that being the case, the best option is to watch the weirdest shit you can find, which is likely curling

If you want to talk about a boring-ass game, we can talk baseball.
The Home Run > The 90 Minute Tie
The Bean Ball > The Flop
Swinging a bat > No hands allowed
I don't know why masses of points are so important. A tie means both teams were well matched and it kept your heart rate up. Watching teams get point after point is super boring because it means the game is easy.
Listen, you've the right to have your opinion on this and I respect that. I guess I just sort of feel sad for the life you'll miss watching this trash sport.
You're both watching something that amounts to the myth of Sisyphus. Nobody ever wins either sport. The counter gets reset at the end of the season.
You're right. A true sport should end with death.

Then the winning needs to die after. Otherwise, they may tarnish themselves post-victory. All lives should end at the moment of maximum triumph. That is Sport.

Curling is nineteen levels more boring than football(Nigel). A key part of the game is skill at a household chore.
