The started today, so football fever has returned to our house. By default I am a fan–it is the path of least resistance, as they are the team favored by the other adults here. I have never followed a particular team, just wandered from team to team with a chosen player. So when said player retired and became a broadcaster, I was player-less.
The Chargers won tonight’s game by a wide margin (27-7) over the Dallas Cowboys. And the ’49ers (favored by my husband-who-lives-across-town) lost horribly. (Although he reminded me that this was merely the pre-season, and didn’t really count.)
Welcome to the National Football League.
