I Hate Football

sad sack
The Giants were awful.

The Jets were worse.

Life is meaningless and filled with pain.

'nuff said.

Re: Was Football Always Popular in the American Consciousness?
Baseball still calls itself "the national pastime," but pro football has been the more popular sports since at least the 70s. The Superbowl has long since eclipsed the World Series as the most popular sporting event in the US.

That being said, baseball is still the more "literary" sport, for whatever reason. Many more books and stories have been written about baseball, real and fictional, than all other sports combined. The same is true of film, as you point out.

I have done my own part to redress that imbalance, by the way. Back in the 70s I wrote two SF/ football stories, "Run To Starlight" and "The Last Super Bowl" (which is about to be outdated). Though I do like baseball, I have never written a baseball story. Maybe one day.
