Football has meant a different thing to me for the past five years. Since getting involved with the NFL as part of my profession, I don’t see it the same way people do.
Some call today Christmas for them. Others think it’s the beginning of something fun. I always saw it as work and this year it’s no different for me. I may not be covering one team, I’m looking after all 32 teams.
But I don’t think I will ever have the same kind of enthusiasm as I did when I was a kid with this sport. Because everything that happens is related to work, that’s how I feel about it. It’s always going to be another thing for the job.
