49ers Beat Colts -- Preseason Bettors Rejoice!
|A great tackle by ... that guy!|
I understand the motivation behind exotic piercings. I understand kite surfing. I understand having dangerous animals as pets who are incapable of expressing gratitude or affection. I cannot understand betting on preseason football.
For 85 percent of a preseason football game -- and, in the preseason opener, perhaps even more -- men will be lining up across from one another that both coaches pray will never be playing a crucial snap all season long. Top starters sweat out only a series or two, if that, and soon give way to the second-, third-, and fourth-stringers playing for their professional lives. The only resemblance a preseason opener has to a standard NFL game is the uniforms -- and yesterday's contest didn't even have that. The Colts were decked out in nondescript 1955 throwback uniforms that looked like something you'd find on a Pee-Chee folder.
