There, I said it out loud.
I’m a male, over 50, but I never liked sports at all. I’m posting this because I get a lot of weird vibes from other guys who don’t know quite what to make of this. Lots of small talk between guys involves sports (mostly basketball/football/baseball around here), and I can’t really participate. Lots of guys simply don’t know what else to talk about.
In business, it is sort of an icebreaker. I have several contacts who always launch into sports talk, and I wonder what they think when I can never offer anything back besides “Yup, you got that right”, or whatever BS I can string together. It makes me feel like some sort of outcast weirdo. :rolleyes: I can never tell you who is in the running for whatever championship.
I’m OK with it. The women in my life seem to really dig my independence from the sports tit. Funny thing, my dad was the same way. I’m just wondering how many other Dope guys are like this?
For the record, I do like watching the Olympics, or at least I did until recent years, when I feel it started getting WAY over-commercialized, and they started letting some pros in. I also enjoy a wee bit of open wheel auto racing, but cannot stand Nascar. Don’t get me started on publicly financed sports stadiums, because my head will explode.
