Odds can be against any given occurrence, but that doesn't make it impossible. As has been observed, the odds against becoming Pope are about 6 billion to 1, but it happened to somebody. That said, the odds on becoming a professional athlete remain very long, even though that is a dream many of us have had, perhaps going back to our days playing tee-ball or 'horse,' biking to school, or wrestling with a sibling. Nevertheless, it does happen, and there really are athletes so talented or so powerful that we buy tickets to see them play.
Which tickets do you want? MLB baseball tickets buy you a chance to see guys who can hurl a ball over a hundred miles an hour or smack it over the wall. NBA basketball tickets put you in the arena with guys who can sink a shot from across the court or float in the air up by the rim and slam it down. NASCAR tickets let you watch drivers who can maneuver within inches of each other while flying through traffic that's moving a couple of hundred miles an hour.
Part of the job of many pro athletes is to represent us and the places where we live. Entire cities bask in their glory when they win and mourn when they lose. That's all part of the way we experience some of the highs and lows of life through sports. So even though odds do not favor actually becoming a professional player, odds are excellent that you will enjoy tickets to witness the pros doing what they do better than all the rest of us.
