HATE THE SPORT!
We should probably start a rolling wrasslin' thread with it being Wrestlemania soon n all and Lucha Underground and NXT being the shit.
horse racing is total shit, granted. But at least the horse is moving at some kind of speed and the jockey could feasibly be killed
It wouldn't do if we were all the same would it.
It would be a truly dull world if we all...etc
There's an ace thread about nostril hair and I hear that thewarn is about to do a liveblog from his dentist waiting room shortly.
It's too soon. Too soon.
Or make a new one.
Or I could go a totes contro thread about how pathetically needy the psychology of sports - particularly team sports - fandom is. Emotionally investing in something you have no impact on so you can parasitically obtain some sense of accomplishment that you have contributed literally nothing towards? Low barrier to entry tribalism that crosses generational boundaries just so you can get a false sense of belonging to something?
Utterly pathetic. Far healthier to pretend you're a wizard or commanding an army of badly painted halflings or a futuristic cyberpunk hacker. Losers.
But what about all the helpful advice I yell at the TV?
Because those genuinely are my opinions
Do it - today is dragging and I need some #controversy
They'll go loopy though, it's a very sensitive point.
I remember a while back someone mocked supporters for saying 'we' in relation to sports team achievements and got a savaging.
planik's all about rugby as well, all the best sports
Not actual sports.
I like a good ol' sport thread. Especially one in which utter despair at poor England performances can be projected.
him: "can we have a NIGHT IN tonight?"
him: "can you get some beers then because there's football on"
and ask endless questions.
"Why is that guy running away from the ball?"
"What does that flag mean?"
"How many kicks are they allowed?"
"So are ALL the red ones on the same team?"
But yeah that's poor boyfriending I have to say. I assume he's normally a bit better than that yeah?
