Today WFIU played John Williams' Summon the Heroes. I was struck by the martial nature of the theme. In fact, it sounded incredibly similar to themes from Glory and Gettysburg. Is that our image of athletics, that it is civil warfare? Or is the trope of war really an adaptation of friendly gamesmanship? Which came first, wrasslin' or KILL NOW?
