football! already?

Anybody who watches three games of football in a row should be declared brain dead. Okay no rioting, I did not say this first. Erma Bombeck said this ages ago. It just happens to still hold true. hehehe

Don't get me wrong, footballs great-for about five minutes. Then I've had my fill of looking at the guys butts in those tight uniforms. But then the refs walk away and there's nothing to look at other than the football players huddling.

Seriously what is so fun about twenty-two guys running around after an inflated pig gut. They run one way-then they run the other. Then they run one way-then they run the other. For THREE hours this goes on. And then the next game comes on! It never ends!

I am so going to get it after this from my family. My brother was the star quarterback for years. I grew up with football twenty-four/seven till they finally gave me a t.v. for my bedroom. I rejoiced! It only took sixteen years for them to come to the realization that I wasn't going to grow into liking football.

Don't get me wrong there are several things I adore about fall. It's just funner to tease my family about their obsession. They have a football competition every year, with a trophy for the winner. Every week they all pick whose going to win what game and tally it up till pro-bowl season.

I tried to play but I figured out halfway through the season two things.One I didn't have a chance in Hades seeing has how I knew nothing about the teams. And two I didn't care. But listening to them talk about it and rib each other is enough for another blog altogether.

Then there's the fact that a season is supposedly like thirteen weeks. Bah! That is such a lie. First you got pre-season. And everyone gets in a tizzy about how their team is going to do. Does pre-season ever really indicate how good the team is going to do? Not according to the men I know. Their team saved the best plays and players for the real season. Element of surprise!

Then comes the real season. One week your team is going to the SUPERBOWL next your ready to jump ship. Unless your a Chiefs fan than your just someone who lives in Dissapointment Land. (I am so going to get reamed for this. But it's so worth it.) You never really get out of that rut.

Then there's the post-season. Every bowl known to man. Not to mention one's that make you go they named something as masculine as a football game after flowers. I know my man is all about roses how bout yours? It never ends it seems.

And then blessedly baseball begins. Somebody shoot me already?

Authors Edit

It has been brought to my attention that the season is not thirteen weeks, but sixteen weeks with talk of extending it to eighteen next year. yay. (read sarcasm)


  1. I'm the same way, I don't understand/like football (or any other sport for that matter) but luckily my husband is the same way. However, he likes video games and you what that means: the whole year is video game season! There's always a new game coming out.
    Still, he can always press "pause" when playing, but can you get your hudband/dad/brother/etc to do the same when watching a game?

  2. Unfortunately NO! Although I have tried several ways to distract or sabotage the game. I wish Honeybear was one of those guys who's really supersticious (that is spelled so wrong) then I could really screw with him.

  3. Uhm...I like football, but..I don't watch it as the tv isn't connected to cable or Sat to get a signal.

    And by the way,
    THE SEASONS are:
    Football,(pre,regular,post and bowl)pro&college

    Basketball (same subset as football)pro&college

    Hockey (same subset as basketball)pro&college

    Baseball (same subset as Hockey)pro&college AND LITTLE LEAGUE/PONY LEAGUE

    And like the weather, they overlap each other.
    So now you know. lol It's all just a plot so they don't have to mow the lawn or do chores.

    Sort of like shopping to a woman. Only they'll tell you THEIR sport(s) are FREE. (Well, if you don't count the refreshments, team memorabilia, cable bill or tickets to see the game and gas to get to the game. And don't forget medical if they PLAY the game. lol)


All my city slickers tell me what ya think.
