Football fans like myself really look forward to the NFL playoffs. I love high school ball, but that ended long ago. And the college system is so disjointed, I lose interest. So, this past weekend, we got down to the NFL’s Final Four, and that might be enough for me. The trash talking, finger pointing, and taunting this past weekend, by the 49ers and Panthers in particular, has soured me on the rest of the playoffs. Steve Smith, Anquan Boldin, Colin Kaepernick all took turns making plays, and then becoming complete morons. Their antics show a lack of sportsmanship, and a lack of respect for the game that they play and real superstars that played before. After all, I don’t recall Joe Montana imitating Superman in a mocking endzone celebration…and some games, I believe he was!! So I’m done with the NFL…just in time for the high school and college basketball season!
