(American) Football Season!

I’m excited.

Football season is upon us. My weekends will now be full of what has become the new favorite sort in America. This is probably my favorite sports time of year.

Most weekends will now be full to the brim with Football. Fridays are High School Football. The area in which I live is a BIG Football area. Lots of games to choose from, or I can just go to the closest one, which happens to be The Wife’s alma mater.

Saturdays are full of College Football. Games start around noon EST, and go pretty much the rest of the day. I rarely miss my team, THE Ohio State University Buckeyes. I will sometimes go nuts and watch lots of other Football too.

Sunday is usually bittersweet. Between my Cleveland Browns being… well the Browns, and my Fantasy Football team frequently disappointing; I’m excited for Football Sundays but I typically end up annoyed by the end of the day.

Who cares what happens? This is Football season! That means cookouts, campfires and Football parties. It means cool weather, crisp air, and outdoor sports. It’s all the best parts of Autumn combined with friends and Sports.

Definitely my favorite time of year.

Who Writes Short Posts? I Write Short Posts!

Well, today anyway. I know most of my posts here aren’t really what most people would classify as ‘short’.

Tonight, I will be busy! While I’m sure I would have a tiny bit of time late, why put it off? Tonight is a baseball game!

We’re going as an early present for The Wife’s birthday. She’s a big sports fan, and she is actually totally responsible for any sports enthusiasm I might exhibit. Baseball is definitely her favorite though. She could live without pro football, and basketball is a take it or leave it activity  for her. She enjoys college football quite a bit, but nothing beats baseball.

So that’s where we’re going tonight. It’s a lot of fun going to the game, but it’s just far enough away that we don’t get to go as often as we’d like. They are really trying to keep cost down, so that really isn’t as big a deterrent to us as the time. We both just get pretty busy right around this time of year, and between the drive there, the time at the game and the drive back, sometimes we just can’t make it. Especially since if we want to be on time, I have to leave work early. I can do that sometimes, but not as often as we’d like to go.

Quick subject change, remember yesterday when I said I might have a surprise for you? Well I do! But not until Monday. Mwahaahahaha. Remember, don’t actually peel your eyeballs. I’ll feel bad. Do, however, get totally excited for Monday’s post.

On that note, I will see you next week!
