It’s Football Day!

“It’s been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change gon’ come, oh yes it will….

“There been times that I thought I couldn’t last for long
But now I think I’m able to carry on

It’s been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change gon’ come, oh yes it will”

It’s feels good to be back in the habit (Sister Act 2).  With the first official NFL game happening tonight, all of America will rejoice unto the oblong-ball-heavens while champagne-unicorn-tear-drops fall from the sky and caress our wrinkled, bearded, over-served, mouth-holed faces.  FOOTBALL IS FINALLY HERE. 

That tingly feeling in your legs, arms and chest is the feeling of greatness and passion for the game.  It’s the feeling of prepared anxiousness focused on dominating your opponent.  But most importantly it’s the feeling of believing in something greater and larger than yourself, believing that YOUR TEAM is going to win and CONQUER and DESTROY.
