Unfortunately, it puts sports on an unattainable fantasy plane, which puts a serious dent in the aspirational appeal that’s always been one of the sports world’s nicest, most romantic elements. As a kid, I thought (however misguidedly) I could grow up to be a ballplayer. But most kids are smart enough to know they’ll never grow up to be Superman.
