I’ve played a few pick-up games before, but I am just not that into football. I’m even starting to hate the sport after hours of listening to people argue about “their” team being better than “your” team. It gives me the kind of headaches that probably rival the concussions the actual players suffer. I try to divert the subject to topics like the upcoming tennis season, or will say something like, “Man, did any of you see that motherfuckin’ Senate debate on C-Span yesterday? That was some shit! When Boxer slammed Rand Paul at 3:42:51, I threw my Wall Street Journal across the room and yelled, ‘Oh no she didn’t!”
Neither tactic seems to work.
