Off-Topic Tuesday: Random Thoughts (Part 2)

Oprah is out of hand. I know I’m not the first person to comment on this, but seriously... crashing weddings?! What an egomaniac.

The World Cup was fun to watch, but how pretentious is soccer? They aren’t “free kicks” or “corner kicks” anymore – now they’re “set pieces.” Players aren’t “fast” or “quick,” they “have good pace.” Nevermind that everybody is diving all over the field (oh, excuse me, “the pitch”) and the games are fixed. Bottom line – soccer will never catch on in America. And to the international fans out there – America will win the World Cup sooner or later. We have too many athletes and too much money not to.

On a related note, baseball is not the national pastime anymore. Basketball is our pastime to play and football is our pastime to watch. Why? Because you only need a hoop, a ball, and yourself to play basketball. And because everybody and their sister watches at least one football game on Sunday, has a fantasy football team, and/or knows how to spell Roethlisberger (OK, maybe not so much on the last one).

Not off-topic, but I’ve gotta go on record now, because pre-season predictions are coming in fast and furious… Notre Dame will lose at least (that’s right, at least) one of its first two games (at Georgia Tech, vs. Penn State), but will beat Michigan. Consequently, my head will explode (again).

not to freak you out, but your OWN sister doesn't watch football, and never has, on Sundays. Not even the Superbowl (I tivo and forward through to watch commercials).

I'm glad that you don't watch football. If you did, it might ruin it for me.
