As football is a rite-of-passage for turning American boys into men, the sissified, pansied, metrosexual left just. cannot. abide. it.

Yeah, our country was founded and built by men that never played football. Now the country is going to hell in a handbasket because manly men are sitting on their couches losing brain cells watching football instead of doing things.

The way my boys avoided football was simple ~ BRACES!! Full uppers and lowers.

They look great.

Boy Scouting gave them all the outdoor exercise they needed, and the older one can still do a bare hands climb up a 40 foot rope to the top of a gym. The other is a larger fellow and can carry four water bottle crates under his arms ~ shoulders like a Tokugawa sword-chopper!

Then there were the two great grandfathers who tried out for the Big Leagues ~ they can throw anything! Some of this stuff is hereditary.

But no concussions like one of their uncles.

I gave up even the office touch football league when one of our guys broke his leg and was out of work for about 3 months. Just not worth it.

Correct, the sports programs are never cut when money gets tight. It’s the Roman Games all over again. Keep the rabble watching the Gladiators and they won’t notice were stealing their freedom. I was listening to a talk show once where the previous topic was vaccinations and the current topic was Bobby Hebert’s salary with the Saints. The caller asked to comment on the previous topic and said it was ridiculous what a Pediatrician was making from vaccinations but we should give Bobby whatever he wanted. Bobby was making more in one game than that Doc was making in a year. Priorities, the dad had to buy his season tickets or get the game plan on tv.
