    Football is Boring to Watch, at Any Level

    Not once in my life have I wanted to watch, or flip channels to the current football game(s) that are on. There is nothing fun about it to me, all I see are people running around a field or running into each other. Think about how much more entertaining it would be to flip over to the Comedy channel or even the news.

    I am not sure what it is about old people and sports, but football seems to take over and spread throughout every single channel on TV. What’s so interesting about it? After asking myself this, I did some research and what it came down to was shocking. Basically, Americans just use football as an excuse to drink their beers, have a bunch of parties, get pissed, go ballistic, you name it.

    So, in conclusion, football is as boring as watching paint dry, less entertaining than stapling your shirt to your skin, hitting yourself on the head with a baseball bat, or even getting run over by a car. I’ve said my peace, football sucks, it’s the worst sport ever, only rednecks and old people like it, there are no young people who are hip to it and I do not see myself liking even the thought of it in the near future.
