It's only a game -- yeah, sure ...

Too much football yesterday ... the slug fest in the rain between Cincinnati and Pittsburgh left me wrung out and all I did was sit in front of a TV. This game confirmed pretty much everything Gregg Easterbrook says about the game: in its brutal ugliness, it mirrors the contradictions of our society. This context did however completely contradict his prediction axioms: the team with both the better record and the home field lost.

More thoughtful blogging will have to wait til Monday. For now I seem to be immersed in NFL playoff football.

I saw part of the game at a neighbor's birthday party. It seemed like quite a struggle.
