I enjoy sports even though I am terrible at them. First and foremost, I love the NBA. It's my sport of choice, even if football is more popular and baseball has more history. In my opinion, basketball is the perfect marriage of athleticism, strategy, skill, and speed. It's fun to watch when it's being played well, and when it's being played poorly … at least lots of stuff is happening.
On top of that, I am an unabashed Boston fan. I know that means that most of the country hates me, and hates my teams. A lot of Boston fans are complete assholes, but I try not to be one of them, and I don't begrudge other people their rooting interests. This is because I recognize that sports are, well, ridiculous. But they're still fun, so that's why I watch them. I loathe the Lakers and the Yankees with every fiber of my being, but I'm still friends with fans of both teams. It's all good!
