Sunday Share: “Is It Immoral to Watch The Super Bowl?” by Steve Almond

“But if I’m completely honest about my misgivings, it’s not just that the N.F.L. is a negligent employer. It’s how our worship of the game has blinded us to its pathologies.”
A sentiment I’ve echoed before, but I really liked this article from last Sunday by Steve Almond.

“Don’t we turn to football precisely to escape such ethical complexities, to experience the joy of watching bodies at play, to pretend, however briefly, that life is just a fearless game?”

He asks tough questions that you might not want to read on a day like today.
