    My grandfather once summed up football this way: “They all run around, and then they all fall down.”

    I have never been able to look at the game the same way since.

    To each his own. Personally, golf and tennis are right up there with wet-paint spectating.

    And the Wisconsin lower classes get the pleasure of watching in an open air stadium smack dab in the middle of a Midwestern winter.

    A long time ago it was a routine for me to watch “Garfield Goose and Friends” every day from 5:00 to 5:45 PM. on WGN, Channel 9. In baseball season, the Chicago Cubs would occasionally pre-empt the show and I hated that. I was missing Clutch Cargo (and his pals, Spinner and Paddlefoot), Bucky and Lepito, and the umpteenth airing of Journey to the Beginning of Time! Not to mention interaction between the puppet characters.
    More than once I would simmer in powerless kid-rage at the rudeness and inconsideration of the Cubs. Jack Brickhouse seemed like a nice man, but I resented his part in the intrusion.
    I think somehow that I and many other frustrated kids put a curse on the Cubs, and it continues to this day. Forget that Billy-goat curse nonsense. It comes from kids prevented from watching Garfield Goose.
    Quick, what was the name of the theme music for that show?

    Haven’t watch an “American” football game since 1961, but participated in golf, running, rock climbing, swimming, hiking the back country, walking the dog, and getting outside, staying in relatively decent physical shape (despite physical disabilities catching up with age) for the five decades since.

    Those who retire from football are usually like the fans,overweight and out of shape “couch potatoes”.

    WATCHING that violence is also the perfect training, and brainwashing, for a population of chickenhawks, who accept wars, that don’t touch them, as “sports”.
