I watch a lot of sports and I lurk /sp/. I really like sports and that people can be united with sports but I do acknowledge that /sp/ is what happens when reactionaries get a way to channel their beliefs.
I still love shit posting during games, races, and other events.
Yes, I'm American, fat and watch the NFL. But I generally watch the game for the actual game. I enjoy the plays, formations, game situation, etc. I like watching players that can take over a game because they are beyond the expectations of what people think they can do. On the same level, I actually find it fascinating how when too much is put onto one player's plate. Whether the player is great or absolutely terrible.
Sports are really interesting and breaking down what exactly is going on.
