Football is back.
Yes, it’s pre -preseason football, but it’s back and it’s new and all of a sudden, life feels a lot better.
Football has – as weird as this is to say – saved me more than once. It was there, every Sunday, through some tough times in my life. And for the three hours the Steelers play, things seem easier — clear. Comfortable, familiar.
But right now – despite my best attempts to stay upbeat and positive — right now I need football season. I need the black and gold of the Steelers. I need the rush of a well executed offensive play, the jolt of a powerful defensive stop, the frustration of a controversial play — but more than that, I need the three hours every week when nothing else matters. When life stops and football starts and things are simple.
I need that more than anything.
So thank God for football season.
