You should be a sports-liker part four: the fourth part

Hey. Sports are good.

I’ve so far posted 10 reasons as to why you should like sports, but just for good measure, I’ve decided to post three more.

11. Pretty much anything is a sport. If it is competitive, it is sports.

Do you like to eat? Well, there’s a sport for that. Do you like to run around in a big ball and hit other people running around in a big ball? Well, you’re in luck, buddy. There’s pretty much a sport for everyone, heck even darts is a sport! That’s crazy! You should join a sport.

12. There are these things called “beer leagues” that sometimes involve people drinking, and it can sometimes get out of hand but also fun.

Beer leagues are like recreational leagues with alcoholic beverages involved. Not convinced yet? Me neither. I’m not sure what the appeal is, but if you are a big fan of being intoxicated, sports probably make that even more enthralling.

13. If you like sports, you could be like me.

Let’s face it: I know my readers sometimes wish they were me. Being a sports guy, it’s understandable. I’m also very talented at being awkward and also really good at sitting on chairs weird. These are some talents I know that others wish they could have. But, I have good news for you! If you like sports, you can sort of be like me. This means that, ultimately, if you strike up a conversation about sports, I will be interested and therefore you can ask me how to be good at things. At the very least, we can become excellent friends.

Let me know if you’re not convinced yet. I’m pretty sure everyone is, though.

You should be a sports-liker part three: Convinced yet?

I’ve decided that, in case you aren’t convinced that sports are indeed good, I should post a couple more times about the different reasons why sports are good.

8. Sports are fun because you’re allowed to have favourites.

If you have kids, you know how difficult it is to not have a favourite. Sometimes, one is just cooler than the other. But, with sports, you’re totally allowed to have favourites! That’s the point of sports! You’re also allowed hate other teams, which, again, is probably something you shouldn’t do as a parent. You can also make fun of other people for liking terrible teams, but it is only recommended if everyone else likes the team that you like and everyone else hates the team that the person you are making fun of likes.

9. You have the ability to wear sports clothing and back yourself up.

We all know it’s cool to wear sports things. Casual Friday at the office? Time to put on my Minnesota Twins jersey! A lot of people wear baseball caps but also do not have any clue about the teams that they wear. Those people look like goofs to us sportsers. If you start to like sports, then you can become knowledgeable, and at least know a player from the team you wear. Then, you look cool in front of all the people surrounding you.

10. If you’re ever in a conversation, you can say, “how about that sports team?” and know what you’re talking about.

Let’s face it: everyone is faced with an awkward situation at least at one point in their lives. With a knowledge of sports related items, you can avoid all awkward situations as they arise! Simply say, “Well, how about them (insert local sports team here)?” This way, if they are a sportser, they will respect you immensely, and if they aren’t, well you just proved that you’re cooler than them. Don’t let it go to your head, though. I stay level-headed all the time about my sports knowledge.
