Boo hoo hoo. Someone doesn't agree with me. I'm so sad and offended. How dare someone disagree with my ideas, morals and viewpoints. Somethings just shouldn't be questioned. Independent thought has no place here. I'll force my ideas upon you, but how dare you force yours on me.

It seems to me sports radio keeps getting worse and worse. Most national and many local (at least here in Utah) are spending less time talking about teams and players and coaches and leagues and more time talking about who's dating whom, what they ate last nigh, what party they are going to tonight and other gibberish like that. I DON'T CARE. I don't care that you ate sushi at Nobu last night Derek Jeter. I don't care that you met Jeremy Piven last week. I don't care who Tony Romo is dating or who A-Rod is h*mping. I do care how Rashard Mendenhall looks in the OTAs, I do care that the Athletics have pick up a stud minor league triple-A second baseman, I do care about the up coming season predictions for the Big10 football season. If you sports radio guys can't or won't do that, why should I listen to you? Here's a news flash for you, I listen to sports radio FOR SPORTS NEWS AND INFORMATION not updates on your bowel movements.

Recently I've been getting a lot of flack for my passion for sports and I'd just thought I'd put my reasons out here. First of all people are stupid. Not necissarily everyone but, when you get a group of people together they somehow become profoundly dumb. Examples: driving, put a bunch of people together on the road and you have traffic jams and accidents; congress, self explanitory; eagles fans, also self explanitory (but this could really be applied to any group of drunken sports fans). However many sports is the attempt to go beyond the stupid heard mentality. Put several joe shmoes on the basketball court or football field and you have chaos. Put a bunch of consumate professionals being lead by a good coach on the court or field and you have magic, art and people rising above mere humanity. Also sports is a celebration of the pinnicle of human ability. The amount of time, energy, pain combined with the genetics that have arisen through evolution and the top athletes are closer to superheros than the average couch surfer. Watching Prince Fielder crush a baseball, Dwight Howard throw down a Jam or Steve Smith bust a 65 yard touchdown reception is watching the peak of humanity perform. These people are truly the best of the best. They are singular performers that do what only they can do, of the millions upon millions of people on this planet only these few can do what they do. So when I watch sports, I'm not just cheering on my team or that player, I'm celebrating humanity in its perfection.
