What being a sports addict is all about

You guys know what I am talking about. I am sure many of you have used the always-handy excuse of "I can't go the game is on," when someone is bugging you to go somewhere, or the wife wants to pressure you into taking her shopping. When you sit down for the day on your couch or sofa, nothing else is of higher importance to you than turning on the TV straight to ESPN to see what the day of sports had to offer. Top 10 plays, Web Gems, Fantasy Sports breakdown; we all live for it. When you click on your internet browser, the first page coming up is undoubtedly a sports site because you need to keep up with all of your fantasy teams and games. All through the day you are thinking about the big game coming up later that night and maybe you want to get something off of your chest about something a coach has done, or how a player has performed. You proceed to come right here to CBSSports and let others hear you out, and can't wait to see what others have to say about what has been on your mind. You think Bracketology should be a course offered in college and something you could get a degree for. (for you March Madness fanatics) Ticketmaster only serves one purpose, to get your seats for a game you can't wait to go to. When you get to that game it always feels like it's the first time you have gone, it never gets old. As long as you have your sports fix you are content with life. Now finish reading this blog I have written and go let the sporting world know what you think. If you are a sports addict, you will have enjoyed this article and realize that it's pretty much describing your life, and how much sports really mean to you.

R.E.S.P.E.C.T I Know What It SHOULD Mean To Me

That is how every Pirates fan should feel. From rediculous prices at the vendors in the stadium to the lackluster team that you are unfortunately a fan of, the average sports fan (or atleast a Pirates fan) should feel cheated. I know all of this first hand, being a Pittsburgh Pirates fan. Every year I am told that we have "promising young prospects" and that we will be a good team in the years to come. This is coming from management and owners of a team that hasn't had a winning season in over more than a decade and a half. And the Pirates wonder why they have under 10,000 fans buying tickets to a MAJOR LEAGUE sporting event. Call me crazy, but maybe it is high time for teams to start showing their fans some respect. Maybe they need to stop jacking up prices for the fans for everything they purchase and actually put the money of the fans to good use to save up and get a quality player, quit giving players that get everything but their clothes knocked off of them every outing they have (Matt Morris) 10 million dollar contracts, and finally, quit giving fans false hope. Do something about it Pirate management instead of saying you will. R.E.S.P.E.C.T., that is what it means to me.
