Football Days

As many of you know, I'm a big fan of football, and especially the NFL. I play in a fantasy football league with two divisions, 'Marky Mark' and 'Funky Bunch'. I've been the Marky Mark champion three years running, but I've never won the big game, the 'Paper Bowl'.

I'm also a Detroit Lions fan which has offered me little but frustration for the past 10 years or so, but seems to be turning around a bit this year. They're winning games, more games than their losing, and it's quite weird. Weird, but great.

So, the point is that I was browsing ESPN.com, and I found this essay about football, and about the love affair that our nation has with it. It's really quite a good bit of writing.
