American football is America's real national past time. Baseball has long lost this coveted title. People constantly complain that fewer African Americans are playing organized baseball. They give many reasons for this state of affairs. However, reason number one has to be that many African Americans, like many Americans of all backgrounds, find baseball to be rather boring. Football and basketball offer far more excitement.
Many girls and women are football fans, too. They are found braving the elements at games, watching on television, etc. In some cases, wives know more about the game than do their husbands. This is why I cringe every time I hear the term "12th man" when referring to fans of the home team. Men are not the only ones loudly willing their team to victory.
This blog will be for anyone interested in the National Football League. All kinds of insights and opinions are welcome. We are the midway point of the season, so there is still a lot of football to discuss.
Let's have at it.
