    I had a gifted History teacher in High School who spoke about football in the terms you just did. He broke it down on the high school level with Homecoming, going as far as describing the fire engines the cheerleaders ride in on in phallic terms.

    And I think about the Super Bowl and how they always have jets fly overhead right before kickoff. Talk about macho!

    BTW: Here in Los Angeles we've done without football for over 10 years and it's safe to say that the NFL misses us more than we miss it.

    The world looks aflame from afar, but close up it's just fireflies in a jar. Visit me daily at artofstarving

      why LA got the expansion team in 2001 instead of Houston...oh wait.

      News flash - neither the NFL nor LA needs eachother.  At all.  Well...I take that back.  The NFL needs the idea of LA out there to wring better stadium deals.  And, the folks in LA need a full slate of NFL games on their TV every sunday.

      That is the extent of it.

      BTW - your history teacher was a self righteous asshole
