Sports - Slappy Slapfests

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.  The amount of sports slappy going on is killing me. Killing me.  You know, I am fine with fans, fanatics, people that support their teams. But the slappyness has to stop.

The other day ESPN makes this big deal about who is going to be on the cover of the Madden football video game. So they have a live event, with slappy announcers, along with Cam Newton and Calvin Johnson.  Both are there talking smack, and the announcers are egging it on etc.

The crowd in the background is doing their dog chants, and all of their other useless drivel is being heard.  There is an actual count down to the event as to who will be called the winner.

I was beside myself.  I didn't watch it, but I saw a few minutes.  That was I didn't want to stick a fork in my eye.

Then then then the Detroit Tigers released Brandon Inge.  His 100 batting average would even make Mendoza cry. So all of the slappy fans downriver starting commenting on Facebook:

"I can't believe it! They should have given him a chance"
"I am done with the Tigers!"
"He was so good for the community, this sucks"
"I can't believe he's gone"
"The Tigers don't know what they are doing"
"This is horrible. I will miss him"
"He's the reason why I follow the Tigers"

Meanwhile actual sports fans get go on with our lives. Keep it old school, keep it real.

    only a fool would watch anything other than an actual sporting event on ESPN. They've taken sports reporting to a new low all by themselves. Stop supporting stupidity!!!
