It is my hope and my honest effort to present this conspiracy theory from a respectful and mature perspective due to it's sensitive nature. The premise is quite simple and it has to do with the way in which points are scored during any kind of the world's most popular sporting matches. In golf it's easy to see that the objective is to make it into the hole. In basketball, the same thing takes place; and it's a reflection of humanity's drive to copulate.
In soccer (football for the rest of the world) the point is to shoot past the obstacle (goal keeper) in order to reach the inside of the box.
In rugby and American football it's even more simple. One's goal is to penetrate the imaginary wall of the endzone/ the goal line (the membrane) or the imaginary plane in order to put points on the board.
(What could be more symbolic of sexual intercourse than breaking the plane in order to score?)
I postulate that all sports, in some form or another, and humanity's adoration for sport itself, can be reduced to a symbolic or re-creation of the process of intercourse.
In the same way that theater attempts to imitate the emotional world of humanity and manifest it in the oustide world, so does sport attempt to manifest and symbolically recreate the act of sexual intercourse.
All perspectives, feelings, and rebuttals are welcome...

How do you explain Curling? On second thought, the person who curls the rock yells "hurry hard" an awful lot! How about baseball? Getting to second base, playing the field and a high hard one comes to mind. Hockey? He shoots and he scores right between the legs. Hey, you may have a point.

I was just thinking about this today!
You know what gave me the thought?
My ma was watching football, and I heard an announcer say,
"This rookie can't seem to get his hands on the balls"
Since I wasn't looking at the TV, I was able to decipher that comment and take it to, what I thought was an absurdity. Then again, maybe not. If you think about the phrases they use in sports,
"Big Shot" "Slam Dunk" "Score" "Goal" "Pitcher" "Catcher" "Home Run" "Kill (volleyball)"
It makes you wonder.
Could sports be so popular, because it's a kind of form of Hypnotic Suggestion?
I honestly was thinking about making a thread, but I was sure people were going to laugh at me for doing so. I hope they don't laugh at you, because I really did think of this today.
S&F for reading my mind.
