After a long spring and summer America’s top sports league is back. The sometimes boring and monotonous training camps of July and August are complete. It is finally time to get the season under way on the greatest day of the week, Sunday.
There are many story lines to pay attention to this year. Will the young rookie Andrew Luck and RG3 QB’s shine and have a season the likes of Cam Newton last season? Will Peyton Manning return to his old form with the Broncos after sitting out the entire 2011 season? Can the teams like the 49ers and Texans continue the strong play they had last season? There are many more storylines that will follow as the season rages on through the Fall and into the Winter.
There is something about this season and this time of the year that just makes football fans a little happier. For many of us it bring back memories of growing up watching football with our families. Your home town team that you love so much no matter how horrible they are every year. For others it’s the nostalgia of playing the game while in grade school or high school. Then there are the fantasy football nuts that just can’t wait to show all of their friends how much more they know about the game and managing their own team. Whatever you reason is for getting excited about the upcoming season it a valid one.
Football has been around for many years and will be an American favorite for a lot more to come. It is engrained in our make up as people and as a country. We as Americans love physicality and proving who the better man or better men really are. In every game every Sunday we get to see just that, who is better on this day. So let the gatherings of friends and the barbeques continue into the winter cause football is back.
