Greed is a bottomless pit which exhausts the person in an endless effort to satisfy the need without ever reaching satisfaction. Erich Fromm

How Football Could Save America


Here is how Football could save America.  Every week millions of people watch football games. The teams have names like the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Kansas City Chiefs, the Green Bay Packers, and the Oakland Raiders. All very macho and manly names. Then there are the animal names: the Seattle Seahawks, the Philadelphia Eagles, the Chicago Bears, and the Detroit Lions.  The list goes on and on: the Buccaneers, the Cowboys, the Rams, the Chargers, etc etc.  But is this really America???  Are there any “steelers” left in Pittsburgh?  Or  ‘packers” left in Green Bay???  The only “Raiders” in California were the corporate kind, and now the ones buying foreclosed properties for pennies on the dollar.

Maybe if the football teams change their names, Americans could be reminded each week about the true status of America.
