    The first hint of fall comes with the early evening shadows. It's that time of year again. The whole offseason is a waiting game of the spirit, until the world's greatest toy store reopens, the NFL. This is the pinacle of our nation's prosperity: leisure time, at peace, with family, friends, food and football. Real differences, racial, political, professional, religious, become inconsequential, and strangers are bound together by a sense of hope and community. How is it that a child's game can unite a nation so bitterly divided? Closing in on opening weekend, I am thankful to still be alive and able to witness these trivial acts of athletic heroism. The NFL is like a fortress, and inside 32 Lords stage an annual morality play, where simple virtues always triumph. Outside is a twilight world where heroes perish, cowards rise to power, and the moral outcome is still in doubt.

    Nice post, good sentiments, but when I read the "at peace" part I wondered if you forgot we have soldiers dying in Iraq and Afganistan?

    He covered all that in the last sentence. " ... where heroes perish ... " (soldiers), " ... cowards rise to power ... " (Bush/Bin Laden) " ... " ... and the moral outcome is still in doubt." (terrorism, government ineptitude, etc.).

    Nice post Pony, very poetic.
