No Football? No Way!
Read my lips: It can’t happen. In this miserable economy with one of, if not THE biggest escapes for men (and some woman) the NFL is badly needed. It used to be about folks backing their home team. Not now.
It’s the fun,enjoyment and that $100 bet that matters on Sunday, Monday, Thursday and even some Saturdays in the world of today’s NFL. We would all be so damn depressed. I think it’s so important that behind the scenes the White House would get involved. If they haven’t already. Even Obama needs the NFL for relief of stress.
If he wants to get re-elected.
Yes, for 3-9 hours on any given Sunday a guy can leave his problems at the door. Just sit back and get into one to three games. Yes from noon until nearly midnight it’s NFL action on Sunday.
Hey, what’s even nicer is you get to come home Monday to Monday Night Football and that makes Mondays bearable.
For us Kansas City Chiefs fans, we now have a team that looks like, well, a team.
Most of us believe the Chiefs are on their way to being a playoff club every year.
So this makes the entire strike an NO GO for us. Hell, without the Chiefs we have uh, nothing.
Well, KU basketball maybe. Our other local teams suck or are close to being awful. The Missouri Tigers football team is good, not great.
So that’s it. We don’t have to get into the phony Royals yet.
With a poor economy, few smiles on peoples faces, the NFL has never been so needed. The sport is by far the No. 1 entertainment on the planet now – at least here in the U.S.A. Players salaries will continue to climb, with no more true movie stars and few TV stars and no music mavens. It’s the NFL players who are best known and talked about. A distant second is NBA and college football and hoops.
Baseball, I don’t know what keeps that up at all.
Nobody remembers who even won the World Series anymore. Nor do they much care.
And if you think NFL money is crazy now, just wait. In the next 10 years quarterbacks will be making $50-$100 million a year.
They are the superstars of today.
If the worst happens – and I say it won’t – and there’s no NFL season, here’s what they’ll do to cover the time and escape:
College Football games will be played on Sunday and Monday Night. Simple as that.
