When Men Play Sports

When men play sports, it doesn't matter who you are, where you come from, what you believe in, what you think about the other players' personal lives, who they fuck and don't fuck—when men play sports, none of that shit matters.

Sports is a place where men can play like boys having fun on a summer day. Remember what it was like when you were a kid? A bunch of boys met up, then dreamed up something to do, like shoot hoops or play horse, toss the Frisbee, play catch with the baseball in one kid's hand. Or maybe somebody just got a new football and wanted to try it out. Somehow, someway, you and the neighborhood kids figured out a way to have fun doing something physical.

One of my dreams: knowing a group of guys who wanna be boys again and play sports, not for pro contracts, athletic supremacy or world domination. The idea is figuring out ways to be athletic, not even necessarily playing games, just playing around, which is a great way to get exercise (like a healthy active kid!) This is how I work out and I'm having more fun than I ever did in a gym.

The only gym we really need is the world and our imagination. No talent or skill level required, just balls and sweat!
