COSTA MESA — Don't ever underestimate the impact that professional sports has on the psyche of the American people, especially those who live and breathe athletics. When Lennox Lewis, the professional boxer, announced in a commercial that "Real men don't hit women," his words probably made some men think twice about spousal abuse. And when Drew Brees, quarterback for the New Orleans Saints, spoke out against bullies in schools, his advice didn't fall on deaf ears — he had just led his team to win the Super Bowl.

Some years ago, my 9-year-old daughter Katie and her soccer team had just lost an elimination game in AYSO soccer. She was crying and looked distraught. I ran out on the field to console her and said "Don't feel bad, you will have many more seasons to win. " She looked at me and said, "I'm not crying because my team lost, Dad. I'm sad because I won't get to see my friends on the team all the time. " In that moment I started to rethink the differential in parental perception and goals from that of their athletic children.

Seattle Seahawk cornerback Richard Sherman twerked his way into national consciousness last Sunday night and made himself a household name. In a brilliant marketing maneuver he understood the colossal ratings for an NFC Championship game would provide a stage for some unique activity. With his post-game rant in an interview with Erin Andrews, he emulated Miley Cyrus' attention-grabbing tactics. Much of the public was offended by Cyrus, but it made her a worldwide star and jump-started her career.

During the World Series, focus returned to the debate over whether big spending is the key to victory in baseball. This past World Series featured the Boston Red Sox — with the fourth-highest payroll— against the St. Louis Cardinals, who are 11th in spending. The Red Sox came out on top. Popular wisdom in baseball is that the high payroll teams have an unfair advantage. If that was true, it would follow that the New York Yankees at $228 million would be facing the Los Angeles Dodgers at $216 million in salaries.

So Major League Baseball has devised a plan, to start next season, to allow managers to challenge three plays per game. They have exempted balls and strikes and hit batters as calls that can be challenged, but they claim that 89% of other plays will be included. They claim that this will actually make games shorter. The average review now lasts 3 minutes and 4 seconds and MLB says the new reviews have been tested at 1 minute and 15 seconds. They say this will shorten on-field arguments.

There may be a more gorgeous, beautiful combination of water, views and city than our little glistening isle, but for during a recent afternoon, Newport Beach is heaven. Newport might contain, as does Huntington Beach, Costa Mesa and Laguna Beach, as physically active a group of people as exist anywhere. Recently I left 24 Hour Fitness on Lakeshore in Irvine, which was humming with activity on a weekend. Patrons were actively involved in spin sessions on bicycles, playing squash, scaling surrogate mountainsides, lifting weights and using every form of aerobic workout equipment.
