Things in sports you are just plain tired of

    One of the great joys of following sports is seeing something (an exciting play, a new record, an unusual circumstance) that you've never seen before.

    Which is why these things turn me off:

    - replays of LeBron James resin toss

    - the "championship hat and t-shirt" crew that don't let a team celebrate a championship for a minute before enlisting them to sell gear.

    - coverage of the coaches shaking hands at midfield. Unless there is an implicit positive or negative relationship between coaches, what point does it serve?

    I'm tired of the polyturf studio gridiron where the boys will go to show us dopes how a play really works.

    * Brett Favre

    * The Yankees, Red Sox, Mets, Dodgers and Angels signing all the best free agents

    * The Dallas Cowboys being called "America's Team"

    * Kobe Bryant

    * The Los Angeles Lakers on TV every time there's a late NBA game on

    * Playoff games on the east coast that don't start until 9:10 p.m.

    People who hate winners for no good reason.
