Sleepless in Seattle vs Football

Dear Internet,
Today I watched Sleepless in Seattle while the Super Bowl was on. When it was over I turned the football game on in the 3rd quarter. Dave came over to watch with me. I just can't put myself through 4 hours of gladiator nonsense....... 11 man Roman squads of suicidal warriors. It is a dumb sport. Unlike Baseball which is nonviolent or basketball less violent, football is a senseless skill less bloodsport like professional wrestling.
But the 3rd quarter of any football game proves to be the best time to watch and not be assaulted. I am too much of a romantic for a game that leaves most of its players invalids or with brain injuries.

I agree Jann. It is no wonder some high schools are not allowing football teams and opting for soccer instead. Football is too much of a liability/insurance risk. I guess the ignorant masses still glorify football and war... two needless activities, imo.

Btw, like gladiator warfare, there is skill involved. However, like poking oneself in the eye with a fork, these are skills we do not need to hone.
