Ratings for professional sports have never been lower. The primary reason for this is that sports have become a low-vibration form of entertainment over the past couple of decades, but never has it been more prominent than this year.
With crowd noise being pumped into every sporting venue, and a mostly-empty stadium providing cavernous sounds during the game, most of the raw emotion is drained from the action. While the action on the field is the same, it’s never been the action that raises the hair on your arms during exciting playoff moments – it’s the energy from the fanatic crowd. With that energy being removed, it’s much easier to be reminded that you’re just watching adults play children’s games.
On top of that, however, is the radical politicization of sports as it merges with the mainstream media. Positive moments can no longer just be positive – there must be an equal and opposite negativity associated with them. Such is the case in this story about Justin Turner, who achieved his lifelong dream of winning a World Series, only to get blasted by the newspapers because he celebrated with his team despite an asymptomatic positive test for Covid-19.
Both the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Dodgers won their series in game six.
