Discussing your team outside the playoffs is stupid

    I noticed a bunch of preseason football threads. This is freaking ridiculous.

    This isn't the football forum and no one cares about your team, especially with meaningless games the NFL puts on to pad their coffers.

    I don't mention the teams that I like until it is relevant, i.e. the playoffs. Then there are only a few teams left which all the sports fans will have an opinion.

    1. I don't like the Packers.
    2. Favre's situation is relevant because of the amount of chaos is has created.

    Seems to me that what's relevant is very relative, no?

    I will give one more stab at it:

    Turn on ESPN. I bet within 5 minutes they will mention Brett Favre's name. There will be at least a 3 minute segment discussing it, and there is probably 500 media people waiting for him at the Packers Camp.

    Now if you want to hear about your favorite team's training camp report, that won't happen.

    What else are sports fans going to talk about?

    Mid-Season baseball:rofl:

    Just wait a week and when the Olympics start you can watch 5 minutes of events with 3 hours of soft bio-journalism about athletes who compete in sports no one cares about.

    Amusingly enough, the only two games I watched yesterday was the Yankees/Angels (great game), and USA Basketball vs Russia, an interesting game which the US only won by 21.

    But you don't see me posting about it either.

    1) Favre is going to the Superbowl.
    2) Nostradumbass: "your" (aka. it is YOUR sandy vag, not mine) does not equal "you're" (you are)

    You'll have more luck trying to teach a cat to do a backflip.

    You have to start with a properly placed snap pop.
    About 6 inches in front of the front paws.
    May result in cat peeing on any clothes that you leave in the floor for the rest for its life.

    I would rather not hear anything about sports. I would rather read about midgets with guns and headless canadians :biggrin:

    What the hell, why not? I am very secure in my masculinity and I am perfectly comfortably having platonic love with a man.

    It's all platonic until you whip out the hot pastrami.

    The smashed squirrel is saved for that special kind of love. Once Sanjuro starts his shop and moves out of his sister's apt, he too may find that love one of these days.

    Oh, my apologies. I did not realize that you grew up along the shore in Jersey.

    So don't open the threads and you won't be bothered. Who cares what you would prefer?

    Apparently 25 other people did.

    What, peanut butter stirring wasn't fulfilling enough?

    What? I have to be consistent now just to try and bother Sanjuro?

    Seriously though, Ridefoto exists for a reason. I was just spreading the word.

    Ahh, the glorious, glorious days of the thriving Ridefoto community.

    I do appreciate your devotion to spreading the Ridefoto gospel, though. Your selfless acts do not go unnoticed.
