greetings friends someone tried to post about boxing in the pop culture thread and while boxing isnt pop culture it did get me to thinking why cspam doesnt just have a general sports thread then i saw this funny tweet and realized a general cspam sports thread is the best place to put it

https://twitter.com/Mediaite/status/1391765065179746306

so hey lets give it a shot this is the thread for sports chat preferably of the cspammy variety like transwomen in sports or nationalist dickwaving over the olympics or arguing whether tim tebow or colin kaepernick is the best quarterback of our generation

of course if you just want to talk about sports in more general terms no one will stop you just dont be surprised if someone chimes in with weird factoids like did you know george w bush was a cheerleader and also a war criminal

i was looking forward to watching baseball in mid-2020 and was excited that they were bringing it back with no fans in the stadiums and quarantining the players and so forth. then it turned out that the player safety was a total joke and i felt guilty about watching it

now i want to watch baseball but i still don't know if i should feel guilty (i mean, i probably should, but i already know about non-covid reasons that pro sports are bad)

last week's Rangers-Caps game owned for multiple reasons, even though it gave some of America's most annoying sports pundits ample ammunition

(I'm talking about NBA Twitter people, who saw the line-brawl to start and instantly started posting either "thugs" or "if this happened in the beautiful and pure NBA you wouldn't hear the end of it, but because the NHL is 90% white they can get away with this disgusting behavior")

It takes a guy forcing another guy's head down into the ice with all his effort resulting in a lifelong disability before anybody even thinks that what happens at hockey games is inappropriate for a sport.

The culture around hockey, especially in Canada's prairies, is so hosed up and toxic and only exists because places like Alberta have an incurable sickness of the soul

I feel bad for how much I enjoy poo poo like hockey fights. I always thought they were just part of the game, but reading about how it hosed up Derek Boogaard's (and so many more over the years) life and It's just added violence and head injuries to a sport that's already full of them.
