The truth is, I kinda hate sports. Sometimes. You can call it what you want: “friendly competition,” “friendly rivalry,” and other “friendly” oxymoron you can think of. The point is, there is a winner who achieves glory and fame while the loser suffers through anguish, pain, and even humiliation.
Take this photo for instance:
Manuel Martinez is definitely one of the sexiest bearish shot putters out there. Seeing the painful effects of losing on such a model of perfection do sting me a bit. (And my libido wants to rudely interrupt that the above photo — I’m sorry, Mr. Martinez — is just smoking hot.)
I don’t think I can ever empathize about spending most of your life on something then fail at it when it mattered the most.
And as Manuel Martinez loses at the 12th IAAF World Indoor Championships in Valencia, the following American duo rose to become the dominant winners: Christian Cantwell and Reese Hoffa. And even though my personal favorite, Mr. Reese Hoffa, placed second to the woofy Christian Cantwell, you can still feel and taste the disappointment of not placing first.
