If there's one thing I don't give two jack shits about it's Basketball.
Right now as I type this, the local (read Bay Area darlings) team is in the play offs. There is a sea of yellow behind the team. Every year the hubby (a Lakers fan) watches a shit ton of basketball and so he talks about it a lot. Which is awesome. Except he insists on talking to me about it. It's kind of hilarious actually because my eyes glaze over and I start thinking about...anything else...and yet he continues to talk, like I have a clue who these people are. Like I care or follow their lives. It's almost amusing except it last all basketball season long, every year.
Maybe because I like and follow other sports. I enjoy sporting events. I respect athleticism.
I don't really know why he thinks I would give jack shit about Basketball. I've explained my reasons. They are as follows:
There are rules, but depending on who is officiating they may or may not apply. Even though you just saw it, they don't call it and unlike football there are no challenges. You can't even complain or you'll be ejected. The commentators are in on the fucking conspiracy. They show a replay and pretend it's not obvious that a charging/blocking foul was committed and the lame ass commentator is talking about some random shit happening in a star players life, or at a Lakers game what celebrity they can spot in the audience. In football, the commentators talk about it over and over, and explain why the call was wrong, and if it's not over turned it's fodder for the rest of the game.
I don't find lurch attractive. Or Shaggy. Or any other tall lanky wet noodles. If that's your thing cool. More for you.
Any way. I don't give two jack shits.
Go Warriors. I still want you to win, I just don't want to watch.
