Rhetorical Questions

You might be shocked by this confession.  Deep breath.

“Football is the ballet of the masses.” Dmitri Shostakovich 

I am not a fan of the spandex wearing, shoulder padded, helmet butting sports. 

“Football combines two of the worst things in American life. It is violence punctuated by committee meetings.” George Will 

And why do baseball coaches wear a uniform and not football coaches? 

However, I pay attention if there is NFL craziness that has ramifications on a bigger scale.

“Football: A sport that bears the same relation to education that bullfighting does to agriculture.” Elbert Hubbard 

Just a few recent dust ups; the dolphins bullying scandal, controversial team names, the correlation between head injuries while wearing a helmet and Parkinson’s disease.

"We didn't tackle well today, but we made up for it by not blocking." John McKay

But wait! There’s more.

Ready for some hypocrisy? 

“Honey, our son understands rhetorical questions with deeper meaning.” 

This bit, pointing out hypocrisy has been around for awhile but still pretty damn amazing. 

And one more little piece of NFL craziness. 

A goal for little boys to aspire to . 

And wow! The congress might just have some serious competition for Hypocritical Group of the Year.  They better step it up!

“Pro Football is like nuclear warfare. There are no winners, only survivors.” Frank Gifford
