For those of you who say I talk about the Mets on this blog too much…well, you’re going to have to sit this one out! This was way too cool for me to pass up. Does it surpass Dickey supporting Game of Thrones…all signs point to yes (…sorry R.A.).
As is my duty on this site, I’ll try to keep it in the classroom. So, rather than just say “check out this video, its downright amazing! “, I’ll give you some insight on how I would discuss this in my sport management classroom. So, where to begin? How about starting with the power of sport. As a renown mentor of mine, Dr. Richard Lapchick always says, “there’s something about sport”. Now usually his quote concerns the social issues of sport, and how it (sport) can be used as a vehicle for social change. But this seems a little different. Its not monumental, but when little Kenyan boys reenact a few moments from a a single game, it speaks volumes towards what type of impact this game had. Are they reenacting the Revolutionary War? Are they reciting Shakespeare’s Othello? How about the Gettysburg Address? So many historical moments in the history of society, and yet, these students were interested in making a movie about an American sporting event…and here’s the one they chose. Wow.
What else is there to say? Oh yeah….Check out this video, its downright amazing!
