"He can move his hands. He did move his hands.”
The announcer happily announced.
We watch football like the Romans watched their gladiators.
It hurts sometimes to watch, but we watch, and we cheer, and we boo.
Until a very bad injury occurs.
We stop drinking and eating for a few moments.
Our stomachs ache from what we just saw.
Then the player is taken off of the field.
But it's halftime.
We can breathe again.
Until the third quarter begins.
The injured player has been taken to a hospital.
The announcers will tell us later the status of this injured player.
But the game, the show, must go on.
We will continue to watch, to cheer, to boo, until the next traumatic injury occurs.
Football is a violent sport, but we love to watch it.
IT'S ABOUT RENEWABLE RESOURCES AND FOOTBALL
