Jerry Greene of the Orlando Sentinel writes today:
That's right, friends, football season is over. Oh, sure, there's the Pro Bowl on Sunday night, but that's like giving methadone to an opium addict. It's not the real thing.It's a great question. Leave a comment answering the question. For me, football is the only thing I really miss. I watch March Madness, but that's about it for basketball. Don't care much for baseball and the NBA. Greene gives some ideas:
We must watch something else, but what?
We can rule out hockey -- because it already ruled out itself. I know there are a few of you who are miserable because the NHL is pulling its own plug. But most of us do not miss it for a moment.
Almost all of us miss football. We can't stand the idea of being without it even for a few months. But we must. It is the way of things.
So what about other sports? Do we care? That's our question today, class: 'If a sport other than football disappeared, would you miss it?'
Hockey : We've answered that.
Arena football: After your third big beer, you can hardly tell the difference.
Baseball: If you're from Montreal, you don't have to answer this. Tampa can skip this one, too.
Extreme sports: Judging by the falls these kids take, this activity is probably cleaning out the genetic pool and eliminating itself.
NASCAR: Hey, back off! I was kidding! (Nice shotgun rack in your truck.)
Poker: If you watch other people playing poker, you are in serious need of a life.
Figure skating: Women (and men) wearing sequins and displaying great taste in music. Something for everyone.
