So I’m in the gym the other night. They have like 5 televisions in the Cardio Room. Normally they have a mixture of News and Sports on. The other night for the first time that I have seen there, they had on Mixed Martial Arts (Cage Fighting / UFC) event. For a couple of different reason I have never gotten into watching MMA. But that night at the gym – I did. After running I came back several times between sets and watched. In fact I found myself annoyed when I missed seeing the winner of one match that I saw the beginning of. As I drove home I thought back about why I was drawn back to see the fights. As I thought about it, the only honest answer I came to, I didn’t really like. I was rubber necking. Like driving down the road and seeing a car wreck ahead and slowing down as you pass to for no particular reason other then to see the mess. I know other people say they have good reason for enjoying watching the sport. Here are 3 view from a Marine Corp veteran, a former football coach / missionary and former Cage fighter.
How about you?
