Using the "voices" of the "creators" of intertextualized sport, this article will demonstrate how sport is inextricably linked with performance. As well, an exegesis of the modernist and postmodernist frameworks of contemporary sport will show how many sports have evolved from grass roots to Goffman’s "framed" responses to the cult of celebrity and attempts to attain immortality and how these various responses to the need for human movement create dense archipelagoes of multifaceted cultural formations.
