“Why do you like baseball so much? It’s so slow and boring.”
Every seamhead in the world has gotten this question more than once. We’re not the only fans that have had to defend our sport. Here are some other greatest hits:
“Why do you like hockey? It’s all about fighting.”
“Why do you like football? It’s violent, dangerous, and the players are stupid.”
“Why do you like basketball? The players are all showboats and they just care about their image.”
“Why do you like soccer? There’s no scoring and the players are all flopping primadonnas.”
Well, I’ve got great news.
To answer all your sport’s haters that ask you these questions, I’m about to give you real-life parallels about why these sports are all great.
