Blake’s Beats: Why I’m regretfully excited about the NFL season

Sundays used to be a holy day. The living room was my church, and I prayed with conviction to the altar of National Football League. 

I would stroll into the old RCA Dome with my grandfather, knowing nothing else other than I was happy if the team with blue horseshoes on their helmets won, and I was so unreasonably sad if they lost.  

I was blissfully ignorant to the carnage happening in front of me, and behind the scenes too.

Cheering with baited breath and a keen eye, being an NFL fan makes me feel dirty

Sundays used to be a holy day. The living room was my church, and I prayed with conviction to the altar of National Football League.  I would stroll into the old RCA Dome with my grandfather, knowing nothing else other than I was happy if the team with blue horseshoes on their helmets won, and I was so unreasonably sad if they lost.   I was blissfully ignorant to the carnage happening in front of me, and behind the scenes too.
