It has at long last begun. Football 2009.
In principle it started this past week on the smurf turf in Boise, ID in a contest ordained to be remembered for what took place afterwards the blunt Blount party -more memorable than anything that took place in the course of the 60 minutes of the game.
And currently the Steelers – hoping to turn into the 1st franchise ever since the Patriots to repeat – began their championship defense with a satisfying victory over the Titans to begin the 2009 football year.
I know I am not as fruitful during NFL season. Suddenly, I am only accomplishing stuff during commercials, if ever, on Saturdays and Sundays, plus Thursday nights, Friday nights, and Monday nights.
Then throw in fantasy football – which severely decreases the quantity of time I’d otherwise be productive, writing, or doing something prolific-and many more time than I care to admit will be devoted to this sport.
This time of year, I undoubtedly do not eat as well.
Wednesday night, I ate fish with steamed veggies and went for a swim after a 6 mile jog.
Thursday (game day), I had a super burrito, too many chips, too many, more chips, and watched the movie Max Payne after the game, before checking fantasy lines for Kerry Collins and then staggering to bed, bloated from the chips.
Do not understand if there are some football detox programs and even if there happened to be, I wouldn’t voluntarily partake. Hopefully my family wouldn’t stage any sort of intervention.
Fact is, I don’t want to quit, but as a Broncos lover that could change as the year progresses.
NFL and NCAA football are religion for a huge percentage of the population. We’re corn chip-eating cult members following the rantings of Chris Collinsworth.
So it’s on. The ’09 year commenced and, like it or not, my days won’t be the same until a month into 2010, when the natural NFL detox begins.
