Hermeneutics of the Red Zone Blitz
“Did you see this quote from Jerod Mayo?” Spence says.
“Better tell the people who he is,” Admin says.
“Jerod Mayo is a linebacker for the New England Patriots,” Spence says. “He’s the defensive captain, the one with the green sticker on the helmet, meaning he hears transmitted instructions from the sidelines. Anyway, here’s what he says about playing in big games, like the one on Sunday: ‘Child-like joy. It’s all about child-like joy. Last night felt like the day before Christmas for me and I haven’t had that feeling in a long time.’
“So you’re going to tell me that it’s the childhood aspect to sports that draws the fans?” Admin says.
“Something like that,” Spence says. “And that’s why so many people envy the players and would like to be them. At some level the players never had to grow up, never had to lose something child-like in them in order to succeed – or simply survive – in life.”
“Uh-huh,” says Admin. “So enough with the deep thoughts. Who you got in the Super Bowl?”
