You can hate baseball all you want. Try hating football with a red hot passion and living in Texas. Yeah. Not fun. And I *hate* football with a red hot passion.
My in-laws (and basically all the native Texans I know) are just rabid
about football. AND I HATE IT!
We go to my in-laws for Sunday dinner every week and during football season I just sit and read while they yell and scream and holler around me.
