On February 16th at 8 pm, the Connecticut Forum will host a moderated discussion on the topic of The World of Sports: Its Beauty, Corruption and Power.
Why does the institution of sports have such an enormous influence on our lives? What does it say about us that our team allegiances are so powerful that they define us, alienate us, and bring us together?
Since when did illegal, unethical and unsportsmanlike behavior by athletes, coaches, fans and entire institutions simply become "part of the game"? Is it winning at any cost? Or are we winning at every cost?
This no-holds-barred and timely conversation will take a look at ourselves and the social, institutional and economic power of sports.
The panelists will be the legendary UConn Husky Rebecca Lobo, all-time great New England Patriot Tedy Bruschi, the popular ESPN host Colin Cowherd and the longtime New York Times sports columnist William Rhoden. The Forum will be moderated by Linda Cohn.
