If you're like us, you're frustrated by the public's obsession with sports. It seems that most people are so interested in sports that they assume everyone loves football, baseball, and hockey. They expect us to know how to respond when they corner us with the ubiquitous "how 'bout them dawgs?". They think that a man who doesn't like sports is less than a man, that a person who doesn't follow football or baseball or whatever is somehow not normal. Sports are even considered to be so essential to society that it's thought that even children must participate in them in order to grow up "normal".
But from our point of view, we don't understand how otherwise rational people can devote themselves to a mere game. We don't understand why it's accepted as normal for grown men to collect baseball cards and worship other men. We don't understand how an overweight, beer-swilling sports fan can somehow share credit for a team's "win". And we don't understand why, when the vast majority of us are not athletes, we support this idiocy. For your reading pleasure we have posted a number of essays that point out the fallacy of sports. We hope you enjoy them.
I hate all sports as rabidly as a person who likes sports hates common sense.
-H. L. Mencken
