If you watch sports, you probably don’t want to read this because i’m essentially going to call you an idiot.

If you watch sports, you’re an idiot. . . . . I told you not to keep reading.
I thought it would be funny to just end it after that last sentence, but i like to read my own writing and it wouldn’t be fair to me if i did that, so i won’t.
I’m writing this is because of all the unrest that is going on around the world. Matt, how on earth are you going to tie in unrest and sports? I’ll tell you how. Because i’m the man, that’s how.
Ok, how much happier would the people in egypt be if they had tons of sports to watch like we did (assuming that they don’t, because it’s egypt and they still have pharaohs and what not)? I mean at the end of the day, who cares what’s going on around you as long as your team wins the superbowl or the. . . . i can’t even think of any of the other big tournaments. That’s how cool i am. Really i can’t. Now it’s kind of bugging me. Hold on. . . . . . The world series? that doesn’t seem right since i’ve never heard of anyone else in the world playing in it.
Anyway, that’s not the point. The point is this. What better way to dumb down the masses, then to get them to care about things other than what’s going on in the government. We (and by we, i mean you) watch these sports and we invest so much energy and time and money into these things that when something occurs in our lives that maybe we don’t agree with, we turn a blind eye and instead turn on the television. We look away and focus on grown men throwing an effing ball around like Cro-Magnon man.
Really? You’d rather watch men in spandex groping each other than be informed on what’s going on in the world? That’s right. The two are exclusive. If you love one, then you despise the other. That’s how it works.
How much better off would the world be if people had priorities that were more conducive to an aweseomely functioning government? Keep in mind i say this as i spend countless hours writing opinionated letters to the world and checking facebook to see if anyone “liked” them. Turns out i’m a hypocrite. . . . and i don't vote.
Anyway, I’ll leave you with this quote:
“Watching sports is a boring waste of life and time. Losers are still losers and people who watch from the benches spending hundreds of dollars to waste 2 hours of their lives watching men get sweaty are the biggest ones.”
