In The Blink Of An Eye

So, my friend says, “All this World Cup crap is just part of a plot to make soccer our new national sport.”

I say, “I don’t think so. American football, professional American football, is so huge and it makes so much money, soccer’s not gonna replace it any time soon.”

My friend says, “But the government’s involved. Watering it down. Making it safer. American football. They’re going to ban anything exciting about the sport.”

I don’t know why but I’m gettin’ pissed and I say, “A multi-billion dollar….maybe it takes in trillions, I don’t know….The government allows the NFL non-profit status and, you say, they’re conspiring to knock their number one pedestal out from under them?”

“That’s right.”

I know better than continue so I say, “Okay, I give up. You win.”

Then I stay quiet for a couple of minutes.

My friend asks, “Why so quiet?”

I whisper, “If the government can shut down ‘America’s Religion,’ just think what they can do to us.”
