I Am Ready for Some Football

Oh the joy of opening Sunday in the NFL. I am beside myself.


Last year I spent opening Sunday in St Croix. That was fun hanging out at a waterfront bar watching whatever games cable fed you.


The bartender was a master remote operator. He would flick between NFC and AFC games to catch all the action and scores.


And like always there was one Jets fan in attendance.


I saw this morning that it is 45 F in Winnipeg. Too cold for me.


If I were a rich man I would be collecting my stuff in the guest bedroom now. Yes in my imaginary rich man world I would be staging for my 6 month hibernation to the island. Ideally I would exit this place sometime in late October and return in time for The Masters in early April.


I would love to spend the holidays on St Croix.


But I’m not rich so I must settle for 1 week a winter on the island I love.


152 days is a long time to wait but I must.

I love football season because it keeps everyone out of my hair for a few hours now and then. My son played football for years and I still don't understand all the ins and outs of the game. I give up.

If I ever win the lottery, I'll have a winter home somewhere nice too. Wouldn't it be great to be able to choose to live at each place only during the best months?

My fantasy football teams are just barely hanging on. Terrel Owens and Tony Romo are threatening to ruin my day!

You noticed! I was wondering who would make the first comment.

I noticed the picture too. It is good. Did I take it?

You sure did Judy. It was the wine paring dinner in St Croix.

I would like to start the start of football season over again. Can we do that?

Your panthers destroyed the Chargers, and I thank you.

My beloved Broncos need all the help they can get.
On a side note, shame about Brady, hey? ;)

P.S. I have Steve Smith in my fantasy pool, and I can't wait for him to get in the lineup!
