This is the best time of year to take a break from sports. The college world series is a great trip, but unless you're following prospects, it's just sports for sports sake.

But all sports are sports for sports sake.

You know what i loathe the most about this part of the year? That the Sportscenter Top 10 is the same fuckin baseball highlight every damn night. A shortstop/2B dive and throw to first. An outfielder diving for a ball. A "robbed" home run that was never actually going to leave the park.

Outside of the stanley cup and NBA draft, you can probably take a break from sports for a couple of months to recharge.

Tbf during the middle of the winter, the sportscenter highlights are dunks and flashy glove saves. It's just how sports seasons work.

Stanford got bounced so I'm out. I caught a few games lately because I'm like 5 minutes away and tickets are cheap.

Joey Chestnut choked out a protester that rushed the stage mid competition and he still ate 15 more hot dogs than 2nd place. Hes the greatest athlete of all time.

Joey Chestnut is several leaps ahead of the next best athlete at what he does, therefore he is the GOAT.

Allen didn’t jump the gun, but the electronic sensors in the starting blocks determined that Allen left the blocks in 0.099 seconds – 1/1000th of a second too fast – and officials disqualified the gold medal contender from the 110-meter final Sunday.
weirdness, so they just determine if your reaction time is faster than .1 second you are cheating?

It’s cos it’s not humanly possible to react that quickly. I think the fastest human reaction is like 0.12 or something.

It's not as much a reaction as he just got lucky guessing the gun. It's not a great strategy but previously in the very few times if it worked you really benefited. I still think it's impressive to guess/react that quickly they should just give it to him anyway.

People have gotten really into this Open from what I’ve seen, with largely a “new” crop on the mens side. It’s cool to see, they push Alcaraz a lot but clearly they are right to do so

I've always generally been someone who needs some kind of outside storyline to get into tennis but if there is finally a new crop of talent coming in that can unseat the old guard I might be in.
