This is going to be short and sweet! The fishing season is not officially over yet but, ladies, the FOOTBALL SEASON has started for me BIG TIME! Sometimes I ask myself, which you love the best. That is a very hard question to answer.

Sometimes I just can hardly contain myself when I am watching the game and my team is losing. It is really bad when the Hubby and I are not rooting for the same team. It really gets loud at our house.

For some lake people, especially the “old timers,” they love the “round ball” season. That has started on the lake but not for me. I love “that crazy looking ball that does not roll straight.” The big blue UK banners have gone up. They are on the houses, boats and golf carts. Just blowing in the wind.

I hate to say this but I can’t even tell you too much about basketball but I can tell you I had a ball the other night watching the STEELERS get beat by the BANGALS. I even felt sorry for Rothenburger when it took two big old guys to bring him down. Can you imagine what his mother thought when she saw her “little boy” being “man handled?” I don’t care what your son does for a living or what size he is or how old he is, he will always be your “little boy!” Am I right ladies?

The Hubby says I am a crazy football fan. I love either the quarterback or the coach. Sometimes I love both. The only problem I have is when one of my favorite teams plays one of my other favorite teams. Sometimes I cheer for both! You can bet I don’t lose that night.

I must tell you about the other night. You know I am always telling you about the Hubby’s addition to fishing. Well, he likes football. Now, I must say not as much as I do because if his team is losing he will simply go upstairs and watch a movie. My biggest problem is I will start to fade at the third quarter; especially if my favorite team is behind. Well last week my team was behind and my poor eyes were having trouble staying open so I told the Hubby I just had to go to bed! He woke me up to tell me that my favorite team won! Not only was I upset because he woke me up and I could not go back to sleep but I had time to “kick myself” about the fact that I did not try to stay awake to see the last half of the game. The next morning I heard all about it all over again. I told him I would not do that again. You know he had a big laugh out of that.

So when I was watching the next game, I was determined that I was going to stay awake. The Hubby got mad because our team was losing and went upstairs to see a movie. He is the kind of person that watches those westerns that are 100 years old. Anyway, the game was going pretty good, then about the third quarter I began to fade; then all of a sudden I woke up and our team was 10 points ahead. It was the top of the fourth quarter. I thought to myself, OOOOps, I must have dozed off a little bit. Well, the game got even more intense and I thought to myself, “man the Hubby is really missing out.” I thought I would go up and wake him up and tell him what he missed. But guess what, he was sitting in my favorite rocker watching the last horse go over the mountain. After I told him what he missed, he had to admit he goofed.

Just think, I can fish during the day and then watch football on Sunday, Monday and Thursday Night! Man, you would think I had died and gone to heaven. My life is so perfect it is almost scary. You can just know that I am enjoying every moment. OOOOPs, I mentioned that saying again.

I know one other person that’s worse than I am. She works on Sunday. She does not have access to television so I keep her up to date on the score via text messaging. That is no easy task. The Hubby just shakes his head. I told him he just didn’t understand. Women stick together.

It’s Monday Night again and I must go because my team is losing and I am not a happy person. Till next time, old TG says Bye now!
