Bad first: I rarely ever watch football and I don’t really follow or call myself a fan of any given team. But today, feeling under the weather, I settled in and watched the New Orleans Saints play the Washington Redskins. It was a thoroughly entertaining game, the likes of which I haven’t seen in years. And then, as the Saints appeared to possibly make a comeback with less than two minutes remaining on the clock, FOX decided to cut from that game to the 49ers/Seahawks. Unbelievable. I found out later that the Saints did make the comeback, and it must have been something pretty incredible to watch. Sadly, I was watching a pathetic opening to another game that I couldn’t care less about. So lame.
Now the good: I’ve only been to one real college football game: a Nebraska Huskers game while visiting my wife’s home in Nebraska. It was a lot of fun. We just bought tickets to the bowl game they’re playing on the 30th and then spending New Year’s Eve down in SoCal. Should be a lot of fun.
