ENTERTAINATHLETE$

Michael Schumacher's little getaway



"Games enlist skill and intelligence, the utmost concentration of purpose, on behalf of activities utterly useless, which make no contribution to the struggle of man against nature, to the wealth and comfort of the community, or its physical survival.

Among the activities through which men seek release from everyday life, games offer in many ways the purest form of escape. Like sex, drugs and drink, they obliterate awareness of everyday reality, but they do this by raising a it to a new intensity of concentration.

They re-create the freedom, the remembered perfection of childhood, and mark it off from ordinary life with artificial boundaries, within which the only constraints are the rules to which the players freely submit."
The Culture Of Narcissism by Christopher Lasch (1978)
The Degradation of Sport

But, if an "entertainthlete" can make it to the upper echelons of "The $how", they can have one of these!
