For the most part sports are just a lot of fun. You get to have a reason to talk shit to your friends, a reason to dress up like an idiot, or a legit reason to cry when your team losses in the championship game.
With everything good in life though, there are always downsides. Parts of it that make it not so enjoyable. Here are 6 of the most annoying things that sports have to offer.
Players That Ruin Your Favorite Team
Every sport has those players that have exceptional talent. They can make plays that shift the whole tide of games. They’ll score that last minute goal or make the game winning shot but they also happen to be a virus.
Guys like Terrell Owens, Pacman Jones, and Ron Artest may look good on paper when they get traded to your team, but it’s only a matter of time before these guys get upset or angry and tear your team apart.
Players That Your Girlfriend Love More Than You
Ok so you know that your not that attractive, your middle aged, and your probably balding but somehow you managed to find the little cutie with the nice booty who actually watches sports. You’re in love.
So you go to turn on the game and all you hear about is how cute Derek Jeter’s eyes are…
Or how Kyle Korver reminds them of one of the backstreet boys….
Or how cute Tom Brady’s butt is…
[Don’t worry, I’ll spare you the image on that one]
And all you wanted to do was watch the game, scratch your balls, and eat some hot wings…. Not necessarily in that order.
Horrible Play By Play Announcers
This can really the whole mood of a game. How does it feel when you are all siked up for a game on Sunday and then you hear Bryant Gumbel’s voice. I dunno about you but I mute the TV as fast as possible.
Whether it’s Pam Ward, Joe Buck, or Dick Vitale… The list of announcers who you wish they’d pay just to shut the fuck up never seems to end.
The Red Sox
Whether it’s the fact that they manage to get rid of every superstar minority player that comes through there (i.e. Manny, Nomar, Pedro, soon to be Big Papi) or if its the fact that as soon as the broke the curse they think they’re shit doesn’t stink or maybe it’s that fever pitch almost made me throwup but the Red Sox have to be the most annoying franchise in sports.
People Who Ruin The Ceremonial First Pitch
I’m not going to say much on this one, I’m just going let you watch some of the worst ones.
The Mayor is the funniest one.
Bad National Anthem Singers
The National Anthem is meant to honor our country and is sung before sporting events to fire up the crowd and get them excited for the matchup, but what happens when you mess up? Well you could just go back out there and try again but that doesn’t always turn out so good.
