Never in my life have I enjoyed a football game the way I enjoyed this one! Maybe it was the big screen TV…maybe it was being surrounded by a bunch of hilarious people, most of whom actually cared about the outcome of the game… whatever it was, I found myself completely caught up in it. Maybe, because I know how totally crazy the people in my valley love our college football team, and how much it mattered to them, if not to me. I don’t know; but in retrospect, I realize one reason that I don’t care to watch sports is because I do get so wrapped up in it, that it begins to really matter…I seriously had a stomach ache by the end of the game! We won by one point, in overtime…. I was actually up on my feet, yelling, cheering… geez, what a nut I am! Of course, I am also a big supporter of the underdog, which we were, so I always enjoy a bit of the "ha-ha, in-your-face" kind of thing! (perhaps a New Year’s resolution should be ‘work on attitude’?)
I’ll be back later to give you all a run-down of my ‘very thrilling’ (think sarcasm here) New Year’s Eve and Day… but right now, I have some Christmas money that is just begging to be spent, so Kiki and I are going shopping!
