Unfortunately, I made the mistake of flipping on Kurt Warnerâ€™s press conference to announce his retirement.
Forty minutes later and I cannot put together a single cohesive thought to save my life.Â I cannot think of any other profession where one personâ€™s decision to leave a job â€” other than late night talk show hosts, and we can all admit that is a relatively rare occurrenceÂ â€” receives as much press coverage as when an athlete retires.Â Football fans love to trot out the overused canard â€œfootball is a team sportâ€ and â€œplay as a team, win as a teamâ€, but deep down we know it is not true.Â One player or one coach can change an entire team.Â The foundation of talenljwrjklasdijpxamxsaâ€™MKNFLDSndjkla HOW CAN PEOPLE WRITE THIS WAY?!?@!?@1
See up there? 20 seconds ago? Where I said â€œcannot put together a single cohesive thought to save my lifeâ€ before the rambling started? Watching forty minutes of a football retirement speech has reduced me to nothing but a pile of cliches.Â No wonder â€œyour local sportswriter sucksâ€ was such a hit a few years ago.Â Where is the research on the damage caused by attending x-amount of pressers over the years?
