Re: How can some people follow so many different sports and competitions?
Anyway, following sports is no different than any other hobby. It’s up to the individual to decide how much time they want to dedicate to it. I used to follow all my teams closely, but now that I have jobs and kids and a girlfriend and friends, I really don’t stay on top of it anymore. I watch every Dolphins game, but I don’t start watching the NBA or NHL until the playoffs, and I’ve given up on baseball, the UFC, boxing, golf, and everything else.
That was just a joke, we do have the Pirates. They are, however, a laughingstock with an owner who has made it clear he has no interest in putting a winner on the field. I won't give them any of my money, and judging by the shrinking attendance numbers, the city is getting sick of it. They set a professional sports record of 20 consecutive losing seasons starting in 93. They finally made it back to the playoffs a few years ago, but never made it past the wild card. Now all they do is cut payroll.
But I'm with you on your other point. I have a son now and don't have as much time as I had before. The Penguins play most of their games at night, so I can watch them when he goes to bed. I can't watch the west coast games, as I have to be up at 4am for work.
