Tough times good for football and the Oscars

I am watching the Oscars tonight, and enjoying them more than I can remember in a long time.  I haven’t seen all of the films yet, but am still interested and intrigued.  I am also impressed by the range of talent, and new ideas, foreign and domestic.

This past fall I found myself watching NFL football with an interest and intensity that I have not felt since Roger Staubach was quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys.

I find myself wondering if in tough times, financial or otherwise, we appreciate that which takes us away from reality, if only for a few minutes.  Whatever the reason, how fortunate we are to live in America with great football and great films!!!
