While I don't mind watching ice hockey, basketball, baseball, and football (the
proper football, some call it soccer), I can't say that I've really missed it being on TV.
Personally, I think sports "stars" are way over paid for what they do. Here a basketball and hockey are 82 games in a season. At 2 1/2 -3 hours each. That's
246 hours a year. Oh wait, they don't actually play the whole game. Basketball is 48 minutes with 4 x 12 minutes, and hockey is 3 x 20 minute periods. So it's
not like they're exherting themselves the whole time. Then there's practice a few times a week and they're even off for 4-5 months during the summer.
This would lead me onto a tangental rant about how expensive stuff is, but I'll
save that for another post.
