Visions of America: Football
They say baseball is America's pastime, but when I think of a sport that represents communities, that pulls people together, I always think of football. With only one game a week, and with that game on the weekend, "everyone" goes to or watches the game. Maybe its because I like in a town with no major league baseball team and a relatively new basketball team, but I just don't see the Zephyrs and Hornets discussed like the Saints are. LSU has won championships in lots of sports, but it is those BCS Championship posters I see hanging in offices.
