How To Sports Fan

This post will help you and your whole lineage of sports descendants after you be a better quality of sports fan. I was travelling a few weeks ago, as I’m prone to do. I was talking to a friend and our discussion took us to sports. We did what dudes do when we really want…

This is one situation where I wish I wasn’t right (see my Olympics post of last summer where I suggested he get a therapist to deal with the post-Olympic letdown). We saw this four years ago, and we’re seeing it again now. Phelps hasn’t quite learned to deal with his time outside of the swimming…
