These days, professional sports are just as entertaining as anything you can find in the cinema (or on Netflix). Popular sports like football, basketball, and mixed martial arts have transcended the traditional label of athletics into a category of dramatic and magnetic entertainment.
What we’re already familiar with are the long-established narratives in sports that the archaic fan is used to; dynasties, record-breaking performances, the loveable underdog upsetting the favoured giant, or a back-and-forth, nail-biting game seven. I think we can all admit that it would be next to impossible for us to fall out of love with these stories. But we are living in a new age where pointless, ephemeral images are shared with friends on a daily basis to keep a ‘streak’ going, and where a Turkish butcher can go viral through Instagram’s explore page — an age where us sports fans have to get with the times.
Social media gives us a glimpse into the the lives of the compelling athletes that stand out above the rest. I mean, just imagine what Diego Maradona’s Snapchat story would look like, or picture the late great Muhammad Ali’s poetic trash talk as Instagram captions. Social media gives fans a better seat in the theater of professional sports.
