Weekend quote – Roland Barthes

There are people who think wrestling is an ignoble sport. Wrestling is not a sport, it is a spectacle, and it is no more ignoble to attend a wrestled performance of suffering then a performance of the sorrows of some classical actor.

Of course, there exists a false wrestling, in which the participants unnecessarily go to great lengths to make a show of a fair fight; this is of no interest.

Mythologies, Roland Barthes
