I almost threw a dumbbell at the television mounted in the high corner near the ceiling in the locker room at the gym today, just to shut it up. They have it tuned to ESPN. Now preface, I am not a sports fanatic to begin with. I'll sit down for the Superbowl and the World Series, and that's generally only if local teams are involved. I do like to watch a good game from time to time. Stats? Standings? I couldn't give a crap. Call me un-American if want. I could recite Ho Chi Minh's life history, but ask me to name a major league coach in any sport and I'm drawing a blank. Let's get that out of the way. Sports commentary is a special pet peeve/that guy of mine. Every morning, there are these two guys, a black guy and a white guy, that literally yell at each other for hours on end. Over... nothing! WTF! It is extremely annoying! Beyond that... "You know, for that team to win today, they just need to get out and move the ball, and play better than the other team." (How insightful, captain obvious.) "The best way to counter a strong offense, is with a good defense." (No f****g sh**.) Seriously, you could stream last season's NFL drivel over the Superbowl during this year's NBA playoffs and the applicability wouldn't be that far off save for some terminology. It all ends up sounding like a group of adults conversing in a Peanuts movie. But these two guys, arguing over some minor, petty, insignificant trait of Player X, for them to just sit there, scream at each other, cutting each other off, non-stop, from the time I went in the shower, to the time I dried myself and left, left me dumbfounded. Who finds this entertaining? Who finds this valuable?
