Finally, we've been given what looks to be a good reality television show based on sports—Ball Boys.
No, I'm not talking about a reality show about the little kids that sit on the end of the NBA benches, the ones scurrying after yellow balls on the tennis court or anything even related to the matter.
This isn't going to be a show about some reality TV actress and her relationship and/or lack of relationship with a fringe sports figure, and this certainly isn't going to be pinning washed up superstars against normal people to see how they fare against each other in competition.
Let's be honest, all of those ideas are horrible.
Ball Boys, on the other hand, looks awesome. I highly suggest that you watch this trailer.
Sports fans want something real. We want something that we can relate to and something that draws out our inner fan.
There is nothing more real in sports than tradition—it's the one thing we all respect. This is what I think will make Ball Boys so great.
Instead of collecting, selling and trading junk off scrap heaps, they are dealing with some of the most unique and historic artifacts in sports.
Most of us had collectibles as kids and I don't know one legitimate fan that doesn't look in awe whenever one of the major trophy's is within their line of sight.
This is what we do, and Ball Boys has all of that and more.
From collector items to vintage pictures, autographs and sports memorabilia, this father-son pair collects it all and they are letting us, the fans, in for a closer look. Not only that, but there seems to be a plethora of sports talk and legitimate special guests.
If you're sick of celebrity housewives, dumb dating shows and scavenger hunts for rare items in dumpsters, I think Ball Boys may be just the show you're looking for.
