I Am A Total Douche
I am a total douche when it comes to sports. I’ve never had any interest in sports other than the kid-ly thing of joining a town baseball team when I was really young. This was the version of little league for people too young to be a Little Leaguer. I was quickly poisoned against baseball because our coach was a real bastard and refused to participate in the last few games of the season.
I have never watched an entire basketball game, nor have I ever watched an entire football game. To me, golf is a way to ruin a good walk in a park. Auto racing? A real athletic foot needed there. Soccer? Is that still trying to become an event here?
Recently I realized that I have no idea who anyone is in sports. Their names and faces mean nothing to me. I suspect there are a lot of people like me because when you see a sports guy doing a commercial, they usually have to dress them in a uniform so people will get who they are.
I find it hard to believe that people are so wrapped up in these games and events which will be totally forgotten in a matter of months, unless you are a sports trivia nut. I find it hard to believe there is so much money dumped not only in the sports, but salaried to the players. I mean you should probably make 8 million dollars a year if you can make and guarantee world peace, but not when the only thing you generate are meaningless points.
