Editorial: Football In Full Swing

Many would argue that baseball is America’s game, but I’d beg to differ.

For nearly five months, this country is all about football – the sport that brings people together like no other.

There is also something about the game of football that can bring out the worst in people, as throughout the course of any given football game, it’s not unlikely to see a remote thrown or a tirade from your otherwise quiet and reserved friend or neighbor.

Yet I’d say that football for the most part brings out the best in Americans and that the pride we take in football is a great representation of how passionate sports fans are in this country. What other sport can draw 80,000 people on a Sunday afternoon?

And for these next five months, Sunday is a day to look forward to.

Welcome back, big screens, hot wings and fantasy teams – you were dearly missed.
