My 6 Favorite Sports Teams (And Why)

I don’t care for sports. I don’t watch them. I don’t follow them. I’m a geek. All the knowledge that would go to memorizing sport stats instead goes to knowing X-Men stats. Sports just ain’t my thing and I’m totally fine with that. My mom still thinks I’m OK.

Do the sports! Win the points!

But I do have favorite sports teams. If you were to point at a popular national sport, I could probably definitely name a team I ‘like’ or ‘root for’, as is the proper vernacular. Most people pick their favorite sports teams based on geography or legacy or any number of normal reasons. I’m probably a little bit different.

Super Bowl Sunday is stampeding towards us on the gridiron, and what better way to celebrate than by uniting jocks and nerds into one glorious list? Easier said than done, it seems.

Take That, Jocks!

My blog is a fairly nerdy blog. Comic books, video games, geeky movies, it’s the natural order of things around here. And I’m not ashamed to admit that I am, indeed, something of a nerd. Been that way all my life. Let’s not even talk about high school. So how about we start this morning by making fun of some jocks! Wooooooo!

I love Bad Lip Reading.

Jocks Are Geeks Too

I don’t care much about sports. When comic books and video games are my thing, football and basketball tend to get pushed to the side. Such is the Circle of Life. But we’re not living in an 80s movie, people! Jocks can be geeks too! Check out this episode of ESPN NFL Kick-Off, where the anchors insert as many Princess Bride references as possible!

That sort of fun is why I still have faith in humanity.
