I am an avid NFL football fan. Not college football, not high school football, but the pros, the NFL. That is until now. It seems that when the NFL talks made headlines, and I read the demands of both sides I had trouble digesting the controversy. I was befuddled, disillusioned. Millionaires against billionaires. All this in the midst of people struggling against each other for benefits, taxes, their homes and their future. Regardless of where you stand on the social / economic / political continuum, it's been an earth shaking couple of years, and there's no end in site.
I started to wonder if my Sunday mornings, noon's and nights might be better spent talking with my kids, eating brunch with my wife or even taking a walk in the garden and smelling the roses. Now that the talks are over and the pre-season is heating up, for some reason I remain limp and unexcited about the fall debut of my favorite sport, the best sport in the entire universe. My question is simple: Is anyone else feeling this sense of apathy of the pending NFL season or is it just me?
