NFL Shocked, Just Shocked by Nudity on TV

Listening to NPR's Saturday All Things Considered, it seems like the NFL is doing everything thing they can to make sure that there is no repeat of Janet Jackson's nipple during the halftime. You know this country is getting really weird when one of the spokesmen of the NFL worries on air about how grateful he was that his 8 year old son didn't see the "wardrobe malfunction" because he didn't have to explain it to him.

Wow. Who ever knew that a little bit of nudity was so destructive to American youth? Boy, how many perverts were created by the flash of that nipple? And how many innocent 8 year old boys will be damaged for life from the sight of that offending nipple? Sure makes you understand why sex is more dangerous to the young than violence, especially the gratuitous displaying of a nipple on TV. Aren't we glad that the NFL is so attuned to the cultural sensitivities of our times?

Cut to the infant formula commercial - Ha Ha

I remember my first visits to a nude beach. Men and women seemed comfortable with themselves and entirely disinterested in public onlookers, rather than luridly seductive. I had no expections beforehand of Cancun naughties. Still, It was pleasant to be psychologically undisturbed by this modest public nudity.

Now football, on the other hand, is an obscene display of the most outrageous behaviors. I suspect football is a part of our national psychosis like NASCAR. The utter profanity, chauvanism, brutality, crass psychological manipulation, exploitation, the whole show is a monumental disgrace, an embarrassment to modest sensibilities.

American football is a little too much like war.
