NFL as Life in the USA

“Professional football, like no other game, clearly represents America—the good, bad, loud, violent, ugly and beautiful,” opines Rick Cohen in the WSJ.

I agree. We love to watch people hurt themselves. We love to argue with the officials. We love to idolize players right up to the point we exclaim about how they could be so stupid and narcissistic. We love to pretend that this now-almost-year-long orgy of self-indulgence means something. It does: America is circling the drain faster every year.
