NFL football starts today and I'm so ready for it to be here. I cheer for the Cowboys, I live in North Texas after all and am married to a rabid Cowboy fan. I hate certain teams, redskins, eagles, and the steelers (see didn't even capitalize them, not worthy of a Cowboys fan's respect). And living in Southeast Texas when I was very little, I have a soft spot for the Oilers from back in the 70's with Bum Phillips and Earl Campbell, Love Ya Blue. And yes I know they don't exist anymore. That's why the hubby thinks it's okay for me to have been a fan.
All that being said, I don't really care for football itself. If I'm going to sit down to watch a game it is more likely to be baseball or basketball. But football's arrival is always a welcome one. For one, it gives my husband a chance to relax, something he rarely does. But the big reason I like football...it truly is the start of Fall. My favorite season. That means in the next few months we'll have better weather, my anniversary, Jacob's birthday, the Texas State Fair and the big three holidays, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas. Days will rush by, there is always a feeling in the air of excitement, of what's coming next. People seem to be nicer to each other during the fall as well, I figure they start realizing that the Big Guy is watching (Santa) and they had better straighten up and fly right.
Football's here! Let the festivities begin. Oh, and don't forget GO COWBOYS!
Talk to you later.
