Men Don’t Watch Men Play Softball [NoeBrainer]

Men shouldn’t watch their male friends play softball unless female or monetary reasons are involved.  Right or wrong?  Freakin true.

There are some things in life that are simply unmanly.  Watching the Lifetime channel.  Crying while watching “The Little Mermaid” for the eighth time in a row.  Being a man and cheering for your male friends as they play softball. 

I was asked by a few friends of mine in the Capital Region who shall remain nameless (Mike Zanchelli and Mike Duker) if I would come out to watch their softball team.  I looked at them and simply said, “No.  Absolutely not.  Never.  Ain’t Happenin.  Fugeddaboudit.” 

I’m not coming out to cheer them on.  I’m not a cheerleader.  I’m a man who can participate instead of just watching.  I’m not going to grab pom poms.  I’ll grab a mitt and a bat and participate, but rooting for them in person simply will not happen.  This should be a man law; men don’t watch other men play softball.  I think this needs to be implemented into man law immediately.
