"Sport has often served minority groups as the first rung on the social ladder.  As such, it has helped further their assimilation into American life.  It would not be too far-fetched to say that it has done more in this regard than any other agency, including church and school."  - R.H. Boyle (from Sport: Mirror of American Life)
