Listen, I have nothing against sports. I mean, it’s something to do other than shop so their cool. Oh and during the commercials you can online shop so really it doesn’t even stop me from shopping. I don’t get the rules, never remember names of players and don’t understand the difference between offense and defense. However, I know when to cheer. I know when to get royally mad about something while yelling at the referees. I got the basics down. However, this NBA preplayoffs/playoff/finals/notfinals/semifinalsfinals/finals madness that has been happening this last month has got to stop.
Seriously. It has got to stop. Why? Because games that literally have 25 seconds left take 25-35 minutes to play. If I was given 25 seconds in a store I can guarantee you that I would not take 25 minutes to leave. I don’t understand how it is just totally accepted that although the game has less than a minute left it’s cool to have that minute last for nearly an hour. It’s NOT COOL NBA PEOPLE. I WANT TO BE ABLE TO WATCH MY GUILTY PLEASURE TV. JUST MAKE 25 SECONDS LAST 25 SECONDS.
Oh and I’d like to address one more freaking thing. If you, especially DirectTV, buy a ton of ads for these games, can you for the love of God make it not be the same commercial. Over and over again. STOP. Your ads are awful. I have to see them every single commercial break. STAWP.
P.S. I am obligated by the secret convention of awesome girlfriends to say “Go Spurs!” because it’s Andrew’s favorite team. That and our first dog is getting named Tim Duncan after their star player.
P.S. You can still vote for me here! Just vote “D” in a comment!
