GOOLD OLD DAYS

Theologian Novak, M [Michael] (1976) claims that sports are a form of “natural” religion because both are shaped by what he sees as an impulse for freedom, respect for ritual limits, a zest for symbolic meaning, and a longing for perfection. It is a type of godliness because they emerge out of the same quest for perfection in body, mind and spirit that leads people to form their conceptions of God-conceptions that always embody the ideals of a particular group or society.
