Why do we sacrifice our weekends, watching people run around after a ball?
I've been the one of the biggest sports fans ever, but I'm starting to re-think this.

It doesn't make any sense. We could be outdoors, fishing, hunting, hiking, etc. Both days.

Because you can do those things year round. Watching live professional or college football is limited just like crawfish season.

This virus and working from home has made me appreciate the outdoors. I go for walks, spend time at the beach, which is 10 minutes away. I am tan and in shape. Screw sitting on the couch.

Plenty of pics very tastefully done. She is not shy about it. You have to be part of the GMT thread every morning.

I’ve seen them. Was meant with sarcasm, guess my tone should have been changed a little!

Would it change your mind if you were able to spend thousands of dollars per year on tickets? What if the athletes you watch are multi-millionaires and constantly whine about being oppressed?

re: Why do we sacrifice our weekends, watching people run around after a ball?
Friend,

I have been preaching against college and professional sports for a decade. They are pointless distractions that are driven by Big Alcohol, lazy administrators and the multinational advertising cartel. I haven’t watch a minute of pro or college sport in five years because what does one benefit by watching grown men play a game?

Sports exist to give us recreation, teach excellence and teamwork, and provide individual discipline. Watching adults play achieves none of the noble ends of athletics. College and professional sports have become a vehicle to steal the lives and communities of Americans for the purpose of manipulating us into being paying customers and alcoholics.

Professional football, especially, is bad for America, having quietly over the last fifty years desecrated the Sabbath, insisting that Sunday is a day of football, not worship and family. The masses have followed the false myth and “legends” couched behind beautiful cinematography and classic music to jettison the Church and its ethic of love and justice and truth for the cheap and false gospel of the NFL, whose message’s only consistency is that of what is popular in the mainstream and will provide profits.

What is sad is that the NFL has over the last three decades successfully broken the American Church. The NFL now finds itself as one of the few authoritative arbiters of morality in America, sensing that Americans are looking to it to make a moral stand. The NFL, though, has no rich tradition or Scripture upon which to turn for guidance. The NFL’s only god is money. So while at times the NFL may take the correct moral stance, this is by happenstance only.

Do not give college or professional sports another minute of your attention or time. We were not created to watch these circuses while being fed this cheap bread. We were made to bow at the altar of God, sing songs of glory, pray, and do acts of love, reconciliation, and justice for our world.

Yours,
TulaneLSU

I love competition.

Since there’s been no sports on TV, I’ve realized how little of television I watch.

Catty girls and not-in-your-league guys. It’s how the world operates.
