I Understand Now
My guy loves football, especially college football. The whole world stops for his college team. We go to the games right here in our city and now we go to the away games as best we can. We wear our team's colors on game day. Jack wears the colors on the golf course and just about everywhere else. I am his football partner he claims. I smile and give him a big hug, but I am somewhat fair weather about the games as the season enters the cold weather. I support my guy and his love of the game. I pay attention to the game nuances. I know what the calls mean and the strategies involved. I have attended Jack's football school right here and passed his exam with flying colors.
We were attending a big bowl game and our team was in that great position of being the underdog to this mighty foe. We had just returned from a gathering of football fans. We had watched an excellent film featuring many top level teams. Cheering, tackling, scoring, military aircraft soaring overhead....... and all of a sudden, I realized how the football fans, the BIG football fans were all nearing the end of a long season that began way back at the end of August. Both pro and college seasons end very soon. Pro season will end with the Super Bowl at the very beginning of Feburary and then nothing, all gone. No more football for months. Good grief, the men of the nation and those women who love them are forlorn. I saw the faces of the men as the lights went on in the little theatre we were in. They looked downright lost knowing that the end was very near.
We are home now. Yes, the pro season is nearing its end as well. We are inching our way to no more football. So sweet L sent me this photo. I wonder where she finds these things. I intend on following the advice featured in the photo. Making every single halftime extra special will make my football guy very happy. Give it a try at your house. Hooray for halftime.
Thank you, L.
