Beijing Olympic 2008 opening ceremony giant firework footprints 'faked' - Telegraph: "The fireworks were there for real, outside the stadium. But those responsible for filming the extravaganza decided in advance it would be impossible to capture all 29 footprints from the air."this is why I love 'sports.' Sports are not fake. Meanwhile, entertainment can be -- and is.
Sports are games of time, space and relationship. In the world of entertainment, the space and lines between space and time are not real.
One can watch a movie and have the exact presentation over and over again -- without a worry of time. Same too for space. Watch the movie in a cinema or at a home in any city -- and it is nearly the same.
No so with sports.
I am not worried about the fireworks being 'fake.' However, we must be certain to never let our sports become 'fake.'
Now, it is off to artistic gymnastics -- a sport more sporting than professional rassling.
