Minnesota called, and...

I'm glad that football season ends today.  I can see the light at the end of the proverbial tunnel, since the playoffs only last for 14 weeks or so.  I figure that by Easter, the Super Bowl will be over and we'll have about a week before training camp starts. 

No, I'm not a fan.  I don't really hate football, either, I'm just indifferent. But by week 17, the indifference is definitely tinged with just a touch of hatred mingled with profound tiredness.  Plus, I'm married to a Redskins fan.  I can only stand so much spluttering outrage at a time.

I started another post last night, when we got home from Philadelphia, but that's not going so well.  It's just one of those times again.  I want to write something, and my usual method of combatting writer's block, wherein I sit in front of the computer until something occurs to me, is also not yielding results.  So that's why you get to read mild complaining about football and weather.  Did I not mention my hatred of this vile weather?  Consider that whine served, chilled.

I have no earthly idea what football is all about. I avoid it. I pretend it doesn't exist and drink a cold beer and watch a movie or do something that ISN'T excruciating. :)

I have nothing to write about either. Not that it usually stops me. I just ramble. I seem unable to stop myself. Ah well.

Here's to a more football free new year for both of us.

on writers block, try challenging your brain in a totally different way - yes, silly stuff to follow - but....write the alphabet with your left hand (assuming you are right handed), go ice skating, pretend to be 12 different animals for 60 seconds each with the children (yeah, by the 8th one you have reached the creative zone), eat an entire meal with a knife only (not too sharp), do 50 jumping jacks followed by skipping around the block. igniting new areas of the brain may spark some of the old areas.

Sorry for the suggestions, but love your writing!

I am not much of a sport fan either. I am blessed to be married to a man who is indifferent to sports.

Have a nice Monday.

I understand football and enjoy watching it to a point. But I don't really like the pro version of it, and that includes these college teams that are really pros. I like small time college football better but of course that's usually not on TV.

Generally I prefer baseball so the winter seems very long!

One of the thousands of reasons I love Hot Brazilian so much is that he hates all sports. My ex-husband used to watch every sport you can think of. I'm pretty certain he didn't even really like some of them but watched them simply to annoy the crap out of me.

I hear you about the football. I just don't get it. And, since I live in Wisconsin and my parents and two of my sisters have Packers season tickets, I have to listen to the whole Brett Favre saga, which I so don't understand.

And yes... writers block. It sucks.

I've got the writer's block as bad as I've had it since I started. I actually wrote about football today.

Pray for me.

On the other hand, the other blog is just rip and read from the tabloids, so it very much writes itself. Fun!

Veggie--I like when you ramble, especially when you've been drinking.

Angela--those are great suggestions. And thank you!

Saiorse--My husband loves all sports, in varying degrees.

Mauigirl--I love baseball, too. Just another reason to miss summer.

SS--so I guess the stereotype that says that all Brazilians love soccer is wrong?

VS--Oh my gosh, surrounded by Green Bay fans. My sympathies.

Matty--I will pray for you, as a matter of fact. And I like the new blog!

This is high season to bitch about sports because there is overlap of football, basketball and hockey. It's maddening and it seems never to end.

I thought tonight would be a nice break from sports but find I have been driven from the den by Hitler.

Your blog keeps getting better and better! Your older articles are not as good as newer ones you have a lot more creativity and originality now keep it up!

HB might be the only Brazilian who does not love soccer! When I was down there visiting in September he stated over and over how much he hated soccer because (and I quote) "my entire country stops everything whenever a soccer game is on tv". And it seemed to be true. HB loves work and getting things accomplished. The Brazilians in the town I visited seemed to love soccer much more than they love to work - they all go home at 1:00 or 1:30 every single day (which is one reason I could see myself living there quite easily).

CDP said...

Lady--it's high season to bitch about everything, isn't it? I hate January. Blah.

Anon--thank you!

SS--I heard that about Brazil (that everything stops for soccer). So I guess they're even crazier than we are.

I'm so uninterested in football it's funny.

I can't imagine being married to a football fan. I admire your intrepid loyalty. :)
