It's Just a game
Many people would have been willing Andy Murray to beat his opponent Novac Djokovic, and similarly in Australia many people would have been cheering on Victoria Azarenka as she beat Li Na.
Though great sports people in their own right, the way people worship them, makes them gods in their supporters eyes. Though of course there are many who would deny that. It is true that if these great players started to lose against other opponents they would soon start to fall from the pedestal on which they have been placed.

It is the same with any sport or sports personality, or even national, professional, or league football teams. Whether you're a fan of Senior Bowl or Pro Bowl, whether you're a fan of British football and Manchester United, or any premier league team.

Regardless of the high paid personalities at the end of the day it really is just a game.
There are nurses out there who put in hours of dedication, carers who do the same for little or no money. What they do is not a game. There are emergency services out there who are there for you should something go wrong. What they do is not a game. There are rescue services out there, the majority of whom are volunteers. What they do is not a game. All these people are not driven by cash reward or a hunger for stardom.

Life itself is not a game (though many profess it is), life is a serious business, we are here to help our brothers and sisters when and where we can and able. So friend - be a friend. Even if you're not a Torah believer, take time out and help someone out. Ah-mein.
