Super Bowl Sunday.

The good. It got here.

The Bad. It’ll take a year to get here again.

Speaking of Football. A pundit was speaking of brain trauma to football players. He said that ninety of ninety-four brains of ex-players showed signs of brain trauma.

And then he was asked who he favored in the Super Bowl and he eagerly spoke to Carolina. He was waiting the game with great expectation.

I can relate to all of that. Somehow, knowing that players know the risks doesn’t lessen my expectations to a good game where grown men attempt to inflict bodily harm on one another. Even watching players duck away from hits they know will be delivered doesn’t lessen the expectation of the violence.

NASCAR wrecks, football hits, boxing blows, and a sad realisation that kicks and blows of the octagonal ring are delivering the same damage doesn’t keep us from desiring more of the same, does it.

So we make provisions to care for the insane we create, the wounded and lame players and participants and seek the next Champion.

Then we make waves over:

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Kansas apparently won’t join several other states that have passed recent laws aimed at making it more difficult for domestic abusers to have weapons.

Have you noticed the number of women getting tried for Domestic Abuse with gun and knife lately?

About tenwhiskey

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
