Global Warming and Sports

Those are the two main foci of my life right now.

I spent this afternoon at the UNC-Miami baseball game while listening to Woody Durham broadcast the UNC-Boston College ACC tournament semifinal on WCHL.

I was kind of shocked when I got home and picked up my mail to see the cover of this week's Sports Illustrated.

The cover has a picture of Florida Marlins pitcher Dontrelle Willis standing in Miami's Joe Robbie Stadium- half full of water. The text reads "Sports and Global Warming: As the Planet Changes, So Do the Games We Play."

Inside is an insightful series of articles about the potential horrific impacts Global Warming could have on various impacts of sport: stadiums submerged in the Bay Area and Florida, potential destruction of ski industry, the loss of some of our most fabled golf courses.

Never thought I would see Bill McKibben quoted in Sports Illustrated!

I am really impressed by the insightfulness shown by this package. Sports fan or no, go pick up a copy of SI this week!
