Not a football fan (rugby - yes, ice hocky - yes) but this:"Football is a hurt business, and the biggest cheers on Sunday will be for those who deliver the biggest hits"
Is the same as you hear from the anti NASAR/Indy/USAC crowd.
No. it isn't the biggest hits or worst crashes, it's the biggest run backs, the miraculous runs for a first down, the last lap passes and the turn four slides.
It is avoiding the crash, avoiding the "big hits", and it's for the Hail Marys. It's for the adrenalin rush and the vicarious thrill of both victory and loss.
I enjoy Little League and Women's Softball, but I have to remind the author that it is still possible to take a head shot at bat or a spike running to home.

Guess thats why the libs are trying to push soccer. Weakest of all the games called football.
Heaven forfend they allow cricket, where the pitcher
actually throws the ball straight at the batter
in order to get him to lose his composure and thus called out via making an error. Right?
