Football Season - It’s Almost Over…


February 3, 2009 with the playing of the so called “Super Bowl” in Arizona will be the official end of the football season for 2008.  It will be the last day for almost seven months I have to endure watching a bunch of goofballs with painted faces, stupid headgear, wearing dumb shirts with hard to pronounce names on them like Roethlisberger or Manupapoopoo, or dumbasses that change their given names to monikers like “Oucho-Cinco.”  Thank you, Jesus. 

The Nancy is the football fan in our house.  I can take it or leave it, mostly leave it, for a lot of the games that are played.  The Nancy will watch any game at any time.  I can’t tell you how many times this season she has stayed up long after I went to bed to watch the end of some game played between two teams she nor I give a healthy crap whether they win or lose.  Me, I need to have some skin in the game to be interested in it.

I will watch and enjoy West Virginia play (I live here).  I will watch and enjoy the Colts play (I rooted for them for years when I lived in Baltimore).  I will watch and enjoy the Giants (I lived in New York State).  I will watch and enjoy the University of Virginia play (I lived in Richmond, VA for over thirty years).  I love to see Ohio State, Notre Dame, LSU, Florida State, USC, Florida and a host of other schools and professional teams lose, but I don’t know why, probably because The Nancy is making me watch them when I’d rather watch something on the Food Network.

The end of the football season also has another meaning for me.  Just about sixty days further down the year’s road is the beginning of the spring season, my favorite time of the year – other than Christmas.  The downside of sixty days down the year’s road is that it heralds the beginning of the baseball season.  Next to football on my appreciation scale is baseball.  At least football has some action.  Baseball is like watching paint dry.  Cooking is so much more exciting than any sport, and at the end of the game, you eat.  That, I like.

And that is all I have to say about that…
