Czabe compares the lack of sports to oil in the engine of your car. You need oil in order for your engine to run smoothly and properly. Talking about sports is the oil to casual conversations with other people, whether you see them in the grocery store or you’re talking to your cart mate while playing golf. Sports is what makes conversations flow for most people, especially men. Now without sports for almost 90 days now, conversations are flowing like gears grinding metal on metal. Until sports return people are going to continue to have a hard time carrying a conversation.
