Nose tackle? Seriously? Surely you’re making this up.

In anticipation of the soul-crushing void left in my soul once baseball season ends (not to mention this potential NHL lockout, boo), I’m contemplating giving this football thing a go.

It  seems like it’s pretty popular, no? A lot of folks seem to be into it. I assume based on its pervasiveness that it offers some kind of entertainment value. So, yeah! Why the hell not?

I mean, I’m not completely football-ignorant. I’ve participated in a family football pool for as long as I can remember, I can name all of the teams, know many of the players, know that a field goal is three points and a touchdown six. I think a safety is two. But don’t ask me what a safety actually is, because I thought it was a position on the team.

Let’s just say I have a long ways to go before I can actually follow a game properly. Stay tuned, I guess?
