Based on a previous post
, Karen De Coster has mistaken me
for a "Friends
Let me assure the world that nothing could be further from the truth. My hatred for Friends
knows no limits. I firmly believe it is the worst television show ever, combining everything that is bad about both sitcoms and soap operas. Miss De Coster was absolutely correct in saying that it is "for morons." Its popularity certainly makes a sad statement about our culture. I am shocked that even some seemingly intelligent, educated adults can find this show at all funny or interesting.
Thus, I found Miss De Coster's statement about watching the Pistons game ironic, coming right after her entirely accurate comment about Friends
, given that pro team sports are played primarily by "morons," and enjoyed primarily by morons (but not exclusively, as Miss De Coster and others of my acquaintance prove).
Moderate sports fandom certainly isn't as bad as even casual Friends
watching, though. A person who finds Friends
even remotely entertaining is obviously of no use to me at all, whereas at least a few sports fans are mostly okay otherwise.
