I am through with football. I have been watching games and going to high school and college games for a long time now. I
have seen hundreds if not thousands of plays, touchdowns, fumbles, and injuries. I am tired of football. It has nothing to do with whether my team(s) lost or not this weekend. I have ten reasons I am finished:
- The Public Address system was too loud at times and not loud enough at others.
- There were teenage girls dressed inappropriately.
- The referees made calls I disagreed with.
- The coaches used the same plays they did the last few games.
- The High School Principal did not welcome me or shake my hand.
- The band played songs I did not know or like.
- They play the same songs every week. How many times do I have to hear Rock and Roll Part II (The Hey Song)? Do they have to sing the alma mater at the end of every game?
- There were people there to socialize (gossip) and not watch the game — those hypocrites.
- I had to pay to get in, pay to get a snack, pay for a program — football is all about making money for the school not about guys playing ball anymore.
- Large crowds are bad on my nerves and raise my blood pressure too high.
THIS IS COMPLETELY SARCASTIC. I will see you at homecoming Friday at OHS and will catch college games on Saturday. Why do these excuses sound familiar? Why do we use them for quitting other things – like church? Why don’t they work for sports?

Love the post.
Thanks, Joe. I am behind on reading Faith and Footsteps, but I enjoy it every time a read.

Scott, I shared this article I found with my readers some time back…
What if people had the same attitude toward food that some have about worshipping God?
I DON’T EAT ANYMORE BECAUSE……
· I was forced to eat as a child.
· People who eat all the time are hypocrites; they aren’t really hungry.
· There are so many different kinds of food, I can’t decide what to eat.
· I used to eat, but I got bored.
· None of my friends will eat with me.
· I only eat on special occasions, like Christmas and Easter.
· I’ll start eating when I get older.
· I’m too busy working to go eat.
· I don’t really have the time to eat.
· I don’t believe that eating does any good. It’s just a crutch.
· Restaurants and grocery stores are only after your money.
Regular attendance for worship to God is vital for a healthy soul (Hebrews 10:25). Our relationship with God is far more important than regular, balanced meals.
Without spiritual food, we will die (1 Peter2:2).
How often do you “eat?”
