Low T? I highly recommend a good endocrinologist.
And I say that without any derogatory intent. I agree with you that some sports I enjoyed in previous decades have waned...and for the reasons stated. College football and the NBA are as corrupt as boxing.
I'd say I probably enjoy sports chat as much...or more...than sports itself.
I don't mind the NFL rules changes. But I dont' really feel invested as much in the Cowboys. They don't feel like MY TEAM. They feel like Jerry's team. It seems every week or two he'll do something to remind me that it's HIS TEAM and his alone. I didn't even bother to watch 4 or 5 games this past year, and that's very different than a decade ago.
