Football has gone to shit.

Baseball has replay and now a future clock.

Soccer's not even a real sport. LOL

Today I'm flipping channels and see some cowboys doing that bull-riding thing. Cool, I've never watched more than about 10 seconds of bull riding in my life, I'll check it out.

The first rider needs 8 seconds to break some record. He's doing it! But the clock on the TV screen stops at 6 seconds?

Announcer says a judge stopped the clock because he felt he saw Cody "touch". (with his other hand?)

Cody is furious and "challenges". Instant replay comes into effect and the ruling is overturned. Cody gets his record.

Challenges and replay in bull riding? I think I'm done.

Yeah, sounds like it would have been preferable for “Cody” to miss out on his record based on a bad call from a judge. That seems fair

Soccer is a real sport. A real boring sport.

That's why the fútbol announcers all have to scream like that when there's a goal... It wakes the viewers up, so they can see that the score changed, before they doze off again.

If I want to watch that soap opera bullshit, I'll turn on Days of Our Lives.

Hockey my friend, hockey. Yes they have video reviews, but the refs and linesmen do a pretty decent job of making the right calls. Considering how fast paced the game is.

Hockey is just soccer on ice. But they allow fistfights, to give viewers another reason to wake up briefly.

Hockey should never be considered boring. I wish I'd discovered it earlier in life.

I’m hooked.

Why do you care?

Seriously, what does it matter to you?

Do you get some sort of perverse self satisfaction by pointing out that I had a sports rant in one thread and then started a thread about the biggest game in sports?

Jesus dude. Go away, stay out of my threads and put me on “ignore”.

Bowling is probably equally boring.

I prefer to engage in sports rather than spectate.

I'm a distance runner. Watching running is boring, but running can be inspirational, rejuvenating, and let's not forget: healthy.

There are two similar sayings I have about running: Without my sport, your sport is boring.

And, my sport is your sport's punishment! Smile




Don't believe everything you think.

Hockey is the reason why Canada can be a whole nation of super-polite people, seemingling all the time.

They bottle all their aggression, frustration, and general human failing and then let it all out in the rink.

It's "The Purge" on-ice.
