|Formal attire and incest|
go hand in hand.
When you’re playing a recreational league softball game in the park and the game ends in a 2-2 tie, Eddie from your team comes up and says “A tie is like kissing your sister!” Why the hell do people say this? Tying should not be compared to incest. They’re kind of different. A tie or draw means you didn’t win or you didn’t lose. If you’re French kissing your sister, that’s gotta be considered losing. It doesn’t matter if she’s attractive, you’re doing something really wrong and there’s really no way to look on the bright side of that. You can always look on the bright side of a tie because you technically didn’t lose. Making out with your sister is not a win. This saying is even more ludicrous
these days with the World Cup going on. In the sport of soccer you have teams actually playing to tie. Ties are like kissing your dream girl in soccer. In soccer if Team A is up 1-0 and Team B scores to tie it, the commentator will actually say “Now let’s see, will team B try to win the game or hold on for the tie and the point?” Tying is so good in soccer that it makes winning OPTIONAL. It’s basically almost as good as winning and sometimes better because it prevents you from risking a loss by becoming overaggressive on offense. Tying is not like kissing your sister. Maybe it’s like kissing your cousin.
