It’s your own 30 Plus Teams Tour and you and the girlfriends are so ready to attend that basketball / hockey /football or baseball game .
All of you put your money together and planned your vacations around the same time , not only to see the sights of Atlanta , Los Angeles , New York or Vancouver , Canada, but to see your favorite team or teams play in person .
You all are so excited to be sitting close to the action , in seats that you all paid for , by the way , but wouldn’t you know it, there’s somebody who just had to be ” that guy ” and ruin the start of your 30 Plus Teams Tour of Miami .
It’s some gentleman and his friends who might not be drunk, and wouldn’t you know it, they’re sitting right behind you.
Instead of following the action that’s going on tight in front of you, guess who has their attention ?
That’s right, you and your besties .
“Hello ladies ! Would you look at these girls ? What do THEY know about sports?!”
If that wasn’t bad enough , this loudmouth and his friends have to add one more insult.
“They’re probably girlfriends of some of the players or else here to pick up one of the players. Why else would they be here?”
WHAT ? ??!!!!
Now before you allow some fool to ruin your 30 Plus Teams Tour of the Bay Area or anywhere else , think.
You all did come to see the Golden Gate Bridge , ride those cable cars all day and eat as much Asian food until you were full .
The real reason is because you all wanted to see a Golden State Warriors basketball game in person at the Oracle Arena in Oakland .
Yes, this is a travel blog but it’s also a sport’s blog and some folks didn’t read the memo that says women love sports just as much as the men do.
In this case , though, what do you do if some ignoramus , drunk or not, tries to mess up your wonderful 30 Plus Teams Tour of Phoenix , Nashville , or Montreal ?
Act like you’ve been there before , ladies even if some people chose to ignore that memo.
Should you call security and have these fools taken out?
You say that you’d like to handle the situation yourself by dumping that $8.50 beer over his head.
No, remember , he’s already possibly drunk and why would you want a good cup of beer to go to waste?
Besides, , you don’t want the highlight of your New York Yankees versus Boston Red Sox baseball game to be remembered for you all getting thrown out of Fenway Park, do you ?
That’s just what’s going to happen .
Do what I do when I go to a game.
DAZZLE THEM WITH YOUR SPORTS KNOWLEDGE!
That’s right , know those stats on your favorite player or team because it’s obvious that Rowdy Randy and his entourage in section 10 didn’t notice the football , hockey , baseball , or basketball jerseys that you all are wearing .
You all aren’t fraud fans.
You’re here to cheer for your team, regardless if they’re the home or away team .
Where is it written down in the Sports Lover’s Handbook that only guys should be fans and know Sports ?
News flash, guys.
We’re going to cheer for Sidney Crosby , Dak Prescott , Chris Paul and Bryce Harper, just like you do.
Yeah, we might even lose our ever minds and yell at the referees and umpires if we disagree with a call they made on our team .
Some of us even plan our vacations around a sporting event , because that’s what a 30 Plus Teams Tour is all about .
You say that we should stick to something that we should know about , like shopping .
HA HA, you’re also a comedian now, aren’t you ?
Guess what , when we go to Victoria ‘ s Secret or that Michael Kors Store at Patriots Place in Foxboro , Massachusetts , guess where our next stop is going to be on our 30 Plus Teams Tour of Boston ?
That’s right , it’s going to be right across the plaza to the New England Patriots Pro Shop because SOME BODY left her Tom Brady jersey back home and she needs a new one to wear to the Patriots’ game on Sunday afternoon .
Excuse me, what did you just say?
Oh, that we only look at the players because “They’re Cute”?
Oh, no you didn’t !
You didn’t have to take it there .
Have you ever seen hockey players during playoff time?
Beards everywhere and some of them ain’t so cute, just saying .
So stop with the cute thing, bro, really, stop it.
Some of us have been fans BEFORE some of you were born and we’re not going to stop now just because some of you have a major problem with it.
We do notice if a player just happens to be cute, but we’re women, that’s how some of us roll.
But that isn’t the only reason we like somebody like Clay Matthews of the Green Bay Packers .
We talk smack about sports on Social Media with the girls AND our guy friends who have no problem with us liking Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks .
We’d rather talk about how we love LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers basketball team all day than talk about some actor that we’ve never heard of or could care less about .
So the next time you’re on your own 30 Plus Teams Tour , do what the guys do- act like you’ve been there , done that , and gotten the t-shirts , no matter what team you root for .
