Jim Caple is a douche

Jim Caple just put a list together of the 101 places any and all sports fan must visit before they die. I must say, the effort was well intended, but the results prove that Jim Caple is a douche.

First let me point out some of the 10 places he tells us not to go:

2. NFL exhibition games. Why would anyone willingly buy tickets at full price for meaningless games in which the main objective is to play the starters only long enough not to get them hurt? The answer: No one. Which is why teams require that their season-ticket holders buy tickets for these miserable games

4. Baseball old-timers game. The desire to see your favorite player on the field again is understandable, but don’t give in to the temptation. There is nothing worse than seeing a former hero so fat and out of shape that he can’t bend over, let alone bend over to scoop up a grounder

5. Pro Bowl. If you want to go to Hawaii, just go. No need to mix in your vacation with a game that not even the players chosen to play want to attend.

6. World Series of Poker. Poker is not a sport. It’s gambling. And your money isn’t on the line, so why would you care?

7. WWE. Real sports don’t need scripts.

So those are his arguments, to sum up we should avoid:

  • meaningless games
  • places you will see old athletes
  • games in Hawaii
  • Fake sports
  • Sports with script

I agree with him. 100%, but i dont write a list of must see places that include:

  • Spring training
  • Hall of Fame induction
  • Tailgating in the SEC
  • Baseball All-Star Game
  • Maui Invitational
  • Midnight Madness
  • Camp out for tickets
  • Hot dog eating championship
  • A Harlem Globetrotters game
  • Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show

Lets take these one by one

Spring training: Why would anyone willingly buy tickets at full price for meaningless games in which the main objective is to play the starters only long enough not to get them hurt? The answer: No one. Which is why teams require that their season-ticket holders buy tickets for these miserable games

Hall of Fame induction The desire to see your favorite player on the field again is understandable, but don’t give in to the temptation. There is nothing worse than seeing a former hero so fat and out of shape that he can’t bend over, let alone bend over to scoop up a grounder…or…Hall of fame induction is not a sport. It’s gambling.

Maui Invitational If you want to go to Hawaii, just go. No need to mix in your vacation with a game that not even the players chosen to play want to attend. Midnight Madness is not a sport.
