“In America, this system is carried to the point where a man who can knock a small white ball into a series of holes in the ground with more efficiency and skill then anyone else thereby gains social access to the president of the United States.” – C. Wright Mills
In a professional sport, or even collegiate athletics, to be a champion is one of the greatest feats a team can achieve. After the game is one, a great present awaits them. That present is going to Washington D.C. and meeting the president because they are now a champions. Only in America can someone thrive in athletics and eventually shake hands with the commander in chief of the United States. We as Americans are so quick to fall in love with sports teams and figures all over the nation that even the government sees it only fair that the champions should have the right to come to D.C. and broadcast their success with the president.
