Fall, my favorite season, was finally on the horizon! It meant cooler weather, cozier clothing and one of my favorite sports, football. My boyfriend had just moved in with me and, since I currently only had Internet and no cable, this was one of the first things on the list. I asked him if he would get my computer and go to www.TvByDirect.com to schedule an appointment for our cable to be set up. Since it was only pre-season, we had a little bit of time before the regular season started. I realized that neither one of my teams, college or NFL, were among the most talented of the bunch, but I was always excited to watch, regardless. That being said, I’m not sure if it was the actual sport or simply the atmosphere that contributed to my love of the crisp fall weather. Although I have made a valiant effort to learn more about the rules and regulations of football, I have to admit that I lean toward thinking it’s simply a side dish to the main course!


  1. Ruthi, it is so much more interesting to watch if you know a player, isn't it?
