#1. Sunday Night Football: Sunday night football was a bad idea by whoever created it. It overlaps Jersylicious. Strike one.
#2. Fantasy Football: Makes you watch every NFL game. Strike two.
#3. Madden 2012: Actually more boring than watching football. Strike three.
#4. Pink Jerseys: Pink is not an NFL team color. It used to be the safest color (as a girl) to wear to any sporting event. Now it’s not.
#5. Mascots: Don’t make sense. In the real world a lion would eat a ram. Saints can’t steal. Cardinals are about as tough as hummingbirds. It’s just wrong for the patriots to beat the Chiefs. And dolphins? If you have to go aquatic…go with a shark, stingray, killer whale, octopus even. Not a dolphin. If I had to start an NFL team it’d be the “I – Crush – Yous.”
#6. The rules. Are impossibly confusing.
#7. The announcers. Are even more confusing. This is what I hear…. “67 to the 32 yard line. Second to three. Inside hand off. At the first down. Beautifully done by Scotty Hampton. Set 3 great play by the defensive offensive line to the quarterback. Full back. Defensive end. Biochemical engineering. At&t. Human Genome Project. Blue 42. Back to you Ted.”
#8. The pants.
10. The reactions. I don’t hate this per say it’s just really amusing. My husband is not a loud man. If he drops something heavy on his foot you get a barely whispered “ouch.” If he wins $100 you might get a calm “hey look at that.” But a touchdown. Now that gets a completely different reaction. ” GO! GO! GO! GO GO GO!!!! TOUCHDOWN! HELL YEAH! TOUCH – DOOOOOOWWWWWNNNNN!!!!!!! Did you see that? DID. YOU. SEE. THAT. TOUCH DDDDDOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWNNNNN!!!!! HELL!!!! YEAH!!!! THAT’S WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT! Replay. Replay. Check this out. THERE HE GOES. O…O… OH! OOOOOOOOHHHHH! TOUCH DOOOOOOWN!”
