Going by this terminology, sports nerds are the players, plus the coaches, assistant coaches, all those people involved with making the sport possible. And the amateurs who go out and play, too.
I'm not suggesting "fake geek girl" because I think that whole idea is stupid and mean-spirited. But I was genuinely surprised at how different the definition of geek and nerd had become from my formative years for someone to so casually identify themselves as such. I never asked her why she considered herself a nerd, because it seemed to close to the whole fake geek girl issue and I didn't want to be exclusionary. But it was obviously a dramatically different reason from my own self label.
Yeah, I stopped reading when I got to all those graphs too. It just seemed to be saying "Look how smart I am! Everyone? Is everyone aware of how smart I am? Ok good".
