Straight guys and their OCD love for sports.

They all seem to live and breathe sports. For many of them, it's almost an obsession. I don't know...I just don't get it. It's totally lost on me. It home tonight in the gym. They had some football game going on the monitors and this one straight guy I'm sort of acquainted started talking to me about the game. UGH!...I usually freeze and get all tensed up when the topic turns to sports. He talked about different types of plays and I was just nodding in agreement. At some point, I had to tell him that I don't really follow football. He then asked, "so what's your sport?" as if having an X chromosome means that I simply MUST have some outrageously obsessive interest in some sport. I replied that I really don't follow any sports. The look on his face was priceless, almost delicious, looking at me as if I had three heads with three eyes on each of them. He paused and with an incredulous tone asked "oh, really." He then went back to working out. I just never got into sports. I'm a reasonably masculine guy, so it's assumed that I'm straight and consequently into sports. But I'm not. So can someone PLEASE explain the rabid, fanatical appeal on the part of the straight male?
