Episode Description
Saturday, Sep 14, 2013 - 5:00 PM    "The Collision of Sports and Politics" On occasion, a sports story breaks free from the sports section - as highlighted by this week's Time magazine cover story, "It's Time to Pay College Athletes". These headlines are less about the latest star or the final score and more about culture, politics, and who we hope to be as Americans. Should we build flashy new arenas in bankrupt cities? Do we cheer from the stands or cringe as we watch our children butt heads on the football field, risking a future of potential brain trauma? On this week's Moyers & Company (check local listings), Dave Zirin, sports editor for The Nation - the magazine's first sports editor in the publication's 148 year history - joins Bill Moyers to talk about the collision of sports and politics.
