Tall Angry Monster

There's something funny about watching sports with angry little women. Maybe it's their spirit, maybe it's their spunk, but if I had to guess... I'd probably say it's their humility. And by humility, I mean an honest belief that they could outplay trained professionals. I won't name names (because few people are important enough for me to remember their names), but I've witnessed more than a few women spewing some fairly humerous shit from their mouths.

I've honestly seen 110 lb women yelling at TV (because the TV can hear you), saying things like "God, if they'd let me play, I'd win the game." Yeah, somehow I don't see that happening. I'm pretty sure there's a reason we're not all making millions playing professional sports.

Delusions of secret athletic abilities dwarfing those of 250 lb, giant, muscley dudes are funny enough. But possibly more amusing, somehow these women don't even understand the rules of the game they're yelling at. How it's possible to not have a basic knowledge of a sport you've watched dozens of times, I'm not sure. But it never gets old hearing people scream "Why doesn't he hit him?!", at a guy no where near the play. Or "He can't do that, that's a penalty", at virtually every play.

I'm not saying there aren't thousands of big fat drunk annoying guys watching these same sports. Because, what would sports be without some drunk fat guys? But in my experience, at least the fat guys know rules of the game. Plus, sometimes the fat guys take off their shirts, and who doesn't want to see that?
