Sports; never going to understand.

I really don't understand sports. I never have.
Whenever someone starts telling me about it being a game of chance, it's a non-starter. The rules are designed to cover all eventualities. There's no action that's unaccounted for, and if by some miracle something unusual enough occurs that it's not covered in the rules, it's added pretty quickly.
I get that there's a clannish feeling of community among the fans, but really, if you had to talk about anything other than the game of choice, how connected are you? The players, getting paid stupidly huge salaries, for playing a game, barely tolerate you when they meet you. It's weird.
I get that I'm in the minority here, and I'm glad that people who don't share my interests have found something to do with their time, but every once in a while, you're world bleeds into mine, and I'm left wondering.
