Kitties, the subject of today’s musings is “The Sports Dumb Hoomans Play”. The other day Mommie left to go do whatever hoomans do with their pitiful lives. She left the TV on and I decided to kill some time watching it. They were showing some kind of “great moments in sports” review. And you know, hooman sports just total baffle me. Consider this:
Football. Okay, for this sport, the hoomans split into two teams, and one team grabs an odd shaped ball thingy and start running around. The other team wastes a lot of energy trying to steal the odd shaped ball, even though there is no shrimpies or temptations inside this odd ball! This strange “game goes on for hours with NO NAP periods!!
Basketball. For this sport, the hoomans try to throw a ball (what is this obsession hoomans have with balls?) into a hoop suspended in air while running madly up and down the court. Why? I don’t have a clue. When a player actually put the ball through the hoop, all that happened was that they started running down to the other end. Just like that – they didn’t even stop to give the player who made points a scritch under the chin. At least in football, the other players spanked each other on the butts.
Baseball. I actually had hope for this game as it involves lots of stealing and spitting. With this sport, the hoomans take a small ball, which they throw in the air, and try to hit it with an impossibly small piece of wood. Why they do not try to use one of the many bigger pieces of wood around I do not know. After hitting the ball, they all start running around in a circle. Why do this? Again I haven’t a clue……..
Do your hoomans watch or worse still play any other strange sports?
My peeps don't watch such things on the television... thank goodness! What I've never understood with all these 'ball' games is, do all those people have only the one ball? I've got tonnes of balls for chasing & whatnot at my house. No need to be fightin' over 'em. purrs
I think maybe such sports would appeal more to the dogs. Just a thought.
Thank goodness my human only watches sport occasionally - she quite enjoys the tennis at Wimbledon but 2 weeks out of 52 is fairly acceptable on our boredom threshold. But football and rugby are silly who wants to run about in the mud and get knocked over or tackled - then there is the play acting and needing a rest having a bed type thing brought onto the pitch to carry you off - which of course means you get the first go at the only clean water available and with the TV sport presenters who have plenty to say but no sporting ability whatsoever!!

I live with Ichiro. What do you think?
There is also stupid dog sports!
They loves balls too!
Yeah, like Nellie said. Our humans had something on the tv where a person threw a ball over water and the stupid dog jumped in to get it. Sheesh! A cat wouldn't do that.

Our Mommy watches the football stuff, and she gets all upset and yells at the TV! Peeps are demented.
I have no idea about this sport thing. We have something called cricket which I thought was a nice insect you chewed! But no! It has a ball made of wood which they hit with a flat stick and then they run backwards and forwards hitting other sticks! It's all a bit strange and a waste of time, cos when they are out they are in and then they are out so they go in and someone else goes out who is then in???? I mean what the ....?
Geez, sports sound SO dumb! The humans here never watch those shows (my human's boyfriend is a musician, and apparently there is a fairly significant number of male musicians who are not sports fans). So I had NO idea what the deal was until you explained it, Sassy.
Our Beans don't watch sports much, but they do watch noisy cars whizzing around roads. How silly is that!
Try soccer (or, in some parts of the world 'football'). Still a kinda weird bean sport, but at least the players are running around kicking and swatting a ball.
Imagine it is a couple litters of kittens playing with a catnip ball, and it at least is watchable.
All my Human does is "walk" and she hardly even does that. She and Aggie & Wally & Madie's Dad wented for a 2.5 mile walk yesterday and you would have thought it was a freaking marathon. Whoa, there--WALKING!! Now there's a concept!
What I **really** don't get is swimming. Immersion in WATER? 'Nuff said. ::shudder::
Humans are SO weird!!
Sassy...this was by far the very BEST explanation of those odd happenings with humans I have ever hoped to see!!
