Football as a Soap Opera
Think of football (and any sport for that matter) as a soap opera. Get to know the stories behind the players, coaches and teams. Learn about the politics of the game and the rivalries between teams. Learn about a poor kid from an Idaho farm who overcame losses and multiple odds to become the premier player in the league. Understand these things and you’ll love the game. You might even cry like you are watching a special on the Hallmark channel.
