To be fair, I’d rather find $5 than have any of my (current) local sports teams win a championship. Actually I’d pay some decent money to ensure the Patriots never win another Super Bowl.

Peyton Manning sitting for the remainder of the game after beating Bree’s’ single season passing record by one yard is exactly why I am not a Peyton Manning fan.

Holy shit, Anderson Silva. UFC is such a blood sport. Gnarly bendy blood sport.
That sucked a lot and I’m super bummed, but you’re gonna watch American football and call out a freak leg injury in MMA as evidence that it’s a blood sport?
I wrote that last night after perusing Twitter and Facebook reactions to Silva’s injury. MMA is certainly not the only sport I would call blood sport. American football, hockey, boxing, MMA… we can keep going and list all the sports with violent aspects that certain audience members get off on. It’s classic cultural relativism. I’m fine with MMA just like I’m fine with fighting in hockey and hitting in football. I know there are fine grains to this, that we could go on and differentiate between the freak injuries and the consequences of acceptable conduct in whatever sport we’re talking about. That was a freak injury, but some people get a thrill out of that stuff in a bloodthirsty way and social media makes it really easy to observe and engage with that.
UFC is pretty much the only sport in the world that at least 50% of the participants are pretty much guaranteed to have some sort of gruesome injury at the end or a face that’s swollen to the size of a watermelon. I don’t think anyone would ever argue that the NFL is a safe sport and lacking in violence, and really the only safe sports that exist in the world are golf, curling, and bowling (watch out for that carpal tunnel though!)
Calling UFC a bloodsport is very accurate, because it’s the only sport you can win solely by shattering someone’s orbital bone.
