I am watching pre-season football and my beloved wife goes "Yuck" and runs out of the room. She does not like football. I don't know why.
I like football. I like to watch the beginning and the end of games. The middle tends to get dull. In the beginning, I find out how competitive the team are, who will play well, and it sets the pattern for the rest of the game. I watch the end to find out who won and why. I see a recap of the best plays and the stupid mistakes. This game that I am watching is now in the middle and has reached the dull part. More repeat of what has gone on before. It's a strategy the teams use to pass the time, waiting until that time near the end to make their winning moves. Sooo, it's a good time to write one of these rants and to bring out the "sports is life" metaphor.
