Yeah basically this. If you're so wildly passionate about cooking meth or whatever that you need to list it on your resume, by all means, but you're taking a needless risk. And it's dumb to assume that at a law firm with 1,000 attorneys the guy doing your OCI screener is a fair representative (good or bad) of how cool your coworkers are going to be.
Also, re sports, TCR is never list a sport if you can't have a good conversation about it. Saying you're into Dodger Baseball when you don't know, why, e.g., Andre Ethier is killing the team or Don Mattingly is a horrible manager is just bad form. It's a bit like saying you're fluent in Spanish when in actuality you just stumbled out a "Donde esta the biblioteca?" to a confused-looking drive-thru employee at a Taco Bell when you were drunk at 2 a.m.
