You see, I've been trying to figure out the nigh-on incomprehensible rules of American football. I've sat through several games now, and I think maybe I'm not smart enough to understand this game. It seems like they play for about 8 seconds, there's a big dogpile of muscled men in tight pants, and then they all get up and talk about it for a while. How can you settle into the game when they keep stopping to mill about and have conversations? Christ, it's like a 70s hippie orgy! "I know I just jumped on you without much preamble - how are you FEELING about that right now? Do you want to try that again, cuz I feel like we really have a connection going..." Really, that's my subtitle for all of their talking.
Context is a stranger in a strange land. The Midwest.
