Quote of the morning: On sport

“That is a major part of the appeal of sport.  It is a modern morality play that is supposed to operate in ways we can understand and endorse.
    “Skill, talent, hard work and effort are rewarded.  We understand who the ‘good guys’ are and why they keep winning, even when they aren’t ‘our guys.’
    “Sport is a parallel universe in which good generally triumphs, as it often doesn’t in life. 
    “That is what I find most distasteful about the Essendon doping verdict.”
- Peter Baulderstone, ‘Lawyers, Drugs and Money: An Easter Homily,’ FOOTY ALMANAC
