PASSION PLAYS: An interview with Randal Balmer on Religion and Sports

Mitch “Thunder” Nelles had a chance to chat with author Randall Balmer.

Balmer’s newest book is “PASSION PLAYS: How Religion Shaped Sports in North America.”

Thunder and Balmer talked about the Packers, the Red Sox, the origination of basketball, and hockey in Canada.

And the opportunity for sports to transcend our divisions – religious, political, etc. – and get us all on the same page, like when Milwaukee celebrated the Bucks’ championship in 2021!
