Pick Your Candidate, Please


It had better your candidate winning the election that's more important to you than your team winning the Super Bowl.

I cover the NFL for a living, and those who discount what happens in pro football and in other sports as completely inconsequential are misguided. Sports bring people hope and joy and, yes, disappointment. They matter to many, many people, so that by itself means that they do matter in the grand scheme of our country.

But this election really, really matters. It's about a war and a struggling economy and so many other things that will have a direct impact on the quality of the lives of so many people in this country.

Sports do matter.

But this election matters much more.
