      I developed an incredible hatred of North American football in my childhood.  Games would run over time and keep me from watching my beloved 'Wild Kingdom' on Sunday evenings.  I would try and watch the end of the game when that happened and I found it incomprehensible and incredibly boring.  Two groups of men line up and crash into one another and then stand around for a couple of minutes.  Repeat over and over again.
