    Football is what we have in our Empire instead of the Coliseum. And the body count is much lower.

    You just take the biggest, buffest guys with the most aggressive tendencies, roid 'em up to the max, and let 'em smash into each other like waves breaking against the shore. It's great!

    And if you have enough circuses, you can actually do away with the bread, as we've done.

    In Texas, football, not Jesus, is the one true religion. Without churches, people would complain about it in the paper. But without football, there would be riots and anarchy.

      forever.

      My daughter was in Costco yesterday. A guy came up to her, asked her if she was interested in playing football. He told he'd been watching her since she walked into the store, and thought she'd make a great football player.

      Oddly, and more than a bit disturbing to her father, she was flattered by his offer, but turned him down.
