Do you think sports is glorified way too much in today's society?
Scientists, health professionals, and businessmen are not glorified as much as football, basketball, soccer players. The thing I have to ask is who even cares about sports. Do you think it is given way too much value in today's society?
Yes, sports is over-glorified. How many kids waste their potential on sports, when they could be learning something useful to themselves and to society?
If you're not a Manc, you're a wank!
When I play with men and their balls, you'd better believe no sports are involved.
Yes, but the alternative - war, is worse.
i'd rather that more emphasis be placed on the fine arts, but I can't do that by myself.
You are supporting all this foolishness when you subscribe to cable TV.

It's an opiate for straight men- along with sex, booze and sometimes weed and other drugs. Males have nothing to do anymore; we evolved hunting, fishing, building, etc. So now you have to keep them drugged.
If only sports were an opiate for straight men only. But we've seen here this week that that's just not the case.
Oh, and I don't subscribe to cable TV.
