    ^^^I agree, Hokie. Give me college games any day of the week, and The Panthers on Sunday.

    He listed some valid points. But, I would rather watch a great College game over the NFL 90% of the time.

    WOW!!!!! Somebody that I can agree with 100%. I really like the part with the nerds interested in individual players. I watch a little for the individual players(EX- SEC), not some stupid fantasy.The College football season is second to none.

    Me and my husband pick different teams. When my team makes a touchdown - we have sex. When his team makes a touchdown - we have sex. Its a Win Win for everyone!!

    9. You care enough about Pre-Season to actually let it bother you?
    8. Wow you seem like you'd be a great ambassador for our Country, "America's the Best every other country is inferior"
    7. 90% of America Veg's around on Sundays. It's called the Day of Rest for a Reason.
    6. If your Mondays are so depressing that a game between the Raiders and Cheifs excites you than I feel horrible for you, and anyone around you on Mondays.
    5. Again like Pre-Season no one cares, people of Detroit forgot they had a team.
    4. There are 4 Divisions in Baseball that the leader holds a 6 game lead or less, and the Wild Card leads are at 2 and 4 games with about 20 games left for every team. It's not over.
    3. The Cheerleaders? Unless you're able to rub one out during the 15-20 seconds they are shown on TV during the course of a game, they are not that big of a deal. But if you can more power to you, and I hope your vision doesn't get too blury before playoff time.

    2. Arguably the greatest sport ever invented. It's not even the most popular sport ever invented.

    1. Fantasy Football is for nerds who don't have a pair to put on the table and gamble on a team. They do all the research a regular gambler would do, but see no rewards other than sitting in a crowded bar with their laptops, not pulling for any given team but for individual players.

    Greatest Week in Sports. Drumroll please ...... First Week in April.

    NCAA Basketball Title Game. Opening Week of Baseball Season. And ... The Masters.
