The sports season is back! Football, soccer, cheerleading, field hockey, and everything else under the cool fall sun is back in season.
The other day I went to a high school football game and watched as the team made touch-down after touch-down. All of the fans on my side of the stadium were into the game rooting on for the home team. Accross the way were just a few fans cheering for the defense to step it up. Then there was a break in the yelling as half time came. A lot of people got up to buy hot dogs and sodas but the majority kept to their seats to watch a beautiful arrangement of uniformed high schoolers marching and playing a great arrangement. The team ended up winning, which was a first in a while. The crowd erupted into a loud cheer and then all left the staduim as the team went back into the locker room.
This makes me wonder. Why is everyone (stereotypically) obsessed with football?
