Poor Walt Disney must be turning over in his grave.

If there is any question why today's generation is considered selfish and self-absorbed, one need look no further than the broadcast of the football game on Monday night, January 11, 2016, between Alabama and Clemson. After every play, the camera zooms in on one or more athletes celebrating every little thing with fist pumps, punching one's chest, pointing to the sky to praise God for letting him win that battle, etc. It seems every kid in today's generation thinks the world revolves around him/her. We have divas everywhere. Disney owned ESPN is one of the worst perpetrators of this self-deification. I want to watch the football game. I do not want to watch a Madonna wanna-be posing and strutting and acting like a fool.

As a Christian, I am offended by the pointing-to-the-sky-shenanigans. If God helped you succeed on that particular play, it means God did not help the players on the other team. Do you think God works like that? If your church teaches you that, and I am fairly certain most or not all Christian churches do, then God help all of us.

One would think the coaches would see some of this stuff and teach their players to act appropriately, but I gave up on that hope a while ago, because I realize that today's coaches are the parents who taught their kids it is okay to act in this manner. I gave up hope because I realize that today's college and high school administrators would rather have a multi-billion dollar endowment and look the other way. I gave up hope because guys like Adam Jones and Vontaze Burfict are allowed cross the line of good behavior time after time after time. I gave up hope because sports writers and sports editors from the Pacific to the Atlantic oceans continue to glorify these guys as long as it sells papers or advertising space.

I gave up hope on a lot of things in today's world because I watch shows on the history/military channel and see guys fighting for this country to keep us safe and free and they come home dead in a body bag or mutilated. I gave up hope because even though I love sports I hate what sports has become. I turn on the tube to watch a game and all I see is the media, the athletes and administrators acting like idiots. I gave up hope a long time ago because CLASS is dead.
