Daily Prompt: Fandom

Are you a sports fan? Tell us about fandom. If you’re not, tell us why not.

No, I’m not a sports fan. I don’t share Commodus’ (Gladiator) obsession with games (so much so that he plans that after being crowned King, ” The first thing” he “shall do…well, is honor him with games worthy of his majesty.”) Instead, like William Shakespeare’s Brutus ” I am not gamesome. I do lack some part Of that quick spirit that is in” sports fans.

In fact, I think that sports are a waste of time and talent. For instance, if you are a good boxer, why not beat the crap out of some oppressor, instead of wasting punches on someone you’ve no beef with?

What good is it really if you score a goal in football or land your tiny ball in some tiny hole on a large piece of land? Does it really matter whether you hit the ball beyond the boundary or get caught by the fielder? I don’t think so.
