Well, I am working on my love of the sport I should say. In high school I was a student trainer, I can wrap a mean ankle and, sadly, I think enjoyed my job a bit too much. . .look for injuries rather than really watching and learning the game. So, I have someone in my life who is not only enamoured with the sport, but sees it, of course, as a metaphor for life, so, in an effort not to lose large chunks of our time together, I am trying to learn up. I have to admit that the selection of books written with women in mind with decent instruction with a pinch of humor are SLIM in the football universe, but I do suggest my book of choice, written by Holly Robinson Pete “Get You Own Damn Beer, I’m Watching the Game”. . .I think the title says it all. Funny highlights, 10 things to never say to a man during a game, 10 funniest names in football and 10 greatest football butts. . .but there actually are sketches of plays and pretty much an explanation of everything football, enough so that “the man” was thoroughly impressed. So, I have “a team”, the Panthers, though they are long since out of the playoffs. . .and I was unable to find a cute little clip art for them, just this little man in a Redskins-esque uniform (I should get points for knowing that I think).
Have a great football Sunday, I’m at the office, wrapping up some work and then off to watch the games.
