5 reasons the NFL is getting hard to watch

I love sports and while football isn’t my favorite, I do enjoy watching a game on the gridiron. I used to just watch football for the sack of football. But it’s getting harder and harder to watch.  Here are five reasons (in no particular order, because they’re all horrible) why as each season goes by, I watch fewer and fewer games.

s-town

S-Town is the new podcast from Serial and This American Life (I highly recommend both shows, especially season 2 of Serial) that chronicles… well, I’ll let them tell you:

JOHN DESPISES HIS ALABAMA TOWN AND DECIDES TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. HE ASKS a reporter to investigate the son of a wealthy family who’s allegedly been bragging that he got away with murder.

Guns take a life in America every 16 minutes. Enough is enough. I know the NRA is one of the most powerful lobbies in Washington (if not the most powerful), but this is ridiculous. It shouldn’t be easier to get a gun then it is to get a driver’s license.  It’s time for some Australian styled gun control.  Email your representative in the House and Senate to tell them you want gun control NOW!

@Uptomyknees (Max Landis) likes to Tweet up a Twitter storm

 

I’m a fan of screenwriter Max Landis (Twitter handle @Uptomyknees) and a few weeks ago, it occurred to me that I could probably follow him on Twitter, so I did.  I guess I shouldn’t be surprised he’s a frequent Tweeter, but brother, can that guy ever Tweet.  He’s the Tweetest Tweeter whoever Tweeted.
