For most of us working stiffs, becoming a professional athlete would be a dream come true, but for actual professional athletes, playing sports is their day job.
And like any other day job, no matter how interesting and rewarding, there’s some downtime.
We fill that downtime in a variety of ways. Taking long lunches, but not long enough to get in trouble. Inventing reasons to wander around. Going to the bathroom just to wash your hands. And of course, screwing around on the Internet for hours on end.
Athletes have better jobs, so it’s only fitting that they have better ways to amuse themselves.
