Stupid Post-Game Interviews

Why bother interviewing players and coaches after games?? The answers are always the same. My favorite:

Q: Coach, what did you think of [some player’s] performance today??
A: Courageous. The way he stepped up and played all four quarters – just courageous.

That’s not courage. Fire fighters, police officers, soldiers; these people are courageous. They face hostile environments. Football players do not face truly hostile environments. The field is not flaming. The opponents do not have weapons (at least not on the field – they’re not called the Florida State Criminoles for nothing!). There will not be bombs dropped from the sky and the quarterbacks don’t have to worry about there being enemy combatants firing at them from the concession stands.
