Rooting for a Common Goal in Michigan

Alpena, Michigan

Story Narrative:

How do sports bring people together in your community?

"Sports bring people together in the community because it gives everybody a common area to cheer for, whether it's for one team or the other. It can help bring people together to root for a common goal, to push even further improvement for their achievement. And it can also add excitement between two towns or two teams that maybe competing against each other, as long as the sport is done using good sportsmanship and people that understand that it is just a game and that it's not a life or death situation. People can take it for what it is and truly enjoy everybody's company, whether you're competing with them, against them, or just rooting for the competitors. That's something that everybody can get involved with and take part in cheering for somebody or somebody that they're close to."
