I just realized that next to no one will be reading my blog today because of that Sporting Event(TM) that’s supposed to be on TV at some point. Actually it was Cranky who reminded me of it when I stopped by his site.
I’m one of those unfortunate guys who was born without the Male Sports Gene. It’s a tragic condition that renders me completely unable to enjoy professional sports of any kind as well as a general lack of appreciation for beer. This condition also results in an unusually large Geek Gland.
Mind you I don’t mind playing sports myself. Though I’ve gotten to an age and physical condition where most of my sports playing is done with a PS2 controller in my hand, but I can’t seem to give a shit if the Pistons are winning the World Series or if the Lions have made it to the World Cup.
Okay, so I actually do know enough about sports to know that the Pistons play basketball and therefor wouldn’t end up in the World Series, which is baseball and the Lions play American football, but would probably have better luck competing in the World Cup. I just wanted to make sports fans groan a bit.
I love the commercials that air during the game today, but there’s just too much sports crap I have to wade through in order to see the commercials and they’ll eventually either air on regular TV or be posted to the web anyway so that removes the one reason I’d have to actually sit through the game.
Meanwhile research continues on various forms of gene therapy to help those of us afflicted with Male Sports Gene Deficiency Syndrome.
