People who read "The New Yorker" also kind of know what sports are.

They learn about them at boarding school so they have something to talk about with the nanny's boyfriend, I assume.  (I don't know why I've got such a negative opinion about people who read The New Yorker.  After all, I read The New Yorker, but that's primarily for two reasons:

1.  Malcolm Gladwell writes for The New Yorker, but not often enough, and

2.  Angry Mommy articles sometimes appear in The New Yorker, but not often enough.)

(Also, I only began reading The New Yorker because it was the only magazine around one night while I waited in the ER for Sweetie to get done having her kidney stone.)

Anyhow, here's what The New Yorker readers think about sports this week:

Golf is funny:



 Although I'm not quite sure I get that one.  Is the caddy saying the guy doesn't have to think about it so much?  Is the joke in that the caddy used a decidely lowbrow, teenage monosyllable when golf is so hoity-toity?  Why is the caddy standing so close, anyway? 

Let's move on to:

Wrestling is for dumb people!



I assume that's what they're saying.  I don't know.  Again, I think the joke is lost on me.  If only I was an actual New Yorker it might make sense.  Is that Mixed Martial Tic-Tac-Toe?  I think it is. About which initially I thought "I would watch that" but then I remembered that Mixed Martial Arts is still Mixed Martial Arts, whether or not Tic Tac Toe is involved, and I'm opposed to Hobo Crotch Kicking being considered a "sport."

I think it's meant to be more pro wrestling, though.  So maybe the commentary is that both pro wrestling, and Tic Tac Toe are fake?

Being sophisticated is hard.
