Yeah, I played some football when I was a kid and really enjoyed it — linebacker, mostly. As I tell my kids, I loved gliding over the bodies, moving down the line and BAM!!! — hitting the runner emerging out of the line. Or, careening into the tight end on a slant: BAM!!! FUMBLE!!!
Anyways, I’ve never been much of a football fan — it’s way more fun to play than watch. I also remember people saying that football players are dumb, but that was never my experience. One of my teammates went on to West Point: There’s a nurse practitioner, a surgeon, one was an officer in the Marine Corps, another the head of the psychiatry department at a major university and one actually became a Postmaster!!! Yeah, that’s right… a Postmaster!
Well, here’s a video demonstrating that football players have a lot more going on upstairs than most people think. If I could find more examples of this sort of post-game coverage, I might be enticed to watch a little pro football.
