I would posit that it is just due to your limited social frame of reference that you assume that there are a certain types of people who only strictly talk about either ideas, things or people. It seems like an entirely false and naive assumption.
I'm going to assume you're at uni. Perhaps you'll find as you move through life that it's possible to engage with people who you would look down upon with disdain for talking about football or the people in their lives with all sorts of odd ideas.
You seem to have an incredibly rigid and limited perspective of "types" of people.
I will concede that some people tend to talk about certain things but it's a massive massive generalisation.
I've had discussions with what you would probably consider typical idiots because they like to talk footy, but the discussions have ranged through all sorts of madness, ideas, life philosophies, people, sports etc etc
It's possible to have a discussion about the football scores that goes on to encompasses all sorts of abstract ideas and "interesting" topics, sometimes it's just nice to just relax with a pint and talk footy though.
I honestly hope you don't proceed through life assuming that because you overhear someone talking football(or god forbid the people they know!) in a spoons that they're somehow inferior or inherently less interesting as human beings.
What an awful lens to view the world through.
Sage for mildly drunken rambling.
