Entertainment: Music, Film, Television, Athletic Performances …


The working theory behind our stories here at SOH is that every story in human history can fall into one of four categories: Commerce, Entertainment, Religion, and Law & Order.

This page is dedicated to arguably the oldest category of stories: entertainment. Covering everything from Greek tragedy to YouTube celebrities not to mention film history, music pioneers, live acts and, of course, athletic performances, the Entertainment category is massive in its depth and breadth of topics. At its heart, sports is an athletic performance form of entertainment, so it would be possible to fill this category with thousands of benchmark moments in sports that skew toward the boring (the first time a player did X, first time a coach did Y, for example). To filter out the most important athletic stories, SOH focuses one those athletic moments that contributed to or altered global discussion, worldwide awareness and/or otherwise have claim to a superlative moment in areas where the game altered the real world outside of the stadium and beyond the box score.
