My God, it's like you read my mind. I will add that it's not only just in professional sports, in all walks of like in general.

Yep. It drives me crazy to see 90 percent of young people and even not so young just staring into their phones and swiping, even when in the company of others. They literally can't seem to avert their eyes. In the office people pull out the phone as soon as they get into an elevator. And it's very disruptive of meetings when people can't put the damn things down and pay full attention.
