Football’s back, baby

I keep reminding myself not to get excited about the return of football. Sports has been a welcome distraction in this time of staying home all the time. But while I’ve enjoyed the NBA bubble success, the same can’t be said about baseball.

I know part of it is due to the team for whom I root is a disaster this year (not even Mookie would have saved it, but I fell that it was part of the plan), but I’ve gotten less interested in baseball overall. Used to be my favorite sport. How will football look this year, and will the joy of seeing men hit each other bring the enjoyment that it used to bring?

I’ll give it the old college try (wait, many of them aren’t playing), well, we’ll see how it goes today. Whether football catches back on with me, or I drift away and think of all the negatives about football, which ends my fandom, will be seen.
