|I think I should get to drink every|
time I hear someone say "Final
Four" in the next month.
This is usually the type of conversation I told you about where my husband or I say "You're stupid if you think that" and then the other person says "No, you are." Husband does not think that I "get" the whole sports thing. I get it, I just think people are spending an awful lot of time and getting all worked up over something that doesn't actually have anything to do with them and over which they have no control.
In other sports news, I have gathered more proof of why athletes should really try not to be interviewed or quoted. Minnesota Viking's running back, Adrian Peterson, used the phrase "modern day slavery" to describe the treatment of the "locked-out" players by the NFL owners during labor talks. *Sigh*
|Reality Check. This is a real |
slave's home. I bet all NFL
players have closets bigger
Um, slaves didn't get paid. Also, when they didn't like the working conditions, they couldn't choose not to work. Being refused the opportunity to work due to the lock-out isn't really the same thing. You really aren't going to get any sympathy from people when you make a lot of money, but compare yourself to people who suffered and were abused and lived in horrible conditions. Oh, and who could be sold away from their families. So really, NFL players fighting for a bigger cut of the money is not so much like slavery.
In my own personal sports news, Boy made the high school tennis team. We were very proud of him because he did not make it as a freshman, but worked all year to improve so he would have a better chance this year. Yay Boy! Our less happy sports news is that soccer has moved back outside. It's not really warm enough yet for outside soccer. The weather for SB's game this Saturday is supposed to be 50's and raining. No thank you.
