At this time of year, I wished I loved football. I blame it partially on living in Detroit when there has been very little to cheer about for the last half century. But it must be fun to be interested in the games, to swell with pride at great plays or anger at bad ones for these months. I think I have it in me to like football but you really need to have a team to learn the game with.
What do you wish you enjoyed more? What widely held interest eludes you?
