What’s the attraction to football? Each year, every week, a game can be found just about anywhere. While I can understand the game, I wouldn’t call myself a fanatic. If my team happens to do well, great, if not I don’t really care. Now some may say that I’m not a true fan because of my attitude towards it and they may be right. I don’t eat, sleep and breathe sports so I guess I’m not that big of a fan.

What interests you about football or any sport for that manner? I can say this, I do love baseball, tennis and golf. I do keep up with some of it, but I still don’t go as far as I see some people with painting their vehicles in their favorite team’s logo. They’re always in team colors (always). They have tattoos celebrating their teams. I mean, I have seen them even carve out their favorite team logo or mascot creating garden topiary.

I may own a couple of t-shirts, but that’s about the extent of what I’ll do for a team. I will say this, I am a Mets fan. They break my heart all the time so I don’t pay as much attention to them. In 2015, I debated flying up north to watch them play in the World Series. Glad I didn’t spend the $2,000 for tickets not to mention the airfare and lodging since they did what they normally do; let me down. Now, I don’t think that you could say tht I’m not a Mets fan. Heck saying that out loud and admitting that is a big deal to a Mets fan. We choke all of the time!

Now returning to you and the question at hand, what is it about football that makes you do such things?
