(video) SPORTS VERSUS JUDGE JUDY
Why does John Cullum watch sports, and Emily Frankel watch Judge Judy?
Emily thinks sports help John relax-- gives him something to root for, to focus on that distracts him from his work, the same way Judge Judy does for her.
John disagrees. He thinks Emily enjoys Judge Judy because Judy is tough, and often, she's even overly mean. He quotes Judy-- "They don't have me here because I'm pretty. They have me here because I'm smart."
Emily admits that Judy inspires her, when she's working on her various projects, to be an ultra-honest, strong boss. John explains that watching sports doesn't relax him. He gets too deeply involved, too concerned about his team winning. If his team loses, it leaves him depressed.
