adversity.

Don’t get me wrong, I like football as much as the next gal. In fact, I’m very excited for the upcoming season. However, I do have one complaint; the overuse of the word “adversity”. I would like the football community to learn a new word.  Yesterday I was watching football and in a 3 hour period I heard the word at least 15 times. “This team has faced a lot of adversity in the past.” “Player X has overcome adversity in this game.”  It’s borderline embarrassing because it seems to be the only “grown-up” word this community knows and they’ve ALL latched onto it. Players, commentators, coaches and analysts alike. Pay attention and it will start to drive you crazy.

Hardship. Difficulty. Misfortune. Pick one.
