about

Sports are one of those things... There are plenty of geeks/nerds that are into sports. We are just aren't one of them.

The opening line is from an episode of the IT Crowd (Highly Recommended!)

Written during FAWM 2014

lyrics

Did you see that ludicrous display last night
Which one's the inning where they start to fight
So that’s a touchdown run - did I do that right?
I guess I’m supposed to know

So I’m not manly unless my footballs spin
I’ve got to know runs batted in
Why do they wear stuff on their shins
I guess I’m supposed to know

But I admit I don’t really care
I’ve tried real hard to sit and stare
But my mind wanders to places where
Pixels learn to fly

Football’s ok
Basketball's alright
I can stand to watch
But not every night

My arena's the basement
My weapon's a mouse
'Cause its video games
Inside this house

Fire up a level
Because I’m ready to go
Whether it’s FPS or MMO
Warp speed fast
Or take it slow
Yeah, that’s what I know

Forget about goals
Give me BFGs
And super sheep
With D O Ts
And tons of mana
For my hotkeys
That’s what I know

Yeah I admit
It can get weird
When grown men worry about levels cleared
But so is holding someone revered
For how fast they run

Football’s ok
Basketball's alright
I can stand to watch
But not every night

My arena's the basement
My weapon's a mouse
'Cause its video games
Inside this house

Baskets goals safety’s yeah they are all fine
But I’d rather not keep score in a blocky mine
I’d rather ride a chicken for a piece of heart
And learn things like up down up down A B start

Football’s ok
Basketball's alright
I can stand to watch
But not every night

My arena's the basement
My weapon's a mouse
'Cause its video games
Inside this house
