And Now A Word About Football
I like football.... I really like college football, specifically LSU football! I am also a Saints fan and a recent Texans fan. Knowing these things you might conclude that this was not the best week in my life, as far as "my" teams are concerned. It is not the end of my world and there are not global consequences due to the unfortunate losses by ALL of my teams this week, but man, did it take the wind out of my spirited sails. Coming in second or 6th,7th, or 8th in a season might seem less than perfect right now but it is not bad for a season's work....I guess.
After watching LSU lose and the Saints lose, TJ and I decided to record the Texans game today and play golf. We thought the golf course would be wide open during the game, and we were right! It seemed like the entire city had gone in to watch the game, there was no one on the course and there were not even any cars driving on the roads, these people are serious about their football team. As it turned out, we are very happy we took advantage of the mild January weather and played golf instead of wasting an entire afternoon only to see our team lose the game in the final minutes. It was a good game and made even better by fast forwarding through the commercials! I guess we are going to be forced to cheer for the Giants?! Whoever we choose to cheer for is destined to lose.....
