Not all sportsmen are idiots
Just a quick dispatch today, inspired by a couple of pieces I’ve read today whilst working incredibly hard at being (or at least appearing to be) an Industrious Member of Society.
It is worth remembering that not every sportsman has his brains in his feet/hands/anywhere but his head. And that sportsmen are capable of having a degree of good taste.
Naturally, these sorts of examples are exceptional, but they are reassuring to a horrible snob like me. Sometimes I wonder if I’m spending too much time following sports perpetually populated with idiots and boors, the kind of people I’d hate in real life yet watch avidly week-in, week-out.
I’m glad that’s not exactly the case.
