    Ah– But finally this madness is over– for a while.

    Highly over-paid “athletes”, some of whom are gun toting thugs that beat up their wives, girl-friends, children and dogs– all to enhance their macho image. They play in subsidized (Socialist) stadiums with a following that exceeds the frenzy of many religious cults. Some players are doomed to concussion-caused permanent brain damage– but who cares– this is all entertainment for the masses.

    Millions of $$$$$’s for NFL football— pennies for cancer cure research.

    But soon the “March Madness” begins, and the frenzy continues.
