Yesterday, I watched football.
I watched it from the moment I got home from Stake Conference 'til the very last second ticked away for the Sunday Night Football game between the Pittsburg Steelers and the Cleveland Browns.
I chose a good time to start watching it, though I wish they would start games later so church wouldn't interfere. Oh well. Anyway, after I started watching, Peyton Manning (my future husband) and the Colts started playing better, tied the game, and eventually won. Next, I watched the San Diego Chargers lose to the Denver Broncos due to a technical difficulty (with the replay equipment) and a end-of-the-game miscall by the head ref that turned an obvious (you know it's obvious if I see it) fumble (retrieved by the Chargers) into an incomplete pass that kept the ball in Bronco hands. Even the less-than-inspired game between the Steelers and Browns was better than not watching football.
I love football.
I love watching it in my sweats, cuddled up in a blanket because it's kind of chilly, eating Whoppers (the candy, people, NOT the burger), drinking ice water, and shouting encouragement to the teams I'm cheering for.
Guess what I'm doing now. Yep, I'm watching Monday Night Football on ESPN, eating Whoppers, drinking ice water. Dallas is playing Philadelphia. I'm not a Cowboys fan, so I'm cheering for the Eagles. My roommate's fiance loves the Cowboys. It's fourth quarter and the Cowboys are up by 1 but looking like they're getting tired. Jeff's playing softball right now and is bummed not to be here watching the game with me. Little does he know that he's better off where he is because now Philly is up by 6.
My friend, Cardine, has a goal to go to a Monday night football game someday. Me, too. Actually, if I had my pick, I'd go to a Detroit Lions game on Thanksgiving Day (it's tradition that they play every Turkey Day). That would be awesome!
Is there anything better than watching football?
For you, maybe. For me, I wouldn't bet on it.
*This is where I should say something about my up-coming cruise post. I should tell you that I haven't even downloaded my pictures off my camera, just so you know not to hold your breath waiting for a cruise post.
