Reasons I stopped attending sporting events—

Take some of the most common excuses for not going to church and use them to stop attending sporting events, and here’s what you get-

* Every time I went, they asked me for money.

* The people I had to sit by didn’t seem very friendly.

* The seats were too hard and not comfortable at all.

* The coach never came to call on me.

* The referee made a decision with which I could not agree.

* I was sitting with some hypocrites—they came only to see what others were wearing.

* Some games went into overtime and I was late getting home.

* The band played some numbers that I had never heard before.

* The games were scheduled when I want to do other things.

* My parents took me to too many games when I was growing up.

* Since I read a book on sports, I feel that I know more than the coaches anyhow.

* I don’t want to take my children because I want them to choose for themselves what sport they like best.
