Like the mouth breather in first period that sits behind you, kicking your chair, some sports stories just won’t stop infecting our news feeds. In 2017, LaVar Ball’s non-stop assault on sports fans with his bizarre antics had spectators in constant SMH mode. This year also saw the return of Tim Tebow, and the media following his every move. Tebow has the media believing that hitting a home run in minor league baseball is some kind of divine miracle. What annoyed you more? 🏀

Whether it’s saying mildly racist things or shamelessly plugging his brand, LaVar Ball and his ridiculous opinions have been shoved down our throat ad naseumwhether we want it or not. People love him. People love to hate him. He’s the perfect mule for clicks and engagement, so anytime he breathes a semi-worthy take, fans get bombarded from all angles. At least with Tebow, there may be an expiration date soon. But LaVar’s son, Lonzo, is looking like a future NBA star, so fans will have to endure this guy for a while.

After Tim Tebow was basically iced out of football, we thought it was finally the end of the media’s love affair with the former Florida Gator. But here we are again, talking about how Tebow fancies himself a baseball player. Every swing demands national attention, and every home run gets effusive praise. If that wasn’t enough, we have legion of fans defending his honor no matter how slight the criticism (R.I.P. our mentionsafter saying he’s annoying, probably).
