Sports and Media

Posted by: | October 30, 2012 | No Comment |

The media and sport go hand in hand.

Where there is sport, there is someone who wants to report on it.

The first true team sport played in America was lacrosse.

There was not much record of actual writings and reports on the lacrosse games that were being played, but it is known that when there is a game there is a winner.  Someone always wants to know who won and who lost.  They drew the outcomes of the games on everything from animal hides to stones.

As Americans became more civilized the way the games were reported became more widespread.  There have been reports of games going on for years and years earlier than anyone actually realizes.  Also as rules were created they were, too, drawn out on stone or in other ways to preserve them for the players to see.
