I love sports but...


I love sports and any show about sports. But there's a phrase that's plaguing the writers, broadcasters and fans;

"At the end of the day."


I really hate this phrase.


To me, it is lazily used as to fill out the space and/or time;

"The Team A can beat Team B by means of a, b, and c. But AT THE END OF THE DAY, reason d will be the factor in defeating Team B."
I guess it doesn't sound so bad but it's also often used as a subtle fuck you in conversation;

SportsGuy: "Yeah, those are great points and yada yada yada 'some stats' yada yada yada 'more unnecessary stats' yada yada yada, but AT THE END OF THE DAY, it's whomever can pressure the quarterback the most, wins the game."


Anyhow, AT THE END OF THE DAY, it's the player's determination to win the match, not how much fur-ball you can hack with your golf club.
