Ladies, its here, finally. After months of anticipation, it has finally returned, and yes I agree with the old adage that absence makes the heart grow fonder. I was practically giddy last week when it made its return. It is here, and the next few months will be filled with hours of enjoyment. It is perhaps one of the the most stunning, artistic, and intense displays of human achievement. Its football season, finally! It seems like years since the bowl games and I have been craving football season. For me, there is nothing better than working out early Saturday morning, running some errands, then firing up the grill, having friends over, and sitting on my couch for the rest of the night to watch game after game. Ahhh, pure bliss.
College football is awesome! It is the epitome of sports for me. I like it so much because they are competing at the highest level, yet they have not become jaded by the glitz and glamour that comes with playing in the NFL. They play as a team and they play because they love the game. They are not playing for money (ok some are doing that illegally, but still), they are playing because this game has given them opportunities that might have otherwise not come up. They are playing for their school and their team, and they are playing with a passion that is driven by love of the game, not the endorsement or shoe deal.
These kids have just four short years in that environment. It is hard, confusing, fun, enlightening, scary, and thrilling all at the same time.
Tonight P and I just watched ND get beat by Michigan, and now we are watching Ohio play USC.
If you don't like football or have questions just ask, I will be more than happy to answer.
Happy football season everyone.
By the way, my team is LSU. They are big, fast, gutsy, and aggressive. Geaux Tigers.
