I Looked Away

My interest in professional sports doesn't go far beyond football.  It's the one sport I've kept up with since grade school.  One aspect of the game that I find unsettling, however, is showboating.  I can't stand tasteless celebratory acts, even when they're done by players of my favorite team.

Last night Antonio Brown burned a Redskin defender and scored a touchdown.  After the play, Brown did some sort of twerk/Kegel/pelvic thrust move.  That's how he celebrated.

It's real easy for an NFL game to turn into a circus.  For that reason, I propose that the league do away with the pre-game formality of playing the National Anthem.  Get rid of that solemn ritual; It has no place in a setting where grown men are going to act like brutes.
