Homer Simpson is not generally regarded as a very smart fellow. However, he had a fantastic monologue tonight in response to his kids asking why they were going to the football game so early.
“We’re not here for the game. The game is nothing. The game is crap. The game makes me sick. The real reason we Americans put up with sports is for this: Behold, the tailgate party. The pinnacle of human achievement. Since the dawn of parking lots, man has sought to fill his gut with food and alcohol in anticipation of watching others exercise.”
Brilliant! And generally how I feel about football, anyway.
