    imagine all the money invested in the superbowl, all those cheering fans full of energy and devoted to a common cause. now imagine each one of those people walked out of the stadium at the exact same time, and each picked as many people as they would have spent dollars at the event, and each cheered not each other but the people they helped, and they were devoted to just listening to the dreams and aches of the people they find.

    if you couldn’t take the time to imagine that happening, then you could never dare to do such a revolutionary thing. but i’m betting at least one of you is going to walk outside right now and give away one dollar to the first person they see, for no reason, accept nothing in return except for requesting that they may just listen to whatever is on that other person’s heart and mind. wish them well and walk on your way back home. and don’t tell another living soul what you just did, because that wasn’t the point at all.

      Hi. The super bowlof like industries everywhere add to the economy, keep people in jobs to prevent homelessness, inspires children and adults that they can overcome limitations. Your perspective is limited.

      Right on what’s not the point but theres more on what is….
      Seems too simple to even mention how a ‘story’ told is never the same as the original. So much so that even the main characters are different.

      The athletes are overpaid. If you knew anything about sporting history, you’d know that the commons were sacrificed so that the general public would devote all their time and money into watching “professional athletes” play sports as spectators rather than participate themselves without having to pay a single cent to anyone, any club, any organization, any school, but simply using the free land God had given us.

      Professional sporting has taken away our freedom, not encouraged dreams. It’s boost the economy, but at the price of the freedom to play wherever, whenever the public wants. Even street hockey is now seen as a threat.

      Your perspective is limited.

      Yeah, the athletes get paid too much money,so we should stop going to movies, sports games, concerts and watching TV, olympics and enjoying all that, and give the money to the poor? I can’t afford games or don’t prioritize attending one with my limitted finances. I enjoy watching local community sports and college sports.I volunteered at a homeless shelter and have worked in many indentured servant service work jobs. But I dont begrudge football players who make alot of money, or people who make a lot of money for that matter. Yeah, sports has changed. The world has changed, life and society by nature changes. Who can’t join a sporting team and play in public places? I see it all of the time. I haven’t lost one iota of freedom due to professional leauge sports. It’s simplistic and false, that the world would be a better place if everyone who was going to go to the super bowl hadn’t and had given money to the poor instead.
