Whatever. Let me get to the point, here.
Classic mistake a lot of girls (myself included) make while getting to know a new guy.
So what if you like sports? That doesn't mean you have to tell the guy, especially if you're just trying to impress him.
I like sports. I do. I watch all my football teams. I watch other football games, if they're interesting. I love to go to baseball games. I don't miss a tennis match. I like sports. But I don't love sports.
Mean Girls is on? It trumps a random basketball game.
A Family Guy episode I've seen 18 thousand times always gets picked over any hockey game.
Anything beats the same Sportscenter highlights that have already been on three times.
You tell a guy "I like sports" and he hears "I love sports and I want to watch them every single day of my lifeee."
Too late. He's already heard it. It's there, in his brain, and it isn't leaving.
So have fun. Have fun watching every basketball game, every baseball game, every football game, every hockey game. Have fun watching the Spelling Bee. It is on ESPN.
