Yeah! It's Friday! Here in the South TGIF takes on an entirely different meaning. Thank Goodness It's Football! You've seen Friday Night Lights? Well, it's pretty accurate. In the South football is life. Football season is like a holiday that lasts from the end of summer well into the winter. There are parties, we have football "outfits", and even songs (fight songs.) We send each other greeting cards that say things like "Have a Blessed Orange Bowl" or "Tuberville is the Reason for the Season."
Tonight my family is planing to attend a game between to local rival highschools. It should be quite an event. Aside from the action on the field, there's nothing like sitting in the stands with a bag of warm roasted peanuts in one hand and a cup of hot chocolate in the other. Sigh...is it 7:30 yet?
