You probably won’t agree with me, and that’s fine. But here are the thoughts that go through my head (literally) whenever I hear about politics, the upcoming election, and sports as part of the news. Please don’t hold it against me. I’m just being honest.
You know what? I think politics, as a subject, is boring.
I think the same thing about sports. And yet people continue to blather on about them AS THOUGH THEY MATTER.
Now, you might say, politics DO matter. The country couldn’t blah, blah, blah without politics. You know what I say? WHATEVER! That’s right, whatever!
The country runs itself, and I don’t need anything else to worry about. I vote and all that, but the whole thing smacks of hypocrisy. Because if I could vote for who I really wanted to be President, it would be my Mom.
And it doesn’t really matter. All these blue suits in Congress and the Senate run around like little hamsters and nothing gets done anyway.
And frankly the politicians aren’t in charge, God is, and He’s already the highest power in the land.
So there. I wish people would just shut up about primaries, candidates, and debates.
Blah, blah, blah.
Sports. Now there’s something that really gets on my nerves.
I love listening to WGN out of Chicago for talk radio, but I hate it when the sports come on.
Blah State bleat Blah University by a made-up-word of 16 to 47. Halfback Blah ran a made-up-word play from behind Quarterhind Blah for the fifth three-fifths reverse down EVER in Blah history.
Unbelievably boring. And yet you know sports freaks everywhere are recording everything in a teeny, tiny record book.
I didn’t realize how nonsensical sports were until I started listening to the five minute sports report sandwiched in between real news, masquerading AS real news.
And these announcer guys are BORING! And people treat them like demigods.
“Tell me, George, how long has it been since Wide-Retriever Blah scored a touchback while having on incredibly tight pants and a dubious shirt that looks like it shrunk in the wash.”
“Well, Bob, WR Blah is looking at a world record for being the first man to weld his shin guards to his body while running in that position.”
And people lap this up.
You know what I vote? I vote people should shut up about sports and stop including it in news reports when IT’S NOT NEWS!
