Holdouts are always a big story during training camp. Star players, dissatisfied with their contracts, will sit out to try to force their team’s hand, and fans are pretty split on the approach. Some people think it’s selfish for a player to hold out. But staying home is often the best way for a player to light a fire under a team to get a new deal done.
The real fun begins when those three light beers you drank, for a mere $32, are done filtering through your kidneys. After waiting in line 20 minutes to pee, splashing through the puddle of urine and whatever filth is oozing out of the one overflowing toilet (have you ever pooped at a stadium when it wasn’t an emergency?) and sauntering up to the urinal, you get the privilege of standing next to that guy who wants to talk to you while your frightened, enlarged prostate is making the whole process that much more difficult.
While you’re standing in filth waiting to relieve yourself, you will miss a pick-six, a circus catch, or whatever the one absolute can’t-miss highlight it is that this game will feature. Not to worry — you can catch the replay on TV when you get home.
You could’ve seen that highlight in real time had you opted to save the money and watch the game from the comfort of your own home (where I’m assuming nobody pees on the floor). And you’d have an extra $400-$500 to bet on the games, which is not a huge waste of money, nope. — Ryan Van Bibber
