Hello! My name is Sarah Lacey and I am a part of this year’s issue of The Finger Literary Journal here at Finger Lakes Community College. I am a sophomore here at the college and majoring in Liberal Arts and Sciences on the writing track. My job us is to provide you all with beneficial and enjoyable content about something I love very much. Sports have become very prevalent in today’s society, whether it be positive or negative. It has reached horizons that people could have never imagined. Whether we know it or not it has affected us in a subtle but timely way. “Behind the bleachers” will take you into the societal effects of sports on the world today. It will contain how sports affect our lives on a day to day basis. Content will contain things on how it has affected areas outside of sports. Affected areas like political and economic factors in our government and so much more. It will also include content that shapes your thinking about sports and what it has done to our world as we know it. Get ready to take a look inside the ongoing relationship between sports and our every changing society.
