Apparently, there are men out there who don't believe that female sports fans exist—as if you need testicles to understand games that children routinely play. One woman was being aggressively pursued via text by a guy (who she met on a dating app) trying to challenge her on her baseball knowledge, and she came back with the perfect response:

As this woman wrote in a letter to Uproxx:

When meeting or dating guys it’s common for them to attempt to quiz women to test if they “really” are sports fans. This guy was someone I met off of a dating app, we had started texting & he asked me that question. It seemed pretty condescending plus it was something SO basic it was kind of insulting. Instead of responding with the teams (first instinct) or ignoring, I decided to have a little fun. I love baseball & I love puns, so at the very least I knew I would make myself laugh. He STILL hasn’t responded. That said I don’t know if I would either at this point.

She's a knowledgeable baseball fan and a kickass punner. And that guy? He Sox. (Ok, she may be batter at baseball puns than I am.)
