Editor’s note: football season begins with the opening of training camps — but my usual eagerness to get things thumping is muted this year. I refuse to cheer on the Rams because they ran off to St. Louis, then skulked back expecting a hero’s welcome. The Chargers are… San Diego’s team. I cannot possibly huzzah for UCLA (sorry, bro — not!). My usual go-to team, the USC Trojans, is back in The Slough of Despond and the larger University is suffering from (cough) credibility issues. So should I support “America’s Team?”
