I hate when people say "why do you prefer programming instead of football/sports? " . I like sports but I hate all the super addicted people who fight just because someone said " I don't follow your team".

Is too bad to say that I don't know all the players of a team ? If I say so there will be always someone saying " We know that, you are a fucking nerd.".
Oh well sorry for the angry post. I am more calm now.

    I love sports. I love programming. It's a bit painful to balance the two.

    But sports are fun. It's easier to make small talk with someone over sports in comparison to trying to using tech. I can see someone with a specific teams shirt/jersey and instantly strike up a conversation with them. "Hey! Did you see that game last night?"

    Try doing that with tech.

    "Hey did you see about *something interesting*?" And most people will be like "what?"

    @jhh2450 Yeah true. But when I find people who likes sports they are always the fan-super-hyper-addicted type and become angry when you don't know stuff about their favorite team. Maybe I am meeting the wrong people...

    @ChuvaS Well soccer (sorry man just calling it what I call it lol) fans are some of the most passionate fans in the world. They're a bit more passionate than me.

    But I will get really hyper and into games; especially if I'm physically at the game. I get free tickets to my University's basketball games. We get to sit right behind the coaches and players for both teams. So I sit behind the visitors to heckle them just because it's funny. (Also, where I sit is one of the best seats in the house just based on where it's at) You can roast people and there's nothing they can do about it.

    @jhh2450 i am not passionate for any sports in specific but I get really into the game when I am watching. My problem is when people can't have a normal conversation about a sport without having a fight. I know that it is not always the case. And, in this rant in specific, people like to call me nerd (as a bad word, idk why) to justify my passionate to programming. Oh well...

    @AlexDeLarge I absolutely agree with you 😀

    @AlexDeLarge Most people have a reason for following a team. For most it's your hometown team

    And just like companies hire and fire people, athletes are hired and fired. It's a business at the end of the day, do you fire and hire employees who work best for your company (or team).
