    Sport, Fiction, and the Stories They Tell.R. Scott Kretchmar - 2017 - Journal of the Philosophy of Sport 44 (1):55-71.
    The article is intended to reveal important similarities between fiction and sport.

I argue that achievement-structured games carry disadvantages not shared by time- and event-regulated activities. I speculate that achievement gaming came first in our evolutionary history, but show that it (...)
