            The world of sports is my escape from the day to day cold hard reality that is my life, people must understand that my life is full of obstacle and it takes a lot of effort just to get started sometimes, sports get me going like nothing else, in my life it is my passion. When I a...m watching football or basketball I am in the zone my zone. A lot of sports break down various sports because it is their job but I do it because I really, really, really love my sports. People must realize that there is a whole world of sports outside of what we see on T.V. I am talking about those athletes that are not in the spotlight like Lebron, Kobe, or Peyton. I am talking about the athletes like me, the ones living with disability. These people are fighting a double battle because they deal with their physical situation just to do something that they all love just to have some kind of outlet and still we get little of no attention for any of our accomplishments. It is like I said before people don't care about the handicap, I should say that some do but most don't. As for me, I will keep doing what I'm doing until someone, somewhere pays attention. Sports gives me and others like me this kind of hope, that alone is reason enough to love the entire world of sports. Just like in the world of sports, people must stop ignoring and underestimating the underdog in the game of life, because the very ones that you count out could be the ones that make the biggest impact. As you can see this thing called sports runs deeper than what everyone wants to realize, it makes people like me believe in somebody.

From his early teens, when throw...ing hoops was a way of dealing with family tragedy, through his scholarship to a US university, career in France as New Zealand's first professional basketball player, and selection to the Tall Blacks, Saker canvasses both highs and lows of a sport where players such as Steven Adams today command multimillion dollar salaries.

            When the colonies that became the USA were still dominions of the British Empire they began to imagine their sporting pastimes as finer recreations than even those enjoyed in the motherland. From the war of independence and the creation of the republic to the twenty-first century..., sporting pastimes have served as essential ingredients in forging nationhood in American history. This collection gathers the work of an all-star team of historians of American sport in order to explore the origins and meanings of the idea of national pastimes-of a nation symbolized by its sports. These wide-ranging essays analyze the claims of particular sports to national pastime status, from horse racing, hunting, and prize fighting in early American history to baseball, basketball, and football more than two centuries later. These essays also investigate the legal, political, economic, and culture patterns and the gender, ethnic, racial, and class dynamics of national pastimes, connecting sport to broader historical themes. American National Pastimes chronicles how and why the USA has used sport to define and debate the contours of nation. This book was published as a special issue of the International Journal of the History of Sport.
