It'd be a whole lot worse if it weren't coming back. Which it will.
It's probably a good thing actually to take a break. I know I love spending the entire day watching football and hanging out with buds, but it won't hurt to go without for a while.
When I really think about it, football actually consumed a huge part of my weekends and in some respects it will be nice to have more free time. I'm an early riser, so on pre-COVID Saturdays I'd be on the couch at 6AM watching pregame stuff and prepping food. Once the first kickoff hits I'm watching football non-stop until the last west coast games end at like 11:30. It was a long damn day. Part of it was also that with streaming services you can literally watch any D1 football game because they put up like 12 ESPNs, 2 BTNs, a bunch of Foxs, etc into the guide so you can pick anything you want.
When I was a kid you had maybe 4 games a day to choose from depending on where you lived.
Football does consume a large part of my weekends as well. I've done the 9am-11pm binge many times myself. It was the main reason I backed away from the NFL regular season. Had to take my Sundays back. But I still do love watching Viking and Packer games in a bar full of their diehard fans. In a macabre way watching playoff games Vikings vs Saints in 2009 and GB vs Seahawks in 2014 was about the most fun I've had watching a sporting event.
But I'm sure I'll find a way to occupy my time. It will be nice not having to plan around getting everything done by 11.
