Sports = Your reality shows

January 16, 2012 1 Comment

Amazingly, you could watch 72 straight hours of Bravo TV.

For some reason, the semi-scripted trysts and idiotic sound bites from cartoon faced bozos/housewives cure your ADHD.

The story telling is so compelling. You feel like you really know these people. That you can relate to them even though they spend their time having cocktail parties, making cook books, going on vacations, and generally just being seen having cocktail parties, making cookbooks and going on vacations. It’s not about what they do, it’s about why they do it…

Wow…

So, let me blow your mind.

For guys, it’s kinda the same thing when it comes to sports.

If you can’t understand why your guy can spend a whole day watching football, disappears from sight during march madness, or shits himself when his fantasy team explodes or implodes, here’s why: It’s all about the back story.

That’s right, it’s not the yac’s, ERA, and fg%, it’s the stories that make those numbers possible.

(What the hell is a yac?)


To illustrate this point, were going to make some Athlete/Housewives comparisons. Stick with me.

A: Girls are intrigued by the housewives because they have fame and money, and are free to pursue their passions (cooking, bogus singing careers, etc.).

B: Guys are intrigued by athletes because they have fame and money, and are free to pursue their passions (playing sports, bedding women)

Once more…

A: Girls watch the housewives because the story is intoxicating. There’s drama, and conflict, feuding, and controversy.

B: Guys like sports because the stories are intoxicating. There’s drama, conflict, feuding, and controversy.

See what we’re doing here?

The appeal is very similar. And the moral is, if you don’t have an appreciation for your man’s interest in sports, it’s because you don’t know the story. Ask him to explain it to you.

Did you know the reason the team lost that playoffs series was because one teammate slept with the other teammate’s mom? Wild!

Did you know Player A overcame an addiction to make it back to the big show?

Did you know that despite his tough persona, this athlete is a huge diva? Yup.

Sounds more like your brand of television programming doesn’t it?

WIFEABLE – MUCH BETTER THAN COSMO…
