For all intents and purposes, More Than Just A Game has been indefinitely taken off of Fictionpress. Sorry for any inconvenience and a huge thanks to all the readers.

"It's just a game." Was it? Football helped bring me closer to both my brother and my father. It was also the reason why I was accepted into the Academy, which was where I met Andrew, Luke, and everybody else. So it indirectly brought all of those people and experiences into my lifeā€¦ I had never really thought of it in that way before.
