If You Wear XL T-Shirts And Shorts, You're The Woman Of My Dreams

Enough with the war on comfort!

Comfortable can be sexy, simply put.

For some reason there are people complaining out there about the Southern college trend that has been happening the past few years: big t-shirts and shorts, also known as the "srat uniform." There seems to be a clash between the girls who dress "nice" most of the time and girls who dress for comfort. As a guy, I don't see what the big deal is?

For college in the South, there are two reasons to dress up: college football (Roll Tide) and date parties. Any other time, you can find a majority of the female population in shorts and a big t-shirt that makes it look like they're not wearing pants. As a man, I personally don't see anything wrong with this. I love being comfortable as much as the next person, and most guys find the baggy t-shirt and shorts outfit to be cute. There's always a time and place for dresses and rompers.

But for all the haters out there that call these girls in XL t-shirts and shorts lazy, you've got it all wrong.

There are 4 reasons why the girls who don the "srat uniform" have it all figured out.

1. Girls have it rough.

See, it's tough being a girl. I don't know from experience, but I hear it enough and I've seen it enough to know it's true. When girls aren't dealing with f***boys, periods or having to do their hair and makeup routinely, they are being overly criticized by our society. I think society owes girls a break, and that break comes in the comfortable baggy t-shirt and shorts.

2. Southern Not-So-Comfort(able) weather.

Also, for all of the haters, maybe y'all haven't noticed that it's hotter than Satan's balls in the South! Tight, dressy outfits and pants constrict the body and cause you to sweat. I'd rather see a dry girl in a baggy t-shirt than a girl drenched in sweat trying to look cute with her outfit.

3. Perfect doesn't exist.

It's admirable when a girl can unapologetically be herself. A girl in an XL t-shirt and shorts is a girl that is saying "yes, I may have just rolled out of bed and brushed my hair, but I'm here dammit." Social media tells us we all have to be the dolled up, most "perfect" version of ourselves all the time, so it's nice to experience that reality check.

4. Guys think it's cute, regardless.

9 times out of 10, guys in college do not care what you're wearing. Trust me, we aren't doing much better. You could probably put on a garbage bag and we still think you're cute. Any guy that dates a girl that dates a girl only because she dresses nicely all of the time is a shallow man. You're cute, you're comfortable, and that makes for a much better vibe. We all win.

So, in the battle of dressing "nice" and dressing comfortable, I think that the girls who wear an XL t-shirt and shorts chalk up a win in my record book. No, I'm not bashing on girls who have a true sense of style and wear nice clothing... that's a great thing in itself! But, this is college and there are more important things to focus on besides what we're wearing.

Ladies, wear your srat uniform with pride. Some us think it's cute :)

*I want to thank the beautiful ladies at the University of Alabama for inspiring this article.*

Golf Actually Is A Sport, Sorry Not Sorry

why people don't see it as a sport and reasons why they should

From the early 15th century, golf has been an activity that has stood the test of time and is one of the most widely played casual games in the world.

Golf began in Scotland in 1457, where it was initially banned for being a distraction to military personnel. The game has evolved from the leisure activity it is to one of the most publicized sports in the world, with its own TV network. Professional golfers make anywhere between $6,000 to $6,000,000 dollars on a tour, which is nothing to shake a club at.

Though we may automatically think of golf as a sport, golf is still not recognized as much as it could be. As a member of the women's golf team at my former high school, golf was NOT considered a sport and I was required to take 2 physical education classes compared to the 1 that other high school athletes had to take. The Olympic committee JUST reinstated golf to the Tokyo 2020 games, making this the 2nd time that golf has EVER been a part of the games. So why is golf in limbo when it comes to talking about sports?

1. Golf seems to fit more into the "game" category than the "sport" category:

Golf has long been a game of skill and chance as well as a single person activity, while most sports are team sports where chance does not come into play nearly as often.

2. Golf activity is not as rigorous as other sports.

Golfing is not typically an activity that gets the blood pumping unless you're running from geese or gators on the fairway. The average golfer burns around 300 calories per hour while playing, assuming they walk the course. Compare this to soccer, where the players burn an average of 900 calories per game.

3. Golf does not require a defense against an opponent:

This point is questionable. Though it is true that golf has often been considered a game against one's self, golf can be played against another person or a team. High school and college teams compete against one another all the time.

The above 3 points are those that challenge whether golf should be considered a sport or not. I believe golf is definitely a sport and I'll give you 3 reasons why you should think so too.

1. Golf matches the definition of a sport:

Websters defines a sport as "physical activity engaged in for pleasure". I can attest that golf is definitely a pleasurable activity and can definitely be physically engaging. Walking 18 holes with a bag of clubs is definitely a workout.

2. Golf requires muscle coordination and hand-eye coordination

You'd be surprised just how much strength it takes to get the ball out into the fairway. Muscle strains and injuries are common in big hitters and in regular golfers trying to increase their drive distance. Hand-eye coordination is also key in getting that dimpled ball off the tee.

3. Golf has commonalities with many other sports:

Golf has a huge following, its own TV network, tournaments all over the world, and hundreds of world-champion athletes who bring home the BIG BUCKS. This is no different than all the big names in baseball, basketball, and football. Golf is just as strict as other sports with drug-policies and game rules.

The next time dad or grandpa turns on the golf channel, I challenge you to sit and watch a couple holes. Golf is more interesting that you may think. It's not just some game where you hit a ball around and get it into the hole. Golf is a game of skill and chance, with its fair share of drama, triumphs, and amazing instant replays.
