This week I came across this tongue firmly implanted in cheek article titled “Pastor Quits Sports”. Here is why this pastor quit going to sporting events: 1. Every time I went they asked me for money. 2. The people with whom I had to sit didn’t seem very friendly. 3. The seats were too hard and not at all comfortable. 4. I went to many games but the coach never came to call on me. 5. The referee made a decision with which I could not agree. 6. Some games went into overtime and I was getting home late. 7. I suspected I was sitting with some hypocrites – they came to see their friends and what others were wearing rather than to watch the game. 8. The band played some numbers that I never heard before. 9. It seems the games were scheduled when I wanted to do other things. 10. I was taken to too many games by my parents when I was growing up. 11. I recently read a book on sports and I now feel that I know more than the coaches do anyhow. 12. I don’t want to take my children to any games because I want them to decide for themselves what sport they like best.
