Sports Nuts

I stayed up way too late last night on the phone with a couple of sports nuts. You two know who you are! Lots of talk about football. And not the kind that I like to participate in... such as who has the cutest quarterback, or which team's uniforms have the prettiest colors. No, these two - you know what??? I'm just going to rat them out right now: It was the Follow That Star Crew, FTS and TSB. So I just put the phone on speaker, laid it down and made a vain attempt to figure out how to put pictures from my digital camera on the computer. Almost worked, but then I couldn't find the camera. My important mission last night was to show you pictures of my cat, Cowboy George and how someone turned him pink.

So I had no time to write anything original, but I did read something interesting yesterday that has to do with football. Maybe I could learn a little and be able to converse intelligently on the subject someday. Nah, not likely...

Football Fans Help This Guy:
Doug is tired of the same old, same old from football commentators. I suggested he start a list and he can present it to those sports talkin' dudes. In order not to get on Doug's nerves, I propose that each phrase can only be used only once per season. I'm betting he's going to need a pretty long list.

I probably should not make this admission, and it is probably un-American and anti-Texan, but I cannot become excited about football, or other spectator sports, for that matter.

Hey - how about another list and just put a number on each of all the trite, worn out phrases and then the trite, worn out announcers could just say the numbers instead of boring everyone to silliness. Just a thought. ec

I don't like cats that much, but I like them better than football.

I'm not into professional sports, and I certainly would not be able to have an interesting conversatin about any of the teams or players.
I do like the team colors of the Miami Dolphins though.
I've been to the semi-new baseball park of the San Fran Giants a couple of times. That was fun!

Whatever channel Joe Theismann is on gets the old silent treatment (mute) button from me. That guy rattles on incessantly...rattle ...rattle... rattle...

Hey, I didn't know till today you had a daughter b**gger. She's cute, but besides that she's a good writer, with head pretty straight on. Congrats.

You provided me with a wealth of things to blog about last night, but I think I'll just sit on them for a bit. Never know when I might need something "in the bank." ;)

For sure I'll need a huge list. I mreddie's idea for a list too.
As far as Theisman goes, that whole crew on ESPN is annoying to the max.

I just roll my eyes shamelessly when talk turns to sports. I can't even pretend to be interested!
