1: Phone service is out where I live, meaning so is the DSL, until further notice.
2: A pipe burst in the unit above mine. Thankfully, my room was spared the worst of it and I have somewhere to stay for the immediate future.

a really-substantial portion of anti-sports sentiment is a traumatic response to the forms of gender violence and gendered judgment that are delivered most directly through childhood sports and physical education.
another substantial portion is a traumatic response to having your body destroyed by unsafe sports and getting dropped like a hot potato by your life's dream and the people you spent the most time with.
another substantial portion, at least in the U.S., is resentment that your education was drastically underfunded and stripped of all creative programs in favor of funding sports programs and building sports facilities.
there's nothing wrong with enjoying sports! your hobby is fine. but please try to keep a little bit of perspective, and bear criticism of sports — even inane or over-vehement — with magnanimity. not everyone *gets* to have any positive association with sports at all.
