Your other choice, of course, is to watch the Rams throw a half-dozen interceptions.

Receptions are always so painful to watch when it's your team throwing them.

I have no fucks to give about the Rams. Actually, given half a chance I'll cheer against them. But I love watching Cam Newton lose, and I am not permitted that today.

Hey, if the Cubs can win the world series, The Rams can turn that game around.

Maybe it's just me, but football is so much easier to watch than soccer (basketball tol). Soccer, there's all this running around left and right and it's constant without much going on. Football? There's a setup, an action, and then a moment to have the results analyzed.

NASCAR? I just like loud cars.

"Football" is "Soccer" for lawyers.

NASCAR...? I mean, I can barely watch pro rally. NASCAR is like a traffic jam on Fast Forward.

That sounds pretty fair. Football fans and sports commentors both seem to love talking numbers. It makes perfect sense why fantasy football is getting more popular every year. It lets those guys put those numbers to use.

As far as racing is concerned, NASCAR is still one of the better ones to watch. F1 and Indy are way sterilized with their rules (which are obviously needed due to the risks of open wheel racing), drag racing and quarter mile circle track racing are only fun in person and in small amounts. It might be boring to watch at times, but at least with NASCAR there's shit happening that leads to position changes. That said, going to a Formula D event has replaced going to a NASCAR event on my list of shit to check out. You ever been to a drift event? That shit's bananas.
