College Football—The bastard cousin of professional football exists solely as a refuge for aged frat boys and Southerners. Q A hypothetical scenario: A kid starts rooting for the Lions in 1998 at 8 years old. You Must Choose Your Team by the Age of Eight. Well, most of the time. The mere existence of pro football obviates the need for all other contests of athletic skill, yet these other sports parlor games, really remain despite their complete and utter irrelevance. Half the players in the league now require the services of an interpreter to tell fans to fuck off at least have the courtesy to cuss me out in my own language, Ichiro. Also great for newcomers to the game where have you been? Half the players in the league now require the ser­vices of an interpreter to tell fans to fuck off at least have the courtesy to cuss me out in my own language, Ichiro.

Q. & A. With Michael Tunison on 'Football Fan's Manifesto'

Something pointing out the good and bad of football Fandom. Somehow that seemed to resonate with people. Instead, humankind pissed away centuries occupying itself with the disgusting perversions of soccer and rugby before eventually coming to its collective senses. The game is dirty, violent, and ugly and meant both to excite us and make us a bit uncomfortable. I'd recommend any of the websites Tunison writes for unreservedly; he's a sharp, funny blogger, at his best when dishing out a few minutes' worth of scathing commentary on current sports happenings. Why is it considered funny to call someone retarded? And any sport that considers Bartolo Colon an athlete immediately gets bumped down to second-tier status.

The Football Fan's Manifesto by Michael Tunison

At the same time, Goodell autocratically attempts to curb our American-born right to enjoy football as loutishly as we like with an oppressive fan-conduct policy. At least the fatties in football can block. It always has been so, even back in the times when we hadn't quite realized it yet. These are the people who understand you, who spill beer on you and call you nasty hate-filled epithets in the parking lot. But I'm not; I read one book at a time to make sure I'm as immersed as possible in whatever the author's trying to make me care about.

I hope they get run over by a newspaper truck. The Football Fan's Manifesto is a humorous take on Football fandom in America, written by one of the co-founders of the irreverent, and therefore absolutely essential Football blog Kissing Suzy Kolber. These are just the basics if you wish to be a True Football Fan. This was not always the case. Problem is, it takes goddamn forever.

Why we abide by such unnecessary, quasi-athletic diversions when we have the game of football is a testament to our modern excess. Others may be captivated by one superstar athlete. Reading this book was like reading a 300 page fark thread. Sportsmanship is for the Athletes. When I pick up a book or open a newspaper I expect and hope to have my senses given a B-12 shot and have the author's words paint a picture in my head, or get me thinking about things I'd never really thought about.

Not to mention those whose leagues aren't teetering on the brink of insolvency. I give it a zero for one particular reason. In its ascension to the lofty heights of utterly ineffable awesomeness, the game has come to be littered with a multitude of arcane procedures, involved formations, and labyrinthine rules. During these dark times of despair, some of these lesser sports are all we have to stave off the clammy hands of adult responsibilities and a social life. The metaphor of football as warfare has always struck some as ridiculous, but in recent years it has become more apt, if only for the way armed conflicts and professional football are presented to us in increasingly sanitized ways.

Book Descriptions: The Football Fan S Manifesto Tunison Michael is good choice for you that looking for nice reading experience. Not that football isn't, but at least football fans don't make it quite so obvious. Wealth Doesn't Matter So Long As You Don't Have to Work Weekends. Aside from co-writing a screen play with Tucker Max, I don't think Tunison should venture off the web. Unless they play for the Rams. Professional football is the undisputed god-king of American sports.

Under no circumstances should you divulge those disgraceful enticements. No, because asking implies that you have an option. Under No Circumstances Can You Switch Teams And Expect to Live. I've got better ways to spend my time. Certainly nothing to get worked up about. The rest you should embrace.

An Inoffensive Fantasy Football Name is a Lame Fantasy Football Name. This book however was just another in an ever growing family that proves that what works on blogs doesn't translate into print. What matters most here is the timing. These are just the basics if you wish to be a True Football Fan. People can be excused for getting carried away when the team wins.
