Do you remember in college when intramural sports was like the thing to do? It gave you a reason to get a bunch of your bros together, usually get hammered before, during, and especially after the game, while letting you get a little exercise to avoid the dreaded Frosh 15.
Problem is, once you actually showed up to the field, you realized there were a bunch of different types of dudes you’d be either dominating or getting dominated by. There’s always guys who take it a bit too seriously, but everyone’s hope is they grow out of the phase once they’re mid to late-20′s. Problem is, some don’t, which is why you need to be careful when signing-up for a public sports league that you don’t fall into one of these categories.
The Old Guy
Poor dude. He swears he used to have it back in the day, but just can’t hack it anymore. He only got the invite to play because your team needed another guy to make it an even $20 buy-in for everyone.
He’s usually a coworker of the team captain, and though he takes it really seriously, tends to just enjoy the time away from his wife on a Thursday night. Those orange slices and postgame snacks, you better believe he picked ‘em up on his way to the field.
