They've only been driving without supervision for two years.
They spend most of their free time eating, playing COD, texting, instagramming or tweeting. You still have to make some of them brush their teeth everyday and remind them to put on deodorant. They still think the right Axe spray will land them a supermodel. And they know the name of every superhero in the Avengers because it's just THAT important.
It's hard to believe those huge athletic college men we watch, gamble on and spend 13 weekends a year cheering for are only kids. Some are 20, some are 22, but some are 18.
That's someone's 18-year-old kid, little brother, nephew, grandson out there knocking helmets with other kids. They're not at war. They're playing a game. And they will go left when they're supposed to go right. They will move before the ball is snapped. They will celebrate too much in the end zone. They will mess up and do the wrong thing. They won't take this as seriously as some of the fans and coaches. Did I mention that it's just a game? And that with almost every game someone has to lose and someone has to win.
But someone doesn't have to have an altercation with a player or fan from the opposing team...that's just fanatical.
