Football Is Back!

Wow what a week-end. Football is back for a new season.

OK. For all the folks in the rest of the world, I am talking American football. Folks back home in England may take me out and flog me. But I have become American enough to call football, football and the roundball game, soccer.

Two of my favorite teams were playing on our TV channels, Green Bay and Indianapolis. Don't ask me why a fellow from California likes teams from the mid-west. It is an official secret and to reveal the truth would mean instant death. Suffice it to say, I don't get to see many games with my favorite teams except in the instance of yesterday Green Bay were at the San Francisco Fort-niners, the local must support team, unless you are a Raiders fan from across the Bay.

One of the delights of owning a 60" (sixty inch) TV is I can just about make out the players helmets, for color and so know roughly which team is playing which way.

By the end of Sunday, I was absolutely worn out. Football is just so exciting and the season is so very short, in a little over three months it'll all be over and we will be looking to the Superbowl final games. Then a long wait through another summer.

No, won't run on with that. I'll just sit back enjoy the season we have now. What's for TV tonight? Monday Night football of course.
