Glenn Younes: The Alternate Sports Weekend
It’s a weekend that started with an incredible NHL Stanley Cup Final double overtime Kings victory to win the Cup for the 2nd time in 3 years and ended with a Spurs blowout win (3rd straight) over the Miami Heat to win the NBA Championship.
Sandwiched between was the US Open where Martin Kaymer went wire to wire in his 8 stroke stroll around Pinehurst. Plus the World Cup just started.
Can you believe the NHL, Golf & Soccer dominated the sports weekend?
The alternate sports weekend! The weekend that the wannabes make fun of. The weekend that “macho” sports fans say is for dorks or losers or foreigners. The weekend where it’s easy to make fun of. It’s the “if they were playing in my back yard I wouldn’t watch” sports dude line weekend.
Well, I’ve got news for you… We’re actually making fun of you! Yeah, I just flipped it on you. The closed minded fan that says if Tiger isn’t playing I’m not watching is being laughed at and doesn’t know it. The guy who says soccer is boring and slow with not enough scoring. We actually hate you.
The ones who won’t give hockey a chance only cheat themselves out of intense, athletic, hard-hitting sports at the speed of light.
It’s funny to me the clowns that think it’s cool to dog hockey or soccer or golf because that’s what they think is cool. It’s not. You think it’s cool, I understand, but it’s just plain ignorance.
The alternate sports weekend was amazing and only proved to the ones in the know that they do indeed enjoy more than the rest. As for the rest of you, continue your regular ways if you’d like… but don’t ask why we’re smiling. You probably won’t understand the answer.
