Team sports are reducing top-level athletic play to city vs. city fanbase competitions

#1 Unread postby OBGay » Wed Jun 12, 2019 11:13 pm

Lol at human beings

I want to discuss this instead of pretending we should be sad about a team of athletes who aren't even from the area (with a few exceptions) not getting the job done "for our city"

They do it for millions of dollars, not because they love the city or because they want to "represent us"

Top-level athletic play is entertaining in its own right... why do we have to attach city names to teams and use them as a substitute for our own shitty lives? A Boston sports team winning a championship is not a fucking achievement for any individual fan, lol... why do we act like it is?

Because of all the Boston winning we are going to get endlessly attacked and can't even rationally discuss

I'm talking about team sports in general right now

If you really think about it, the idea of a random collection of athletes representing a city is fucking stupid, lol

I don't know why it took this loss for me to fully realize it

To use an eggs analogy, being invested in team sports is like being addicted to heroin... you keep doing it for the brief highs, but the brief highs are not worth the lowest lows. Then, when you're finally clean, you realize how stupid the act of being invested/addicted was to begin with.

Sports are there to fill the gaps in our shitty lives that should instead be filled with personal achievements and having a positive impact on others' lives

That last part sounded gay, but yeah
