Top 10 Sports Games Guys Refuse To Miss

Top 10 Sports Games Guys Refuse To Miss

I enjoy a good beer and a great college basketball game. College basketball is my favorite sport to watch. It is my favorite thing to do from November till the championship game in April. It's the rivalry, the buzzer beater shots and feeling like you can coach the team better than the actual coach who gets paid millions to do the job.

On occasion, I will watch a college football game but having 3 brothers and being raised on a farm led me to be that girl who screams at the T.V. Screen during a game. But I never really got into sports passed a collegiate level. There are many women who do. However, men are wired to watch every sporting event known in the Guinness book of world records. Ask a man to remember your birthday, your anniversary or where he parked his car at work. He can't tell you. Ask him who won the Super Bowl in 1981, words of sports knowledge spue from his lips like a Molecular Biology professor. He probably didn't watch the game or wasn't even born, but he can recall who played on the team and scored the winning touchdown.
