11. Not into watching them

Can't understand the attachment people have for teams. I wonder why anyone even cares considering how much doping is done in various sports, it renders any record-keeping useless. The Olympics are bullshit too. I run into people who get upset with me for not caring about the Olympics, and I'll ask them, "Who took the gold medal in pole-vault 4 years ago?" and they'll not know. Who I feel bad for are all the young girls from all over the world forced to give up their childhoods in order to endure a grueling life of training - either by their countries' governments or parents - just for a possible moment of glory and then be forgotten within a month.

This is me trying to interact with everyone else when some big sports deal is going on (cartoon is from early 2006 about the 2005 Superbowl - I had to google to even get those few details)
