Tired of Sports

Is it OK to admit that I’m tired of sports? I’m weary from hearing about the big contracts, the arrests, the health risks, the greed, the cheating, the sexual predators, the jealousy, the trades, the fantasy leagues, the ticket prices, the everything. I can’t remember the last time I sat through an entire sporting event, either in person or in front of the TV. (Maybe it was the Superbowl.) This from a man who was a faithful fan for decades. Now I’d rather pay bills. Is there something wrong with me … or with sports?
