Every year it’s the “ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL???” question that’s thrown around.
And I am SO not ready.
But I’m getting there.
Hubby and I were planning to go to the Mets game all along, on Gameday one for the NFL (though technically it DID start last Wednesday).
I had planned on writing this prior to going to the game today, but wasn’t in the mood to start up the computer (it was the Sunday morning after doing a 15 mile training run). This is how lazy I am getting.
So we go to the baseball game. But for good measure, I wore my Jets shirt. You know, to be a good football fan. Maybe THAT would get me in the mood to deal with things.
But then I managed to get bits and pieces of the game throughout the baseball game. Funny, the stadium was practically empty, and the only time the crowd got roused up was when they posted updates on the Jets game.
Then when it was over, I was happy. The Mets outcome was almost secondary.
My husband is a Seahawks fan. We decided to head to a local bar to watch the game.
Our first stop was a local British pub that is a Mets-friendly bar, and the bartender told us that every Sunday the NHL package shows all games. Till we realized that it was a Panthers bar. Moving right along, we find another bar that has only ONE television on the Seahawks/Cardinals game.
That about did it.
So if I wasn’t ready for football yet, I am now. All in all, the sports day could have been better for me. The Mets could have won, and my husband could have gone home happy instead of disappointed that the Seahawks couldn’t win.
But it was good to see that I could turn it on in a flash. I mean, it’s one game a week. I can handle that. I think.
