“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.
