I received this question from one of my students:
I was wondering, do you enjoy football?
Here is my reply:
I really do not want to answer this email. Hence, the delay. You likely do not want to hear my response.
No. I do not. I consider it barbaric and brutal. Just a few steps above gladiatorial combat, in my opinion. The similarities to Roman entertainment are chilling.
There is a movie I think every American should watch. It is called Concussion. It is a very good movie, but it is disturbing.
Here is a review on IMBD: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3322364/
Here is the trailer on YouTube: https://youtu.be/Io6hPdC41RMd
As I said, this is probably not the response you were expecting. I hope that I have not offended you. But, when someone asks me a question like this, I tend to answer honestly.
My friends have learned. They don’t ask me questions like this anymore.
