The answer to that is it depends on who you ask. Many people would choose sports and many people would choose politics. For me, it's neither. For me, it's far more important how each of us treats the other for all occasions. Sports is a teamwork activity and politics is a compromise activity and you can participate in or enjoy either and still believe in the Golden Rule.
