Of course, given its throbbing, forced intimacy, basketball can be kind of sexy, but only in a sweaty, drive-in-theater sort of way. Hockey is not at all sexy, and is probably asexual. Baseball is merely fond and affectionate. If football is courtship, baseball is marriage. In fact, if you'll notice, while the TV networks always zero in on pretty spectators at football games, they only show shots of wives at baseball games.
Football is always sexy. Football is extremely sexy. In fact, between the mayhem and the tedium that is football today, football needs to be even sexier. Make love, not field goals.
