Why do you love sports? Are you a fanatic? A fantasy manager? A degenerate gambler? Maybe all of the above? If you are any or all of those things, then the reason why you love sports is simple – you love sports for the sweat.
Many people grow up with dreams of playing professional sports. They want the money and the celebrity, but they also want the thrill that comes from competition. Unfortunately, most people are never able to realize this dream. They won’t get the money or the celebrity, at least not through sports. But that shouldn’t prevent them from enjoying the thrill that only sports can provide. You don’t have to be one of the players on the field to care deeply about which team wins and which team loses. Or maybe you don’t care about the teams themselves, but one of them has the star of your fantasy team. If all else fails, pick a team, bet a few bucks on them and you’ll start cheering like a diehard, lifelong fan.
It’s these three pillars on which the sweat is built – fandom, fantasy, and gambling – that this website will focus on. If you want an in-depth analysis of why a change in blocking scheme has improved a team’s offensive line play, then you’ve come to the wrong place. But if you want to kick back, relax, and enjoy sports for what they really are – entertainment, an outlet, a chance to recapture the thrill you felt playing sports growing up – then welcome to the sweat.
