Here’s something that makes me so annoyed I yell at my TV- athletes and sports broadcasters that start to take themselves “just a little too seriously”. They put on a suit and become overly critical and humorless…spouting statistics and “formulas”…start to use phrases like “the pageantry of the sport”…spend their time pointing out what other athletes are doing “wrong” and forget that their job is (at it’s core) to talk about games that children play at recess in grade school. I know sports has become “big business” but I still find myself yelling , “Dude, lighten up…you get to hit a baseball for a living, talk about a game for a living, strap on skis and go really fast down a mountain for a living, drive a race car, or for God Sakes pedal a freakin’ child’s BMX bike down a ramp for a living! Shouldn’t that be just a little bit fun? Shouldn’t you remember just a little bit how lucky you are to “play the game”?
