How do you get into sports?

All these fucking names, and records, and in jokes, etc. seem tedious
>>
It can seem a little overwhelming at first, but most of us have been interested in sports since we were kids. So it was a lot easier to absorb information.

Thanks to games like Madden, I was reciting the Tennessee roster by the time I was 9.

Why do you want to get into sports now?
>>
>>64529492
Just start watching games. You may not get shit at first but just keep doing it. Like one anon said, buy a vidya game and just play it. You will start to spot mistakes you make and learn the rules. Start learning whatever you can and just build on it.
>>
You start by following one team first or join a fantasy league.

They're literally kids games, they are not difficult to understand.

You don't. Watching other people play sports is a cuck hobby. The players don't even care what city they're in or what team their on, so why should you? They only care about their contracts.

This is what bandwagon millennials do. If you want to be a true sports fan, support your local team.

Because anime characters don't get a big undeserved paycheck

Well, I've been following football since I was 5 or 6 years old so it's pretty easy to pick up on names/records/jokes/etc. Started because my dad would watch football every sunday and I'd plop down next to him to watch. Even as a young child you're going to understand how the game works and who the players are/what they do after a season or two.
>>
Growing up a sports fan helps, I have a p good grasp of football because I would watch the Bears growing up, although I've drifted away from the NFL as I got older. Also, if you're in college, follow your schools sports teams. It's easy to get passionate about and it got me heavy into college football this past year. And as other anons have said, video games help. I'm starting to get more into the NBA just by playing 2k with my little brother.
>>
All you need to know is that the system is rigged so the Patriots and Alabama will win it all this year. Cap this post please.
>>
I always found American football to be very boring because the start and stop nature of the game. When I realized I could shitpost between every play on /sp/ I suddenly started loving the game
>>
I just got really into sports this year. My dad's been into them all his life so I knew all the rules of baseball, basketball, and hockey already. So I guess I got off pretty well, all I had to do was learn how teams were able to get into playoffs and whatnot. What took the most time was how college sports work, still trying to figure that out. I don't pay super close attention to the players' names and what their best skills are and other stuff like that, I just care about what looks interesting to me, like what my teams winning streak is and other simple things. That's probably the easiest route to take, at least it'll be enough information to start up conversations with people about.

Like hell im going to be a Pidgeons(Cardinals) fan.

I did this when I was ten, played NBA and NFL 2K on my dreamcast. Didn't start following mlb til later.
