U.S. Sports Culture: Introducing the Better or Worse Game | Ep 46

It’s the all new Better or Worse Scoreboard. Michael, Cully and Scott look at how things are different now and has it helped or hurt American society.


The conversation begins with a discussion about Christmas Vacation quotes and transitions into a conversation about youth sports and competitiveness. The hosts then play a game called ‘Better or Worse’ where they discuss various topics and decide if they are better or worse for society.

The conversation covers topics such as international players in pro sports and college athletes’ ability to make money from their name, image, and likeness. The conversation concludes with a discussion about the sociopolitical influence of pro athletes.

The conversation explores the influence of pro athletes and celebrities, particularly in socio-political issues. It discusses the role of athletes as symbols and representatives of certain qualities, as well as the impact of their opinions on society.

The conversation also delves into the power and responsibility of having a platform, and the question of whether athletes should express their opinions. It concludes with a discussion on the influence of athletes and the responsibility of the receivers of that influence.
