Captive Audiences Love Sports

Super Bowl means more to the captive audiences behind bars than it means to most free-world households.  Sports Illustrated recently ran an essay from an exonoree, explaining that "sports are crucial to survival."  Sports allowed Jeff Deskovic "to leave the prison for a while, even if in my own mind."  Critics who want to unplug prison TVs need to re-think their positions:  having a few out-of-prison fantasies may keep the inmates sane.
