At this point I want to interject what I call a “Dog Note” regarding most HUMANS when returning home to their dogs from a sports outing of any kind….or any trip for that matter…. cuz said HUMAN just simply has to tell their dog everything that they did on their outing or trip….and I mean every little detail….like how much it cost to go to the bathroom at Wimbledon or Ali vs Spinks II. Anyway, this returning home process is apparently a universal God Dog Law….that’s right, God Dog teaches all dogs when they are young…..to be very patient while sitting quietly and at least act like you are listening…..cuz all HUMANS are just made that way…..and they simply MUST tell those of us who are their dogs…..exactly what happened while they were gone……as it is just part of their “reporting back home” process…..cuz it is what it is.
Quite honestly, although I was at BD’s side for every game and every sports program that he watched over the past 115 years that I spent at his side…..which adds up to thousands of games….but it has only been within the last couple of years that I have fully understood sports (remember, I just got my Sportsphile accreditation last year)…..as I have often pondered why so many HUMANS are involved in the universe of sports….cuz sports ain’t that big in the dog world….oh, we have some professional level dogs….hunting, retrieving, racing, and even some frisbee catching types….along with many show dogs…..like Lassie, Rin Tin Tin, Benji, Old Yeller and Tramp…..just to name a few of my silver screen favorites…..but for most of us dogs…..we basically keep it simple….as we just eat, sleep, play, fool around when we come within several hundred yards of a bitch in heat….and lick ourselves where you HUMANS can’t. However, we dogs will let each of our HUMANS that God Dog sent us to live with to do the sports thing…..and as much and as often as they want to engage in those sports activities…..cuz when you get right down to it….HUMAN involvement in sports wears them out….helps them sleep better at night…..and allows them an enjoyable release of all or most of their internal anxieties. It is not unlike the approach that HUMANS take with their own kids….cuz as you HUMANS will remember….once their children’s tanks have run dry of energy….after a short period of disintegration has been completed…. comes peaceful sleep….aaahhh that wonderful quiet time. So, yep….we dogs not only like our HUMANS to be involved in sports….we actually encourage it…..I mean, why do you think we chase all those balls and things that you HUMANS throw….for I can tell you this.…it is not because you yell ”Fetch L E”….so, why do you think all dogs act so excited when our HUMANS pull out the leash to take us for a walk?…..cuz the truth is that we’re not the ones that need the walk. You get it don’t you?
And before I sign off on this post…I am of the opinion that if you like reading the my stories along with viewing our videos…then you will also enjoy photos of our sports memorabilia that I share with each post ….which means that you just might be a Sportsphile …especially if you display any of the following characteristics as follows:
****You yell at your TV when your team…the ref….or your coach….screws up.
**** You have lunch EVERY DAY as the closest sports bar
**** You are late to work because your game went 21 innings last night.
**** You shout GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAL when you reach that happy place sexually
**** You’re over 30 and you still collect baseball cards…or NBA….or NFL….get the point?
I truly believe there are tons of Sportsphiles out there…..so, one of these days, we will start a program that will test whether a person is a true Sportsphile or just a Wanna Be …..and we will come up with something of value worthy of testing the “knowledge and acumen” which is required to even be a Sportsphile….and you’ll love “the swag” that you receive for being an accredited Sportsphile.
