As with everything else these days, America’s passtime has crossed into the Land of Oz.
NFL games begin with a fake national anthem. Fake spectators in the stands don’t care, but we can still hear their fake cheering.
As the players begin their fake punts, fake field goal attempts, fake hard counts, and fake passes, cute sideline reporters with fake blonde hair offer fake insights.
At home, mindless fans in their fake jerseys play with their fake teams whle chowing down on fake food.
During breaks serious looking talking heads breathlessly spew fake news. The news happens in Washington DC, where the Pro Football Network asks: “Is the Washington Football Team for real in 2020?”
Any wonder we’re suffering massive cognitive dissonance?
