HOT AIR (football)

What is wrong with a country
when the amount of air in a football
is the lead story in the media?
What is wrong with a country
when press conferences are hastily called
to deny tampering with the ball?
Trouble in Paris or Nigeria?
Never mind. We only want to hear
what Brady and Belichick have to say.
Beheadings, kidnappings, murders,
please take a back seat to the
public outcry for suspensions and fines.
Footballs will now be monitored
with such special scrutiny
that large pictures of them
will banish other major news events.
Reporters will ask more questions
of quarterbacks and coaches than
they will of the White House press secretary.
What is wrong with this country?
We have squandered our sanity
for the air apparent.
