Why Are Sports So Important To Us In Today's Society?
Social Media
Sports fans are now able to publicly show their opinions of teams and players for the whole world to see
They can even stay caught up with what their favorite players and teams are up to
Sports Fans even have the ability to get updates and highlights of games going on
Technology has changed vastly over the years and helped sports grow to what they are today
Sports fans don't even need to get up from their couches to watch or even play sports
Technological Advancements
Radio- allowed fans to listens to games from almost anywhere.
Television- allowed fans to watch their team from their own household
Computers and devices- Sports Fans can practically watch any competition from anywhere
Video Games- Sports fans can play as their favorite players and teams.
