Recently I've found myself, intentionally or otherwise, in a number of situations where a game of football has been persistently and unavoidably within my gaze. I used to like watching football when I was younger, but gave up when I was around 11. Recently though, I've found myself incontrollably starting to enjoy it again. So should I start trying to regularly watch games? What benefits are there are of being a football fan? Do I have to have loads of boring conversations about metatarsal injuries? Am I over-analysing this?
