Want non-violent & hands-on football experience on #SuperBowl Sunday?
On Sunday, February 7 at about 5 to 5:30 pm: join in on a Superbowl halftime recreational football toss in the Marina; near Chestnut at Buchanan Strees; behind Moscone Recreation Ctr on the grass playing field north of it.
Take a break from watching the Superbowl during half time in San Francisco's Marina (or skip the game altogether!).
Toss a football around in the sunshine and fresh air! And in doing so, "walk the walk" of SF values: peace, love, compassion, creativity and fun vs. the money, power, violence and injuries caused by tackle football!
Bring your own football or join with others who've brought theirs.
This event asks the question: Is the Superbowl consistent with San Francisco values?
Professional football today appears to celebrate not so much the core game of throwing, catching, running and kicking a football, as it does money, power and violence that damages the brains of its players. And that is the template for all levels of football in this country.
The San Francisco I know and love embraces peace, love, compassion, creativity and fun. While the football extravaganza is in town, I hope that San Francisco values rub off on it. Imagine football evolving into a sport over time that does not permanently damage the brains of its players. Imagine the ripple effect of a non-violent form of football on American society and values.
So on Super Sunday, get out into the sunshine predicted for that day and throw around a football with friends, family, neighbors and others. And hope for the evolution football into a more humane game.
