gimme an F! gimme an O! gimme an...oh nevermind

I am not the cheerleader. I'm the girl who actually likes football and watches the game. I can't be bothered with hyping up the fans; it requires looking away from the field. That's silly. Nevermind the fact that I have (much) more than 10% body fat and no real coordination.

Today is the big day! Although the NFL foolishly scheduled the actual first game of the season last Thursday, when no one was really watching. Including the New Orleans Saints themselves, who scored just 10 points to the Colts' 41. Only the Thanksgiving Day match-ups should be played on Thursday; who made this crazy decision? It threw everyone off. Do I have to be president of the NFL, too?

So, I've made my To Do list for today and unless you're one of my best friends or Tony Romo, or a pile of laundry that I can manage during 2-minute commercial breaks, get ready for some inattention. My mom found a magnet for my husband - "We interrupt this marriage for the football season." It's front & center on the fridge this morning.

And even though they relegated him & the Monday Night gang to ESPN, I still say Bring it, Hank. Yeeha.

I don't know who Hank is, or, frankly, care that much, because I suspect it's not Hank Azaria, who is, um...yummy. However, I do hope he brings it for your texas team, which is, I think, the Houston Hoo-ahs or the Texas Chainsaws or the South Padre Papas. Gooo Team. I will be cheerleader.

I am so proud to be among the few, the mighty, the cadre of friends.

Yay for me.

{Funny, I have a wall hanging with the same saying. For me. He was watching when I got home. *sigh*}

oh, girl, you know I wish I could like football. I would be a lot more popular with my husband......

I'm the same way. Football season is finally here, woot!!

We're Packers fans at our house, but had to go to a sports bar&grill on Sunday to watch the game because the local stations thought folks would rather watch the Viqueens play instead. Eye roll.
