I've heard a rumor that games aren't 60 minutes long any more. I wonder how long Sunday's game will go because I have to do some painting in my house that day. Anybody know? I wonder what we'll do with all those glorious, old sayin's about how "You Play for 60 Minutes"? A game could be 40 minutes now, so how does a coach scream at his players to play for 60 minutes? That would be dumb. What does the coach scream now? "Go play until you think you're beaten, and then don't worry because the refs will call it off before we get to see how bad we are. Adn the other guys - they are what we think they are! The potties will be behind the bench! Now go get 'em for as long as the refs think you should get 'em!" And out the locker room door will charge 53 angry young men determined to last longer than the last team lasted. Wow, can they last 42 minutes? An NFL record! I assume in this new era we'll have fines and possible retribution with knives and guns if one team doesn't oblige. I can understand this sentiment because tender feelings do get hurt when one team plays the whole game against the rules. Hey, maybe MLB isn't such a bad deal after all. Nobody complains when you win 13-1 on the national stage, and the game keeps going until the end. Where did they ever get that concept?
