I have a modest, unworkable suggestion for recapturing a modicum of the decency and joy of sport.

Pick your favorite game. Mine happens to be basketball. Choose a contest to watch. Mine would involve the Phoenix Suns against either the Golden State Warriors or the Dallas Mavericks.

Mute the announcers. Play baroque music in the background, instead.

Avert thine eyes during commercials and any time the ball is not in play. I know, you'll miss some of the action.

Cheer for an enjoyable game, as much as, if not more than for your team to win.
