I love NFL football. But we're officially on a break.
For years, I've watched beloved college players jet off to the NFL, and I continued following their careers, cheering on their successes on teams across the country. Back when I settled down in Kansas City for five years, I became a Chiefs fan, spending many a Sunday with chili on the stove and a beer in my hand, watching my team lose to various others in the AFC West.
But as much as I love the game, the history, the tradition, and, frankly, the routine, I can't do it anymore.
