Football Games Are Not For Me


I’ve made up my mind never to attend another football game.  I’ve been a huge fan for many years, but now I’ve had it.  Let me list the reasons why:

  • I was taken to too many games by my parents when I was young.
  • The games are always played when I want to do something else.
  • Every time I go to a game, someone asks for money.
  • Although I go to games quite often, people are rarely friendly enough to speak to me.
  • The seats are too hard and uncomfortable.  Besides, I often have to sit down front on the 50 yard line.
  • I suspect there are hypocrites sitting nearby.  They come to see their friends and to look at what everyone else is wearing rather than to watch the game.
  • The field judge says things I don’t agree with.
  • The band always plays songs I’ve never heard before.
  • Some games last way too long.  This makes me get home late.
  • I have a big TV.  I can watch football on that.
  • I can always just listen to the game on the internet later on when it fits my schedule.

Well, there they are- the top reasons why I will never attend another football game.  Kind of foolish, isn’t it, to miss the joys of football for these reasons?  I wonder how many of us are missing the joys of worship, Bible study, training and prayer for reasons that are just as foolish.
