I will never go again

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:

  1. The Public Address system was too loud at times and not loud enough at others.
  2. There were teenage girls dressed inappropriately.
  3. The referees made calls I disagreed with.
  4. The coaches used the same plays they did the last few games.
  5. The High School Principal did not welcome me or shake my hand.
  6. The band played songs I did not know or like.
  7. 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?
  8. There were people there to socialize (gossip) and not watch the game — those hypocrites.
  9. 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.
  10. 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?

  3. 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 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?”
