Today is the 30th anniversary of the biggest sporting event of my Northeast Ohio childhood. In case you think your teams have played worse than mine, remember that this is my biggest highlight. It’s interesting that the announcer called Mike Davis’ interception a “miracle,” as if Cleveland fans had any doubts that God was against them.
I also notice that the players seem normal-sized and genuinely excited when they win the game. It’s like when you’re in fifth grade you can play tackle football in the backyard and really enjoy it, but when you get into high school it’s just too dangerous. Maybe the NFL is becoming too professional, and the players too big, that it’s losing some of its grade school fun. I’m going to go ahead and call it. The NFL has jumped the shark, and its popularity will now begin to wane (especially after DeMaurice Smith, a Cedarville alum, leads the players association into a lockout).
