Just a good old fashioned RANT!

Professional sports are a joke, and I would like to propose a boycott of events. 

 I am so sick of these pampered overpayed athletes.  As a matter of fact I'm sick of ESPN just running everything in the ground.  Our country and it's citizens have more things to worry about other than what overpayed millionare the New York Yankees are going to lure in next.  We are in a recession thousands of people are losing their jobs, and they just keep cramming this garbage down our throats.  I don't care what CC Sabathia is wanting for a contract, or the fact that Manny Ramirez could muster up enough kahonies too turn down 25 million a year, too play baseball?  Is this where we are at in our society?  Some of my freinds said that I'm a "hater" because I don't  respect the fact that they are that good to deserve that kind of money.  I'm sorry, but no one is worth that kind of money, especially to play a game.  But it's our fault, we are the one's that go to the games and pay the rediculous prices to watch these pre-madonnas in action.  if I were a serious fan of a lower market baseball team, and they had a couple of good players that were having break out years, I would seriously wonder if they were playing too try and win, or just to get noticed and offered a huge contract by the Yankees.  Americans are'nt buying cars, they are losing their homes, and if they haven't lost their homes they are having trouble keeping the lights on and food on the table.  I'm scared for my fellow countrymen, but I could give a shit about the professional athlete, because they sure as shit don't give a damn about their fans!  Look I know its these guys goal to become a pro, but give me a break the fan is the one paying their contracts, and I think a lot of them forget that.  Love college though, all they need too do is fix this BCS shit, because its a monopoly in it's self.  GO CARDS!!!

Drop a line, I'm wondering if I'm the only one that feels this way about it.
