    I was watching "Football Night in America" just a few minutes ago and it made me think of the idea that the network is trying to make football some sort of symbol of American patriotism. It's not.

    Should we now believe that watching the NFL is "a patriotic thing to do". I just thought it was a ridiculous title to give to a pre-game show.

    It's like you can hear the guy with the deep voice saying,

    "And now, FOOTBALL NIGHT IN AMERICA"

    It kinda reminds me of the republican tactic of calling people "Real Americans". As if this program is a show for "Real Americans"!

    Let's get real.

    I don't think I remember Keith Olbermann speaking at the Republican convention.......
    They may try to make it out to be patriotic but trust me, Olbermann and NBC are hardly Republicans...............

    That is true, but the "patriotic" angle is a republican tactic as is the "real American" slant

    So if you're pro-American you're a Republican and not a Democrat? Interesting coming from a Democrat such as yourself.

    My point is, FOOTBALL has NOTHING to do with patriotism or being a real American, we can all agree on that fact. the point is, it's just another sport. But the title attempts the give the viewer the feeling it's something every American does on Sunday nights and when they do it, it gives them this patriotic feeling....not true.

    This is not a hugely seriousl thread, so let's not try to make it such.

    "Since when is Football a republican sport? My point is, FOOTBALL has NOTHING to do with patriotism or being a real American, we can all agree on that fact."

    One can only surmise from that that you are saying if it's patriotic or "being real American" it has to be Republican and couldn't be Democratic. I can see why you are a big time Obama/Ayers supporter.

    Give it up and grow up Michael. I don't believe nor have I said anything you're inferring. I just said the "Real American" thing is a republican tactic.

    Are you in a mood to instigate tonight or something...lol?:rolleyes:

    Spoken like a true adolescent...time to grow up buddy. If you followed along, the other poster was just trying to instagate an argument and take the thread off-topic.

    You wouldn't know soft underbelly if you found one. You're silly enought to follow a MAN and obey HIS rules as if he is not a man, but a god. Yet all he is a false prophet who thinks all women like him. So does that mean that all your wives and daughters will mysteriously not be able to help themselves when in his prescence?

    How could you fall for such a fool?

    You've lost your mind, PR, this is stupid. I would NEVER watch that show, anyway, with Odorman on it.

    Why do you come here and try to defend someone I may be crushing? Do you feel bad for these people like they can't handle themselves and you have to stick your nose in like you can't mind your own business?

    Seriously, you rarely come here and when you do, you seem to look for stuff I write that you don't like. Well if I write stuff you don't like...TOO BAD BUDDY...Tough sh1t to you, your wife and your whole family.

    I don't work in a cubicle, I work from my home like real men do:D

    I placed second in the states in division 1 wrestling and started division 1 football in both my junior and senior years. Although that may be ages ago, it tells you a little about my "wimpiness".

    Now what sports do/did YOU play little fella?

    BTW....nix the tough guy talk and just mind your own business. Do you see me coming onto the main board 2-3 times a week just to comment on you? No, because that would make me WHAT?

    AN IDIOT, that's what. :rolleyes:

    Oh You work from home! So not only do you not have a family you have no coworkers! Maybe thats why you have no idea how things work in the real world. Why is it when someone is confronted with their own wimpyness they always come back with I started on my football team in highschool and I was a state wrestling champion! Big flippin deal! Doesn't prove anything I still think your a wimp! Now go call your therapist before you do something stupid!!

    PR, now don't get all upset at this question, you spoke of "Wrestling" I have often wondered as I watch some of the positions that Wrestlers get themselves into, do they ever become sexually aroused during a match----:confused:
