    In your opinion, how do sports help build community?

    Sports are amazing avenues to build casual connections, friendships, and ultimately communities. Being a fan of sports or a particular sports team allows people to connect on a different level. Strangers can sit in an airport and quickly begin conversation while watching a game on tv or noticing a logo on someone's clothing. Sports provide a commonality between people that can build an instant connection. Sports allow us the opportunity to shed our political, religious, or sexual identities and just be fans. They allow people to come together and cheer on their team. 
    During times of great success, fans can be galvanized by wins and championships and in times of significant futility, those very same fans are united by their team's challenges. Our society has witnessed the community that sports can bring in the days after 9/11, after the Boston Marathon Bombing, and even during the COVID 19 pandemic, we are seeking comfort from the community that sports have afforded us in good times and in challenging times.

    What is your favorite sport to watch?

    My favorite sport to watch is women's lacrosse. As a basketball person, people may not believe this, but I could watch women's collegiate lacrosse all day. I love the history of the sport and that the game was once played of fields that were miles and miles long by Native Americans. To see women playing today with such speed, grace, and athleticism is truly a thing of beauty. I have had the opportunity to watch many NCAA Division I Final Fours and Championship games and have always left those games being so impressed by the young women who continue to elevate the game with their amazing skill and determination. As a fan of many sports - by watching lacrosse, it is easy to see how so many sports translate to others. Lacrosse has many similarities to basketball be it in terminology, positioning, or understanding angles. These similarities are some of the reasons I fell in love with lacrosse when I played it for the first time in college.
