A lot of people in the United States take things way too seriously. The fact that fantasy football is a multi-billion dollar enterprise is all the proof of that you’ll ever need. But we live in a nation of Puritan serial complainers - have too much fun, someone’s bound to complain about your awful work ethic and morals. We, of course, have neither a work ethic nor morals, so we hear it all the time - such is the life of the blogger.
As much as uptight cultural crusaders love to complain about everything here in America, can you imagine what would happen if they caught wind of an editorial suggesting that religion be replaced by sports? Rush Limbaugh’s head might explode. In Ireland, however, that’s exactly what’s happened.
