How about not being bored out of my skull for the next 6-7 months when I am not working? Humans have always needed some form of entertainment, and I am not exactly a beach babe. Currently no movies are being made, no new TV shows, no sport is being played, not concerts, no plays, no neighborhood get-togethers, in fact no social gathering of any kind. Playing monopoly with my kids and World of War only goes so far!
As an aside, I think the players don’t get paid there is a regular season, so they might be a bit keen as well.
Edit: One of these days I will get the quite ting right. This is in response to why we NEED football.
