Entries in football (7)
The game left me cold and feeling horrible, especially watching Bradley fall down or Kolb staring into space with a large patch of grass in the ear hole of his helmet. This is not entertainment, but savagery that plays with serious injuries and perhaps worst, human lives.
College football ceased being a pure amateur endeavor once colleges began receiving million dollar checks from TV networks and Bowl sponsors.These monetary windfalls are due to the blood, sweat and work put in by 18, 19 and 20 year old kids.
While I was musing about the upcoming NFL season the other day, I said to myself, "Self, you are really lucky to be a Philadelphia Eagles fan." Not only are they an organization that consistently makes good sense with their off field decisions, they provide you with excitement on the field too. And the best part about being an Eagles fan is that even if you talk sports with a fan of another NFL team, they bear no ill will, no animosity, no prejudice whatsoever toward Philly fans or our football team. I saw just how easy I had it as a fan of the Birds, compared to the hard time I would get if I liked another team, like say the Dallas Cowboys. And it was only after this realization that I came up with the great idea of writing a thank you letter to Eagles President Joe Banner for all the effort he puts into making the life of every Eagles fan so fun and carefree.
