Dear Friends Obsessed with Football,
I know it’s THAT time again. I see you all in your special shirts  (and some of you with hats too).  I understand the desire to participate in an activity you love, really, I do. What I don’t understand is why you don’t understand that not everyone loves football.  At work I was gently reminded that I’m supposed to wear my college colors on Fridays.  The premise is that it will excite the students about going to college. I’m pretty sure though that it is just a secret plot related to college football. I’m not sure if my college had colors.  To be honest I’m not even sure if they had football.  I now live in the South, which seems extremely college football oriented. Maybe attending college in New England prevented me from developing this affliction?  I hope you enjoy the season, but please excuse me from the festivities. Thanks
PS: I wish that everyone could get that excited about academics.
