Has anyone ever heard of sports-induced Tourette's Syndrome?
I usually joke about it, but my normally mild-mannered personality complete erodes when I'm playing soccer or watching my kids play soccer. I have to literally bite my tongue to keep from spewing profanity when people get too rough or play dirty. I am generally a good sport, but for some reason during intense soccer matches it's a HUGE struggle. Could this be due to excess testosterone production during strenuous physical activity? Sports-induced Tourette's? I'd love some insight because I do not want to be a bad sport, but sometimes it's hard to control myself. ) -:
Your classification is quite accurate as I believe that sports does not induce Tourette's syndrome, instead magnifies it's attendant symptoms (Tics) through the bodies reaction to the extreme physical activity.
This happens just the same way you breath heavily, cough heavily or sweat heavily. Your Tics and verbalizations get enhanced, and more noticeable.
If you play sports with people that know you well, then sportsmanship should not be an issue, and even if they do not, you still have to live your life.
Thanks! The Tourette's explanation is my personal joke, but I did start wondering about it. I'm usually so quiet and even-tempered so this whole soccer experience is weird. I do know my teams pretty well, so that's good. Knowing them actually helps me to try and behave much more than I feel compelled to when I'm playing!

While it is famous worldwide, soccer is low in the ranks of favorite televised sporting events by most. Why? Should soccer get more American publicity?

There are a lot of sports now but not all of them have time slots in ESPN. Of course Basketball and Football need their airtime, but I think some sports should have less airtime (like baseball and soccer) and some should have more airtime (like beach volleyball). What do you all...

Is Baseball a dying sport?I think yes. World Series ratings are down by 65% in the last 25 years. Same goes for the All Star Game. Fox had its worst year in ratings for their game of the week in 2012 (averaged a 2 share for 24 games). Don't let the local TV deals or fantasy leagues fool you.
