This question sparked some debate amongst my friend group so I decided to write about it. It didn’t take me much time to come up with my answer… I would absolutely give up summer to have a full football season. If you followed me this past year, then you should know that this doesn’t come as a surprise. I am a football guy… thick and thin… full-throttle… foot to the gas; I eat, sleep, and breathe football. I am more here to explain to you that, while I do enjoy a Corona with lime on the beach (not anymore though), summer is overrated.
Cut the shit. Summer ain’t what it used to be. Most of us reading this are adults and don’t get the luxury of doing whatever the fuck we want to from June to August anymore. We still have to work… there is no summer vacation. We all say its the best time of year because its been that way for most of our lives. But, in reality that ain’t the case anymore. I don’t know about you, but I fucking hate being drenched in sweat when I have to walk down my driveway to get the God damn mail. And although I do love baseball, you can make the debate its the worst time of year for sports. I mean we look forward to July 4th when Joey Chestnut and Kobyashi eat a disgusting amount of weiners. All summer is good for is getting drunk at the beach with your boys. That’s dope, but that ain’t happening all summer. If you wanna be a mature adult, sit down and think about this for a second. Summer is clearly the third best season. It goes 1. Fall, 2. Spring, 3. Summer, 4. Winter. This is obvious when you get to my age. Let’s be adults, summer is cool but it’s overrated. I respect everyone’s opinion, and we all spend our summer differently, but it ain’t close.
Football is the most popular sport in this country. In the fall, it owns a day of the week; and if you have a sick obsession like I do, it owns the weekend. The thought of no football once September kicks around keeps me up at night, not potentially getting laid off from work because of this worldwide pandemic. I need football in order to be a functional human being. I don’t wanna know what I’d be like without it. Fuck, I don’t wanna know what this country would be like without it. The answer is easy. Football > Summer.
