How can some people follow so many different sports and competitions?
In the past 6-7 years or so, I've noticed a large amount of people on the internet, mostly guys in their 20s-early 30s, who seem to follow a lot of different sports and competitions. As in, Europeans who watch several different football leagues and competitions and then also watch stuff like cycling, handball, futsal, ice hockey, F! racing, roller hockey, etc. Not always all of them, but you get what I mean. And in addition, some also watch the NBA and maybe also UFC.
Then there's also Americans/Canadians who follow European football in addition to their country's sports. And Australians who follow European football and maybe also an American sport or two in addition with sports that are big in Australia.
Now, I know many sports are seasonal, meaning many of them don't clash with each other in terms of schedules and time of the year they're played. But sports like football(soccer) and basketball have long seasons and lots of games, for example. And people who watch sports and competitions from the other side of the planet also have to either get up very early or go to bed pretty late to watch games.
And yes, I know that "following" doesn't necessarily mean watching every single match or event. I mean, I watch football/soccer but mostly my club(Benfica) and the Euros and World Cups these days. And I always miss games of those. I just don't have as much time or patience to watch a bunch of games every week anymore. So how can so many people follow a lot of sports throughout the year and in addition also have time to study, work, raise a family, play videogames, read books, etc? I'm not even criticising. In fact, I find it rather impressive. How can you master time management like that? And do you not need more than 4-5 hours of sleep per night or something?
