What can I say? I'm not the biggest sports fan and have been known to put my foot in my mouth while stupidly pretending to talk the lingo. If you're a big sports fan, is it a huge turn-off for you when your mate asks you something silly like, "How many yards do you need for a first down? Okay, so 10 yards? Then how many times do you get to keep doing that till you get to the end zone?"
While I love playing and watching tennis, I have trouble faking an interest in any major league sport like football, baseball or basketball; let alone memorizing all those crazy stats! Yeesh, I have trouble enough getting through helping my daughter with her 5th grade math homework and trying to regurgitate from my old brain, the difference between a prime and composite number!! Whose got time for Sports Center?
So, I digress, do sports fans find this annoying in a mate?
