Professional football is weird. Believe me, I love it, but it’s still a bizarre concept. Sometimes, the sport goes against natural human instincts. Throughout the entire eight day period between the Minnesota meltdown and the Dallas destruction, all I could think about was how much I wanted the Bears to demolish the Cowboys. I got what I wanted. But now I’m a fan of the team the Bears just beat, because they play the Packers. And I must say, I think Dallas has a good chance of winning. Not only is the game at home, but Aaron Rodgers has been ruled out yet again.
I would never root for a player to get injured. But if an injury happens t0 a great player for a team I can’t stand, I would like for him to recover, but take as much time to get healthy as possible. I don’t want the guy to suffer severe pain and agony. However, he is hurt, and I’m fine with him taking a lot of time to return. I’d rather him be in the lineup and just happen to lose fair and square, but that’s not in my hands.
