Liam Neeson and I Share a Love for Sports


Why am I posting this clip of Liam Neeson on Sportscenter? Well A) It’s hilarious and B) it reminds me of the kinds of conversations I’m forced to have with my barber which usually go like:

Barber: So did you see the Tigers game last night?

Me: Yeah, that was…something.

Barber: Can you believe Verlander?

Me: Oh yeah, he was crazy.

Barber: Hard to believe that even happened!

Me: Yeah, that uh, one hit was uh, quite a hit.

In the video above, Neeson’s line about “celebrating athleticism” made be burst out laughing uncontrollably. Maybe when they said they were going to talk about football, he forgot what country he was in.

    Your conversation with your barber is exactly how I feel talking with anyone into sports. So I usually just drop some 90’s sports reference from when I was a kid and had a passing interest in a few professional sports.

    I feel like Neeson, my eyes aren’t even trained to pay attention to the action.

    -Did you see that play?!

    -No, I was focused on that guys weird hat in the front row.
