    You are correct regarding the pay disparity; if anything, gender bias is the least likely reason. I’ll be honest; I just don’t see a future where men and women are getting paid the same to play professional sports. There have been many “moments” where women would seem to get a foothold, and then popularity would wane. As someone who has coached young women and is the father of a female high school athlete, I honestly hope that I’m wrong.

    My brother and I were this way as kids: I wanted to do EVERYTHING and he wanted to stay in his room playing with his Legos and action figures. My kids were and are still the same: one wants to sign up for every activity, and the other would prefer to sit in her room playing guitar.

    I actually played on an Astroturf field in college; in short, they were AWFUL. It was more or less a thin carpet on a cement pad. You fell or slide on that and it was unforgiving. I’m sure that it also led to some of the knee problems I have now. The newer turf fields are actually a huge improvement from those. Do they cause more injuries than grass? That, I don’t know.

    I’m 100% in favor of the designated hitter rule. The overwhelming majority of pitchers hit no better than .150 in a given season; the best barely approach the .200 mark.

    I agree; all the major US pro sports should switch to a “skills weekend” versus playing a meaningless game. The ratings for the MLB All-Star game pale to those for the home run contest. Additionally, there is less chance of a key player getting hurt.

    I agree completely. A lot of the goods and services we enjoy came from “rich people” investing a lot of money towards an idea and doing so with some common sense practice. Think personal computers and cell phones, for example, which all started out being expensive but have now come down in price to levels that are affordable to most of the population.

    I may never have the opportunity, but perhaps my kids or grandkids will be able to travel to space, or fly from New York to Tokyo in a half hour, and we’ll have people like Bezos and Musk to thank.
