Sportuality examines other words in the same way: community, communication, enthusiasm, religion, spirit, humor, education, holy, sanctuary, sacrifice and victory. In the end, hopefully the reader can reflect accordingly and adjust his or her thinking to thoughts of love, peace and joy rather than of hate and violence. In this election year, we will hear several references to sport as we “war” with the other – or those who don’t share our views. Barack Obama is in Sportuality, as being a community organizer who used basketball as a means of connections within his community, then on the campaign trail, and brought it to the White House.
I believe the ideas in this book are boundless; that one can use it as a tool for reflection and personal growth. It can be a workbook for teams or groups as a means to start positive conversation. Whatever it becomes, it is out of my hands and into yours. Use it for peace. Use it for love, Use it for JOY!
