ON THE BACK BURNER

Nov. 17

It's another night for football. I didn't realize that there are so many teams. Enough to have football three nights a week. The advertisers must be in profit heaven. When I watch the evening news at 6, the ads are aimed at the chronically sick. Ads are the kinds that tell you to ask your doctor to prescribe their medication. When did I go to medical school? At the football games ,I get beer , cars and fast food. All things I can live with. I like the football ads. Especially around the Christmas holidays when they are so "feel good". One thing always has me on edge when I watch the players run onto the field as they announce them. What if they trip and fall. On national TV. Would their teammate  just run over him, or stop to help him up, or worse fall , as in a domino effect. I worry about these things. I hope that I don't have to ask my doctor for a pill for this worry I have.
