What is the difference?

Why is it cool for guys to watch sports and be big sports nuts, but geeky or childish if they are big gamers and play video games.

They are both hobbies. Both with alot of useless trivia and info. Yet gamers are often looked down on more than sports fans.

Whats the difference? Isn't knowing the stats of some linebacker in 1967 just as geeky knowing what damage a magic widget can do?

  • I think it has to do with MACHISMO. Football is "manly" and playing pretend is not.

    It is ridiculous if you ask me.

    What I find HILARIOUS is the big fantasy football thing. I mean isn't it just like D&D for jocks?

  • My husband is both, actually, a gamer and a sports fanatic.

  • Gamers are a lot smarter and sports nuts you would never call them geek because they would kick your Ass!
