The Slice

Zero football-game attendance

Recently overheard a conversation between a guy who is a huge college football fan and a young woman who recently finished college.

Can't recall what he said to prompt her. But she volunteered that she had never attended a football game while in school.

He managed to refrain from calling her an unpatriotic American. But clearly, he was baffled.

That can happen when you assume your interests are universally embraced.

Can you recall being around someone who suggested “Ya gotta love it” when you, in fact, found “it” to be a total bore?
