Last time I talked about the irony in the differences between professional sports and business in America. It turns out, we are not alone in our confusing systems.
Guys I just wanted to relate a personal situation I witnessed while working at Airbus. So as most of you know, I have been interning in Hamburg, Germany for Boeing’s archnemesis. While working here I have made tons of great friends from all over Europe and experienced so many different cultures and traditions.
One thing that reins pretty much supreme, regardless of which European country my co-workers and fellow interns come from is a love or appreciation for football(soccer).
Did you know 35 million US kids, aged 5-18 participate in organized sports(source). This is phenomenal. According to 2011 Census Data, there were approximately 79 million children in this age bracket. Forty four percent participation by our youth. America and Americans as a whole need to encourage this. With the overwhelming problem of obesity in our country, sports are a healthy outlet which also encourage team work, leadership, and effort…all qualities of successful workers.
