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.
