"Stick to sports" is stupid. First of All™, sports are neither that important, nor even really that interesting; people who get bent out of shape or annoyed that sports media personalities don't "stick to sports" take their sports way too ****ing seriously. Second of All, it takes some combination of privilege and willful ignorance to not be aware that sports intersect with real life; frankly, it's disingenuous to suggest otherwise. And, let the record reflect, I didn't say **** about 'politics'. Sports intersect with way more than just the political. Sports talk devoid of the context provided by real life is nothing more than an armchair-quarterback post facto discussion of X's and O's... which sounds like the most boring **** ever.
