Religious New Year

Religious New Year

Millions of devout Americans celebrate the Religious New Year this week.

Not Rosh Hashanah. Not Enkutatash. Not Bestu Varas. Not Fashion Week.

It’s NFL Kickoff Week.

 “This then is the sporting equivalent of Holy Week, the start of another season.” — Michael Wilbon.

 “Football: America’s national religion,” Chad Gibbs, Washington Post blog.
