I love football. I really do. As I went to meet a friend to watch the Cincinnati Bengals- Atlanta Falcons game, I wondered if it was wrong that I was excited for the game, given the NFL headlines regarding Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson. The issues at hand go far beyond the field of play and my hope is that eventually, professional football can live up to the aspirations and adulation bestowed upon it by fans.
Here’s to a better future, football.
