Two Responses to Michael Sam

I don't follow football, but as far as having openly out gay players go? This pretty much sums it up for me:

And, incidentally, as someone who really doesn't understand sports culture, and doesn't find watching sport interesting at all, this is pretty much how any discussion of football sounds to me.


  1. Funny video. And I would much rather hear about archaeology myself than sports. I find watching football to be a powerful sedative.

  2. I understand playing sports (though I've generally avoided team sports, as I have an aversion to being shouted at). I really don't understand the appeal of watching sports, though.

  3. I loved this when I saw it the first time.

    I am a sports addict. played sports into my 30's. Watch the NFL, MLB, college football, basketball. We are opposites. Can we still be friends? :)

    Polly was quite like you when we married. I have won her over, but she tends to "watch" the game with me with a book or iPad in hand. She tends to like going to the game rather than watching it on TV.

  4. You know me, Bruce. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg for you to watch twenty sports or no sports.


Feel free to leave comments; it lets me know that people are actually reading my blog. Interesting tangents and topic drift just add flavor. Linking to your own stuff is fine, as long as it's at least loosely relevant. Be civil, and have fun!
