I unfortunately do not have TV. This has prevented me from viewing a complete college/pro football game. It has been a little heart wrenching to not see the incredible feats that are created on the gridiron live. Actually really depressing. Last Saturday, I was able to watch part of a few games and was reminded of how great the game of football is. The bone crushing hits, the incredibly accurate passes, the ridiculous runs, and the jaw dropping catches. These athletes are our gladiators, our super-heroes, and sometimes, our gods.
Saturday and Sunday are sacred days. These are the days when men go to battle, arrayed in different colors, boasting their pride on the chest and back. Eyes are filled with passion and intensity. The atmosphere is palpable. It creates a high that is as addictive as it is contagious. Filled with strategy and intellect, as well as brawn and fierceness, there is no substitute for football.
If you’re not a fan, or see where I am coming from, go on YouTube. Watch Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, Vince Young, Reggie Bush, Denard Robinson, Terrelle Pryor, Kellen Moore, Michael Vick, Chris Johnson, Brandon Graham, Brian Urlacher, Darrelle Revis, shoot just type in huge hit, amazing punt return, or anything like that. If you still don’t get it…. then make like Bobby Fisher and be gone!
