Fearless Football Forecast

Two professional football games will be played today in America. I doubt I will watch a second of either of them. Most of the participants in these contests are wildly overpaid to play a children's game. Who is worth more to humanity- a surgeon who saves lives every day or a quarterback who completes sixty percent of his passes? Why is the athlete paid ten times more than the doctor? Is a stadium a more important venue than a hospital or school? Why do teachers make so little and pro athletes so much? I do not hate football. I just wonder if the majority of people might abandon our version of bread and circus and prioritize our real issues for a change.
