I Sure Am Glad the NFL is Back
I've mentioned here before that at one time I was an NFL season ticket holder. So why did I give it up? Well, it was a combination of the skyrocketing ticket costs, the league's increasingly mediocre level of play, the media hype that has reached insane levels, the seemingly endless displays of superficial patriotism and the advertisements that bombard you continuously from the moment you set foot in the stadium...oh, and also so I don't have to ever again be in physical proximity to clueless idiots like the people who appear in the video above from opening weekend. Seriously, what a fucking freak show.
You want to know why America is going down the shitter? It's because people like these alleged adults are not only walking around free, but are actually allowed to vote. And remember, these are morons who are somehow still prosperous enough to be able to scrape together the cash to attend a ridiculously overpriced NFL game. Yep, instead of spending hundreds of dollars and battling the traffic and the crowds I spent much of this past Sunday afternoon napping on my couch and reading a book...and I'm a happier man for it.
But hey, fan stupidity isn't always grim. Sometimes, it's even good for a laugh:
