For the life of me I have yet to figure out why we, as a race, and as parents, continue to fall for the age old myth that professional sport, especially football and basketball, is our way to a better life. Can anyone answer that question for me? Only 1 of every 17 high school football players will go on to play college football, at any level. Only 1 of every 50 college football players will get drafted into the NFL.
