Sports is pretty important to people – at least as evidenced by this photo…

That’s the scrum surrounding Nationals’ closer Drew Storen’s locker after the Cardinals came back to beat the Nats last night.  Storen is 25 years old and had just completed one of his worst outings of his career on the biggest stage he has ever pitched in. It can’t be easy to stand there and answer questions immediately following that loss. I know it’s part of the job but I give credit to Storen for standing up there, taking responsibility and answering every question.

Based on the faces of the reporters, you might think this is a matter of national security but in reality it’s just a closer fresh off a blown save he would love to forget. If nothing else, for good or bad, this film-noir like photo proves the prominence and relevance of sports in our culture.
