After watching a good portion of the second half of the BCS championship matchup between Alabama and LSU, I can only confirm what I’ve always thought: college football (and even more broadly, college sports) pales in comparison to its pro counterpart.
Yeah, yeah, I know the counterarguments. There’s more team spirit and passion among the fans. There’s more team play. Maybe even the rules are better. And other such things. But to me, if I’m going to spend several hours parking myself in front of a TV to watch people play a sport, I prefer they be the best at it. And watching college football players miss point-after-touchdown attempts is not my idea of time well spent.
I will now go back to watching cat videos on YouTube.
