My favorite team is any team my son is on and Team USA Water Polo!!
I agree to a point, MANY MANY professional athletes give back to charities or have charities of their own that help with distasters like Katrina or build houses for people who cant afford them, also many give back to different types of charities like mental health and cancer research. Yes they make alot, too much compared to people like doctors, surgeons etc. But they are paid privatley. I am sure the income tax they pay helps give back as well, not too mention sports in general generate millions of spin off jobs around the arena and around every town and city whether there is a team there or not there is usually a store selling sports clothing.
