Gamers really just trade one pathetic hobby for another. Instead of screaming at the television over a false start penalty, they yell at a 14-year-old kid through a headset during a spirited, seven-hour-long Call of Duty session. Same thing, really. Sports fans eat wings and drink beer. Gamers IV Red Bull and scarf pizza. Sports fans are no more athletes than gamers are soldiers, spies, or suspender-adorned plumbers. We fight a lot because there's only one TV and you want to play Bioshock while we want to watch the Laker game. But when you get down to it, we're brothers in arms. Stop the hate.
