Football and Philosophy

I have a confession to make...I love watching football.

I know that doesn't sound all that crazy as a confession, especially on SuperBowl Sunday, but hey, I've been kind of in the closet about this for quite awhile. I don't come from a family of football lovers, my friends don't generally watch a lot of football, I don't get invited to big football parties, and I rarely go to games.

But, secretly, deep, deep down somewhere in my soul, watching football makes me happy.

I love the tension and the energy and the crowds and the excitement. I love it when a great team comes together and everything just seems to flow like magic. I love the sweat and the pain and the hot hotties wearing tight pants!

But most of all, I love the passion these men bring to the game. They throw themselves into the game so completely. Their bodies fly into a pileup, they jump to catch a pass, they wrestle their way into the end zone for a touchdown. It's like sometimes they forget they are mortal and push their bodies past what seems humanly possible.

I only wish I could throw myself into something as passionately as they play the game.

Okay, so that might sound a little bit deep for football. But there you go. It's Superblog Sunday in Salem, Oregon, and I thought it was the perfect time to come out of the closet as a football lover.

So, now you know. Don't tell anybody, though, okay?

I think one of the highlights of the day was listening to Gino quote you about the tight pants and hot bodies on the field. Very great!

That was pretty hilarious! I would have made it racier if I'd known he would read it out loud. :)

I like watching football too. Same situation. I'm not a big NFL fan or anything. I just like watching it on TV.

"I love the sweat and the pain and the hot hotties wearing tight pants!" This line needs to somehow be made into a T-shirt.

Not to mention the soapy showers.

Well, Mike, I don't know much about the soapy showers...I guess that's what takes so long in the locker rooms, huh? :)

Mister Critic - Maybe I just make up T-Shirts from my blog quotes and sell them on the side. LOL. Maybe I'll get rich.
