It is so silly that you call a sport in which men throw arround an egg with their arms:


foot-ball.

RE: The religion of football on its holiest day.
Well, it's approximately a "ball", and of the major American ball sports (baseball, football, basketball, golf, tennis, bowling -- and hockey if you want to extend the "ball" concept to a puck) -- it is the only one in which the "ball" is ever deliberately kicked. And it is kicked on a regular basis -- at least twice a game, and usually much more often than that. Games are often won or lost by the kicker. Hence, "football".

I rarely watch sports. I will not be watching the Super Bowl today. I do not even have a cable TV hook-up, so my TV is only good for watching DVDs. I think watching TV in general is a waste of time. This could be extended to any spectator activity.

However -- if you look at the big picture, especially as an atheist, everything we do is a waste of time. 50 or 100 years from now, it probably won't make much difference what you did with your life. A million years from now, it certainly won't. So, since we're wasting our time anyway, we might as well waste it doing something we enjoy doing. And some people enjoy watching sports. Different strokes for different folks, as they used to say back in the hippie 60s (when I was a wee lad)...

I agree with you, however , sports nuts are as bad as the religitards when it comes to talking to someone about their favorite ....insert interest.....

And for fucks sake, I wish the new aversion to having 10 TV sets in every bar would stop already, I have a set at home if I choose to watch anything and dont go out to sit and watch a TV. I go out to socialise and talk about other shit than what gets passed as entertainment here in the USofA. Angry

Jesus H Christ...I posted a silly photo, relax people.

I used to watch a LOT of football. In the last few years so many players retired or changed teams that I quit trying to keep up. I do like to watch Peyton Manning...so shoot me. I think he is a great quarterback.

I watch little TV and when I do watch it's usually in passing. Generally I am studying and will glance up at the TV now and then.

Those who aren't American, I don't understand soccer or some of the other sports that are more popular in other countries but that doesn't mean I feel the need to bash those sports. Is cricket played with fucking crickets for Christ's sake?

Now, everyone get out your Prozac, grind it up and snort it for faster effect. Fuck, what a bunch of grumps and whiners on here lately.
