(I had to quote the Waterboy!)
With the start of (American) football upon us, I was laughing this past weekend when a friend and I were remembering a KM school we attended.
The visiting "brother" (Losch) basically went on a tirade against sports, but specifically football. You would have thought that watching an NFL game was akin to sitting in Ancient Rome cheering on the lions in the colliseum eating Christians. You could tell he hated sports in general, because he even blasted some sports like basketball and tennis.
We were all pissed off at the time thinking that they were going to start coming down on JW's from watching football and other collision-type sports. I immediately said that I would give up my "privileges" if they started telling me that I cant watch football, hockey, etc..... My buddy said not to worry, that most of the other GB members at the time were HUGE football fans. I know there are some that are bothered by the physicality of football, but most of the male JW's I know love their football.
If they ever wanted to see the male membership disappear, it would be to start counseling people against watching football.
Any one else have that experience?
