Unfortunately, it won’t be any time soon. I wrote back in 2020 how the NFL urinated on my decades of Philadelphia eagles fandom and how I walked away. Last summer the NFL was kind enough to drop a few reminders of why I was right to stop caring. Even this past week, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell used his State of the League press conference to push more woke garbage. So where is my reaon for hope?
Ace of Spades dropped an interesting post last month. NFL TV ratings are still reigning supreme, but long term trends are disturbing. The coveted 18-49 demographic has been slowly but very surely dropping. Goodell seem to have this notion that he’s going to gain viewers by alienating the parentsa of the next generation of fans. This spells long term doom for teh league, and I sincerely hope it turns its back on Radical Leftist politics in my lifetime.
And if it doesn’t? Meh. Nothing can take away the memories that I had, many of which went into the Top 100 Reasons the Philadelphia Eagles are the Coolest Team in pro football. Whatever you end up doing this evening, whether watching the game or boycotting, have a good one!

So, we’re back to discrimination.
We have a flyover, the US National Anthen, The Star Spangled Banner, and we have whatever the black anthem is, too.
But the flyover features all female pilots for the first time. LOL
And I just read that some ‘Salsa singer will be the first black/Latina to be on the face of a US quarter! We are making strides hand over fist!
Yes, but do not advocate for a whit history month. That would be racist.
Or a television network, WET. White Entertainment Television
We got rid of Aunt Jemima, Uncle Ben and the land o lakes Indian, yes even the adorable Eskimo from the ice cream bars, our work is done. We are now a non racist country.
The only games I have watched in the last five years were a couple of playoff games involving the Chiefs. When I turn on a game and the first thing that I see is something inane like “choose love “ on the back of some burly lineman’s helmet, I choose to use the remote.
KC by 3, not that I care which team actually wins, they aint da Packers.
Will the commercials be funny or clever?
Clyde Lewis always does his Satanic symbolism of half time recap, can they beat the Grammys?
Last spring, when my grandson was home from college, his parents were gone overnight. He wasn’t feeling well and went to the emergency room. I went up to sit with him. When they put him in a room, we turned on the NFL channel and they were showing old playoff games from the 80’s and 90’s. Dang, that brought back memories.
Kids today have no idea… Football used to be admirable.
