I don't know Walker, I think Catherine has found a much more serious game than the phony sports games we follow. As if the games we play have any relevance with real life, here is a game that is being played on a daily basis with REAL peoples lives. Where's the play by play commentary that shows the melodrama of winners and losers, broken lives and marriages because of the inhuman way we play with peoples incomes?

Instead we have to glorify the silly games we play that entertain and bemuse us, while the silly lives of these overpaid pompous athletes are front page news that has nothing to do with real life.

It has been said that you can tell a lot about humans by the games they play- how about the games we play on each other, while peoples lives go down the drain. I like the game that Catherine presented as it has more real life twists and turns than any phony footie match. A boot to competiton everywhere. Lets learn to get along, instead of always competing for a trophy that someone else wins the next year. Futility.

If you were a real athlete then your name should be runner. You sound like another couch potatoe with a name like walker.

I love MotherJones, Catherine. I don't know how I missed this spiffy little game. Sadly, you will notice things we need (i.e. more good teachers) are declining. Things we don't need (more low-paid fast food workers & lawyers) are increasing.
