That's funny mainly because out of all the sports in America, football is far-and-away the most utterly regressive and socially backwards there is.

I wasn't discussing the sport itself.  But yes, it is brutal and militaristic.  I prefer baseball myself.

Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

I would not mind if the Yankees regained the title; The Nationals having lost the chance yet again...

I agree--Cleveland was the better team.  And Houston is the better team--even better than Cleveland--too.  But I'm still rooting for the Yanks!

Watching Ken Burns 'Baseball' right now.  Getting past Cobb and to Ruth.

And I grew up rooting for the Yankees in VA in the 60s when they were flat.  Well, I was the only kid in my VA school from "north".

I started rooting for the Yankees while in the 5th grade in Alabama.  Since I was from Oregon, I was branded a 'Yankee'; so it was natural to root for them.  And still do.

I have to ask.  There was a girl in school from GA, and I couldn't understand a WORD she said.  My classmates must have thought the same about me.  Did you have that same feeling?

Yes, sometimes we get local and detailed  But I can expand.  I can consider Buddihsts for example. 

The debate among monks unfolds in the presence of their teachers, with a very well set rules of procedure for the defender and the questioners. I think it is a bit like listening to rabbinacal jews.  The tradition of such debates is traced to the ancient Hindu Orthodoxy in India and this practice slipped into Buddhist orthodoxy in Tibet i(n the eighth century I think). One aspect of debates that intereats me is that defender of a claim seems to havethe onus to prove his point of view on the subject proposed for debate.

In the 5th grade I was in an elementary school that drew its students from the people who worked for a huge Army supply/ammo dump.  So, not all had that deep southern drawl.  After a bit I could understand them fairly well.

Top football players are not "millionaires".  They are "100 millionaires".  I expect a few are into the billionaire level.  Pretty good wages for some people who couldn't keep a real job...
