Fuck Football

It's another fall semester, and since football games are for some reason scheduled on the same day as CAINE's showings, it means that it's (entirely randomly!) extremely difficult for me to get to them.

Whether or not I can get to them depends solely on the kickoff time.  Ideally UVa should schedule these games as early as possible (10 AM kickoffs at the latest, no TV games) so as to not conflict with the vastly more important anime club showings.  And no, that's not sarcasm.

Sports, as much as you may or may not like them, are entirely superfluous.  Some would argue that watching television shows is also superfluous, but at least there you have variety and don't always have to watch grown men of questionable sexual orientation wearing tights and trying to wrestle each other to the ground.  I mean, if you want that, there's plenty of sports-related anime to choose from, with generally better action to boot.

Both football and our showings exist solely for entertainment of their respective attendees.  The only difference is, one is vastly overrated: Football.

I especially hate how the City of Charlottesville acts about it.  Football is the only thing that happens.  Nobody does anything on gameday other than watch football.  There's no other plausible reason anyone would ever need to be in the vicinity of the stadium.  If you're there on gameday, obviously you're there for the game, regardless of the truth or anything you say.  You are presumed guilty and not given the opportunity to prove yourself innocent.

Look, Charlottesville.  I don't care about football.  Your traffic direction is getting better, but still lacks respect to local traffic.  People have non-football places they need to go, and may not have time to cope with the random street and left turn blockages.

I just want to attend showings every week and watch anime with my friends.  What I don't want to have to do is miss hanging out with my friends and then be forced to catch up in everything we're watching.
