26 Things You Can Do Instead of Watching the NFL

There are officially 26 weeks until the next Super Bowl, which will signify the end of another tournament of testosterone. Football is an American pastime and it consumes hours, days, weeks and years of peoples lives. It has even taken years off of people’s lives, as only repeated blunt force head trauma can.


The amount of genius that is spent dissecting the statistics of each player and coach, all the way down to how the field, weather and wind speed will affect the spin on the ball, could be used solving the worlds problems. Or at least making an attempt to steer it in the right direction.


With there being 26 whole weeks until the Super Bowl, and you may be thinking to yourself: “Self, what can I do to remain committed to social justice and not support toxic pastimes and institutions?”


Well, here’s a list of 26 things you can do each week to pass the entire football season and you’ll get all the warm and fuzzies inside for being a good person!!
