Escape From Reality

Rangers Ballpark Arlington, Texas

TV networks are flooded with these so-called “reality” and “voting” shows that are so terrible, we can’t stop watching.

I admit my fifth grade sense of humor takes pure enjoyment out of watching more of these shows than I’ll ever confess to watching. After multiple seasons of watching those shows where the viewers vote chooses the outcome, I believe that you should never trust a show that doesn’t show you the results.

I’ll explain- I struggle to trust that the winner is really chosen at the season finale. I’ve always questioned any show that prides themselves by claiming that “your vote” counts, but then they never actually tell you the scores of the votes. They just announce who is going home that week. If the show is based on “your vote” then show the real scores… just saying.

This is just another reason why I vote for sports. There’s a score that results in a win or a loss. The numbers are posted on huge jumbo-trons in ballparks, stadiums and arenas, TV screens, websites and announcers remind you play-by-play. There’s no results show where only the producers know the score (number of callers/voters) and then decide what “scores” they want to announce. In sports you see the score; you can hear the score and your butterflies and adrenalin rushes are reminders that you can feel the score.

The vote that really matters in America is deciding the team you will call your team. This is usually a vote that is cast early on in ones life and regardless weekly performances or the season record- you continue to support your team. Even when your team loses back-to-back World Series you still believe in next year.

So thank you sports gods for 162 days of baseball and 4,860 regular season games of Major League Baseball! Now that its baseball season again, there’s always something better on TV: baseball- a true escape from reality TV.
