Video Gaming vs. Professional Sports on TV 
A common complaint I hear from parents is that their kids spend too much time in front of a PC or their smartphones playing video or computer games. I agree. But it dawns on me that many parents are being hypocritical. I mean, if you are the parent and you are a big TV watcher or you watch pro sports, and actually care about who wins that pro sports game, then you might not be any better than your kid who plays video games. I think computer and video games are a total waste of time.
I think professional sports are a total waste of time. I know anything on TV is a waste of time… Hand held games are this generation’s “TV.”
An even bigger waste of time is politics, where “kabuki theater” and sports are combined to steal trillions from productive citizens.
