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.
