He's not a real sports fan. He only comes on this forum to b!tch about politics.
If you are talking about me, you are correct. I haven't been a real sports fan since the 1970's. Since then I have closely paid attention to only the PGA Tour and Gopher football. That's it. I haven't watched an entire Vikings football game for over 20 years. I usually don't watch their games at all.
If the Twins, Wolves, or the Gopher basketball team are having good years I might tune in to see the last few minutes of their games if I am near a TV and have nothing better to do. I have no interest in the Wild at all. I do have season tickets to the Minnesota Loons but I only got them so I can go to the games with my children and grandchildren. My favorite things about MLS soccer is that the games last only 90 minutes and beer drinking is a huge part of the soccer culture.
There you have it. I am not a real sports fan. If I post about sports it is almost always about some issue that is not directly related to the on-field performance of the athletes. My favorite sports team is the UMD Bulldogs hockey team but I have only watched 4 or 5 of their games since I was in college. Two of them, of course, were when they won their NCAA championships. So if the Vikings, Twins, or Wolves make it to a championship game I will probably plan to watch it.
