No, not me hopefully, unless its living as a robot, anyway! To be truthful, the human me is so beaten up already, that while not saying I’m ready to die just yet, I certainly dont want to live that long, either!
One thing I’ve noticed that most North American based sports have, and which seem now, to be creeping into more sports, is the ‘Hall Of Fame’ thing. I’m not saying its a bad thing, because as a historical lover of sports, it makes people think about players whose career is over, and in many cases, whose lives are over, and remember what they done. Most are remembered for one sport, or another, though there are a few (Jim Thorpe is the obvious name that comes to mind), who were famed in more than one sport, though generally in times when perhaps the depth of talent in most sports was not as deep as it is now.
Its not that long ago, baseball had its big ceremony, and this weekend, the NFL does the same. Yes, and that does mean, the first pre season game, is on Sunday! Given that one of the teams involved is starting a Quarter Back that no one has heard of, is miles down their depth chart, and everything else, its not to be taken too seriously. To be honest, apart from the one time, many years ago, that I saw a pre season game at Wembley, live, I dont take them seriously in the slightest. I know it was the Raiders, but who they played, no idea? At this point in time, ironically, for one of my 2 favorite US sports, I still havent seen a regular season game live, in person, but one day, I hope I will.
In truth, if anyone offered me a ticket, to any game this season, it would be an easy choice to make. Oh please, I’m a Buffalo Bills fan, and they’re playing the Los Angeles Rams, in Los Angeles, so yes, no contest! In fact, we are just a week away from the first pre season game in L.A, the first in town in, well, forever! Though this one is at the Coliseum, as the new stadium wont be available for a couple of years yet.
Maybe I’ll be a L.A citizen by then? Yes, and pigs fly, lol! But oh, I wish!
The video, well, the clue is in the title, its fair to say?
