Sports is a topic that many people discuss in coffee shops, the workplace, bars, family gatherings, over the radio and other forms of media. It's practically everywhere as it affects our lives and communities in so many ways.
How so? Let us count the ways...
We're conducting a five-session course called Sports Nation.
This is an opportunity for sports fans everywhere to attend a class where they talk nothing but sports. It is inspired by that course in Bates College (Lewiston, Maine) -- ahem... The Red Sox Nation: Baseball and American Culture.
But more than talking, through Sports Nation, we seek to understand the social, cultural ramifications of sports in Philippine society and look for ways utilize sports as a force for social change.
We have two sections where each is enrolled in five two-hour sessions.
