How Do I Loathe Thee

By Cookie "Chainsaw" Randolph

Ever been watching a game on TV when a particular athlete comes on and you find yourself saying "I hate that guy"?

I contend you don't genuinely hate that guy. But you definitely "sport-hate" him.

Genuine hate is reserved for people like the bully who used to beat you up in school, and because you haven't had the opportunity to pity what an incredibly pathetic douchebag he grew up to be, you still hate him.

Or the dictator, terrorist or a-hole that wipes out a busload of innocent civilians and then offs himself (note to that type: off yourself first).

Granted, we sports fans...
