"What people look for in sports in a moment of crisis is a sense of security," said John Smith, postdoctoral fellow in the School of History, Technology, and Society.

It feels good to have a sense of normalcy." Source: Associated Press; ABC News; Concord MonitorPhilly.comYahoo! News, April 20, 2013; Huffington Post, April 19, 2013
