7 Things You'll Only Understand If You Don't Like Football

I guess football is just not meant for everyone.

7 Things You'll Only Understand If You Don't Like Football

Football. The all-American sport. If you are like me, it makes no sense to you. Seriously, why do people enjoy it so much? All I see are a bunch of grown sweaty men beating the crap out of each other for an oddly shaped ball. Granted, that being said, countless people all over the country watch it so there must be some desire and enjoyment behind it that I'm clearly missing.

1. For starters, you just can't wrap your head around why the game is so popular.

Like seriously?! Do people find it fun to chase a ball and tackle people?

2. You dread it when people ask you to talk about/watch/play football.

The answer is no, no, and no.

3. People assume you're clueless just because you don't like it.

Let's get this straight. I said I didn't like football. Just because you don't like something doesn't mean you know nothing about it. In fact, I understand football for the most part (minus some of the technical terms) which is why I don't like it.

4. You get a little shocked at how emotional people get over their favorite team.

Okay...maybe you do the same thing if you think about it. For example, I may get too into the relationships between the main characters in my favorite TV show.

5. Just because you don't like football, people assume you don't like sports in general.

Come on people! Just because I'm part of the small percentage of football haters doesn't mean I'm a sports hater. I actually enjoy playing plenty of sports. Football just does not happen to be on that list.

6. You probably just go to Super Bowl parties for the food, to watch the halftime show, or just to hang out with friends.

Did you actually think we would come to a party to solely watch football?

7. When you meet someone who also shares a mutual dislike for football, you automatically become best friends.

Us anti-football people have got to stick together you know.

If nothing else, I hope you can get a few laughs from this.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
