Football Season

I love football...well, I use to like football...ah, who am I fooling? I hate football. At one point in my life I actually had myself convinced that I liked it. I like the idea of football. I have great memories associated with it.

For one, when I was in high school, that was the highlight of the week. I went to the games and saw all of my friends there. I went to every single football game. I know this for a fact since I was in the band. I loved Friday nights.

For two, most of my friends when I was in high school and college were guys. They watched football. If I wanted to fit in, I had to watch it too. Looking back, I don't understand why it was so important to be one of the guys. I guess maybe because I could.

For three, my mom is a fan of football, and my paternal grandmother was too. So, I thought it was in my blood. nope, it's not.

However, did you ever watch the Disney movie Invincible? It's based on a true story about Vince Papale. Love it!! Mark Wahlberg is so hot!

I don't get American football or the British variety (soccer) either.

Is that film anything to do with football .. or is it there to take our minds off footie?

Oh, the movie is about football. I was leary about watching it at first, but I really enjoyed it once I did.
