Default Ridiculous and common misconceptions about sports

- Any time a team loses a down the stretch, it's a choke. If you blow a 15 point lead in the 2nd quarter, why isn't that labeled a choke? Teams go through spurts and droughts throughout the game, but all the emphasis is put on the ending

- People thinking that athletes and celebrities giving lots of money to charity = them being good people. "Oh, he's not a douche, he gave 2 million to blah blah blah".
Most charities are chosen and mandated by the teams they play for

- That you can't be a fan of a team unless you were born and raised in the general location of that teams stadium.
