Listen as I talk with Vince Zunic — “Coach Z” — about the place of professional sports in our society. Starting with Star Trek we work all the way through what the ideal of sports should be and can be and how it has been sorely lacking in today’s world.

Apologies for the slight glitches in my audio. Chalk it up to learning new recording software.

      • Not remaining silent…
        • “Ridicule is one of the favorite weapons of wickedness, and it is sometimes incomprehensible how good and brave boys [and men and women] will be influenced for evil by the jeers of associates who have no one quality that calls for respect, but who affect to laugh at the very traits which ought to be peculiarly the cause for pride.” — Theodore Roosevelt
    • People wanted me to…
  • What am I going to talk about?

    • I asked some friends…
      • Greg B. — “Insightfulness and a unique way of being able to connect with those of different backgrounds and ways of life, off the top of my head.”
      • Oscar M. — “Well you are not your “typical” Christian. You are on the geeky side. And it’s not something you hide it’s just who you are as a person”
      • Curtis C. — “They should listen because you’re witty and have knowledge pertaining to a wide array of topics.”
      • Greg H. — “I think that people should listen to you to be introduced to new ideas and get a fresh perspective on on old ones.  They can experience personal growth but with a sense of humor, and increase their awareness on everything from Geek culture to timeless spiritual Truth.”
      • Janelle R. — “You offer an perspective that will cause people to think & an understanding that will make everyone feel welcome.”
      • Stephen C. — “…people should listen because you have unique, valuable, and entertaining perspectives on issues that matter much and little. Some would assume your perspective because of certain commitments you have (faith, politics, etc) but you do not let yourself be pigeonholed into positions/beliefs simply due to the expectations most often attached to those commitments summarized in titles.”
