The similarity in the groups reaction is interesting.
The guy waited until a play was about to happen to change the channel.
If that happened during my favorite team`s game (especially if it was an important game) I`d be mighty upset too.
Oh, and to the people who "don`t get" sports fans or athletes: We don`t care.
We "don`t get" people who spend 40+ hours a week pushing pixels around a screen, or people who`s only real social contact is over Teamspeak with their guilds. Maybe we`ll turn off your power during a tough raid boss, hey? And why does it matter?
IT`S JUST A GAME, right? ;-)
There really is no difference.
Well, then there`s crap like this:
"i hope i catch him near my pub so i can shove that remote so far up his bagpipe that his grandchildren will be `muted` and his wife (like he could ever have one) would thoroughly enjoy the `previous chunnel` button."
Which is doing absolutely nothing to dispel my statements...
I tried to like sports but they just bore me so much. There is only three sports I like and the first two ain`t even real sports. Billiards, video gaming, and women`s beach volleyball.
I play videogames. That`s pretty abstract. I don`t, however, spend hundreds of dollars on tickets to go watch *other* people play videogames, nor do I spend money on costumes(jerseys) of my favorite videogame characters, nor do I paint myself the colors of Red Team before a match and then scream wildly every time a player scores a point. The fans who take sports to these extremes could be putting this sort of time, money, and effort into more worthwhile and meaningful things. Now, if you`re spending time protesting over a war or going on strike to get better treatment from your employers, that`s fine. It`s just that the outcome of a sports match has no real impact on the real world, and thus a large amount of time or money spent on it is somewhat wasteful.
Apparently "AAARRRGGHHH!" means "Dammit" over there.
As for sports in general, you see I`m a big fan of any sort of athletic competition. Soccer, Hockey, Gridiron Football - it`s all good.
Seriously though, you don`t have to act like a pompous prick if sports aren`t your thing. Modern impressionist visual art isn`t my thing, but I`m not going to knock it. You know, because I`m not a d0uchbag and all.
I do however think this prank is over the top. If I were watching a movie, and someone would turn off the TV in the middle of an action-buffed part, I`d be pretty pissed as well.
Really you pompous ass? So no one, from this point on, is allowed to enjoy anything that (pfft) `catbarf` has not pre-approved? Suck a dick Mr. Wanna-Be sophisticated.
And catbarf? I agree with you. Except I don`t hate them. I just feel sorry for them not being able to control themselves from getting so worked up. I used to be one of them. I was a quarterback in high school. It was my life until I got tackled and went through 6 surgeries to repair a hyperflexed knee. I`m permanently out of the game. It made me realize that there are more important things.
Awesome. I absolutely hate people who get worked up over something as ludicrously abstract as a sport.
I agree. It`s so pointless.
catbarf... why do you hate them... what did they do to you..
I am doing that since it`s the world series!
Here I come Boston!
