I am about to admit to something that a lot of men do not or will not admit to. I do not watch college football. There are a few reasons for this, I have never gone to college, I did take classes in broadcasting but I don’t think the Illinois Center for Broadcasting has a football team. The other reason is that I cannot dedicate a whole day just lounging around in my boxers and stained t-shirt watching sports.
The first issue is probably the biggest. I notice on my Facebook feed every week my friends, who were smart and continued their education, cheer on their alma mater. I am know this is a large part of the experience and perhaps I would be more passionate about the sport had I gone to collidge.
The second of my 2 issues is something I can overcome. It seems that no matter where I go or what I do there are a couple of college games on the television. So I suppose I do not have to disrupt my life in order to enjoy the sport. Also, teams change every year, guys move on to the NFL, so there is a lack of caring about the players on the team you cheer for and really you are just cheering on a name.
Here is what I have decided to do, since I am a man without a team I am opening it up to you , the reader. I will let you comment below this post and you will choose my team. It can be the best team or the worst team, just not Penn State, I cannot even pretend to like them. I will become a huge fan of that team I will watch the games, I will post to Facebook and I might even get a sweatshirt. So there you have it, my college sports future is in your hands, once there are enough suggestions I will reveal the winner. So, Ready. Set. Go.
