Someone please tell us what makes football so awesome! We think football lacks aesthetic unity. The events early in a football game have no bearing on the later events. One team can seemingly hold victory tight in a horse collar grip only to lose the game by some last-second miracle play. Under the microscope this week: is the talk about football, and the talk about the talk about football, a masters class in the sport, similar to the way a masters class in literature might talk about the talk about a famous novel? No, of course not. For one thing, people don’t talk about the game of football, just the crap happening to people who play football. Football is crap!
