Die-hard sports fans may *act* like it's "no big deal" you don't like sports, but it's totally a big deal.

2. You're constantly asked, "Whaaaaaaat? Whyyyyyyyyy?!"

They're just not my thing, okay? It's not the end of the world or anything.

3. When you say where you live, you're usually asked, "Oh, so home of the ________?"

Yeah, I guess. And me. I live there, too.

4. You never want to watch a sports-themed movie on movie night.

Yeah, no thank you. I'll just catch up on my 50+ Netflix shows.

6. When people get on a roll about their team, you just have to smile and nod until they finally shut up.

Hey wanna hang out—oh, wait.

8. Your idea of a fun date isn't going to a game.

Just, why?

Ugh, is it over yet?
