So Annoying

Tonight, I was in the computer lab in my dorm, which happens to be in the lobby right by the television.  I have to use the computer lab to do my IT homework because it requires Windows, and I have a Mac.  These guys were out there watching a basketball game, and they started YELLING like CRAZY.  And I had the door closed, but they were THAT LOUD.

But that's not the worst part.  After that, one of them came busting into the computer lab, yelling, "THEY WON BY SIX OVERITIMES!"  All I could think was, "Shut the ^*($ up!  Who told you I really give a ∆ƒ®˚ how many overtimes they won by, or even who won in the first place?"

I just can't stand sports fanatics.  They yell and yell at the TV thinking that somehow they players are going to listen to them.  Then at the end, they act like it's the end of the world if "their" team lost or that life is perfect if they won.  I can't STAND it when they scream...especially at live games.  I can't stand going to live sporting events because I always get stuck sitting in front of the fanatic.

I just don't get it.  When the basketball player throws the ball through the hoop or the football player runs the ball to the end zone, they whoop and holler like it changed their life forever.  I'm just like, "Whooptie doo, a man threw a ball through a hoop.  WHO FORKING CARES???  You don't have to be all loud and obnoxious about it!"  And when they really startle me...that's when I feel like I should just sneak up behind them and whack them upside the head with a crowbar!

Look, if you're just a sports fan, although I don't understand you, I can have some respect for you.  Everyone has things they enjoy, and for some odd reason, that thing for you is watching men chase balls around.  If that's what you enjoy doing, then go for it.  But please, for the love of God, KEEP IT TO YOURSELF!  Don't go announcing the "good news" at the top of your lungs to everyone you know!  Especially not me.  One of my hobbies happens to be horseback riding.  But you know what?  When I go horseback riding, I don't yell to everybody I know, "WOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!  I'M RIDING A HORSE!!!"  Or if I fall off (which never happens of course ;-)), I wouldn't say, "NOOOOOOOOOOO!  I FELL OFF!  IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD!"  And I wouldn't go talking about it to everyone I knew for the next few days and be bitter about it like it had ruined my life forever.

Whew, it felt good to get that off my chest.  Now it's probably time to deal with the hater comments by the EP sports fanatics, unfortunately...

Ohhhh...that's even WORSE when they yell at the ref! I play in the basketball pep band, and there's this other saxophone pla<x>yer who insults the ref like crazy if he makes a bad call. I just wonder if he REALLY thinks he's going to take the call back just because some annoying idiotic fan thinks his mama is fat.

See...I do enjoy watching rodeos from time to time. But I'm modest about it. I don't scream at the top of my lungs at my favorite cowboy and expect him to hear me and stay on the bronc or bull because I was whoopin' and hollerin'. And if he falls off before eight seconds, I don't make a huge deal out of it and act like it's the end of the world.<br />
