Czabe and boys,
I think I might be a football fan.
And it’s all your fault.
You’ve done what no one has been able to do in my 30 years on this earth. After listening to you guys talk about football, and talk about all the possible week 17 outcomes, I made the CHOICE to ACTIVELY watch the Packers, Bears game. And boy, was I rewarded.
After watching Aaron Rodgers throw 2 picks, Jay Cutler run, pass, and wander around the pocket freely on 3rd down multiple times, and the Bears take a seemingly effortless 7-0 lead, I was convinced the I knew how the game was going to end.
And when it was 28-20 Bears at the beginning of the 4th quarter, I was convinced the Packers were going to lose by 1. I just didn’t see a playoff caliber team in the Packers (still don’t).
And along comes the NFL, delivering what you call “the crack cocaine” of the sports world. Cutler makes ONE slight miscalculation, and opened the door for Rodgers and the Packers. THREE 4th down conversions in ONE drive, at one time coming down to inches, and the Rodgers to Cobb hammer that put the final nail in the Bears coffin at the last minute, literally; that was AWESOME!!!
I get it now. The NFL has provided a product that delivers some thrills so consistently that no other sport can compare.
And now I load up your podcast on my semi-crippled phone, and prepare to listen to it through my bluetooth headset for three hours. And I’m making sure that my weekend travel plans include a place that I can sit down and watch the Packers, 49ers game (if it’s not blacked out). Because the NFL and the Steve Czaban show is just THAT good.
Kind of a football fan
