I like doing these blog tags, it’s a nice break from the type of things I’m normally writing. I have AK from Everything is Bad for You to thank for nominating me to do this one. Especially when I’m feeling a little under the weather and not particularly driven to write anything at the moment.
I feel kind of bad, I essentially inserted myself into the nominations when Pinkie of Pinkie’s Paradise covered this tag last week and it’s taken me this long to actually write mine in response. Maybe it hasn’t actually been that ling, but it feels like it.
The premise of this tag is to answer a bunch of questions regarding what I perceive to be an unpopular opinion. I found this tag pretty interesting conceptually for a couple of reasons. First off; there’s something weirdly appealing about watching people bucking the mainstream and having these unusual opinions on things most people see as a subjective truth.
Here in England, we’re on the cusp of the football season coming back and beating its way to a hasty conclusion. In our time apart, it’s given me a bit of time to think about my relationship with sport, and more specifically the culture that surrounds it. The big realisation I’ve made is that there’s is a big chunk of sport culture that I really just don’t like being around.
