Why Men Love Football
This last Sunday I got peer pressured into going to a Super Bowl party. I really just wanted to stay at home and watch the Real Housewives but sometimes the FOMO is too great. I decided to turn this event into a social experiment and examine "why men love football."
There are so many reasons why men love football (and sports just in general) that my little video can't cover them all. One of the guys interviewed, stated that sports is the closest thing guys have to the gladiator battles in ancient Rome. I found this to be extremely interesting because it illustrates how ingrained "survival of the fittest" and competition is in our psyche. We are taught as kids to be competitive and be the "best." But what is "best"? The "Best" doesn't exist. Maybe it still does in sports and kept in the arena of sports is fine. But in the arena of life, I believe we are all unique and here for a purpose. Therefore, winning at life is trying to figure out what your gifts are and how they can contribute to the world. Nobody can be you and you can't be anyone else so if we are the best at being ourselves, well, then that's pretty freaking amazing!
