It’s that time of year, unfortunately

This headline from Fresh Loaf sums up the mindset of the local sports fan.

Ben’s Sports Take: Braves flounder, but fear not…it’s football season

I find myself more annoyed by football’s return this year than ever before. It’s like a four-month long Montgomery Gentry concert. The sport’s okay (though is anything more boring than the five hours of “Sunday Night Football”?) — it’s the hype I can’t stand.

    You hit the nail on the head. It’s all the hype that I can’t take. Football used to be a sport, now it’s an event. And you don’t really need an attention span to watch. If someone could post a link to Tom Boswell’s article describing why baseball is better than football that would sum it up for me.
