My husband is a very lucky man. Most men have to beg their wives to be able to give up days watching sports and barter to get ESPN turned on, but not my husband. I love sports, all sports. I willing watch ESPN, on my own, with no one forcing my. Name a sport, I’ll probably watch it. Baseball, yes. Basketball, yes. Hockey, yes. Golf, yes. Car racing, well, no. Hey even I have a line. Football, duh..of course!
Reason number two he’s so lucky, about a year and a half ago, we decided to remodel our basement. Behold….The Kerry Cave.
Football, oh glorious football. Oh how I love thee. If it is fall and it’s a Saturday or Sunday, I will be holed up in my Kerry Cave watching the Nebraska Cornhuskers (GOOO BIIIIIG REEEED!) or my Green Bay Packers (GO PACK GO!) and any and every other game I can find. If there’s a game on, I’m watch it.
Last season, when my beloved Nebraska Cornhuskers moved to the Big 10, I ordered digital cable the week before the season started, since a number of the games were going to air on the Big 10 network, which wasn’t offered on standard cable. I then ordered the sports package add-on, so I could get the NFL Network and purchased the Red Zone too. (In for a penny, in for a pound.)
Due to my addition to football (admitting it is the first step), I inherited my husband’s fantasy football team. He joined a league with a bunch of his college and work buddies close to fifteen years ago and was thrilled to be relieved of it. He enjoys football, but the hassle of maintaining the league just wasn’t his thing. He frequently skipped the draft and ended up with a crappy, computer picked team. Then he would forget to set his roster and, without fail, play guys who were injured or on bye weeks. I think he did a happy dance when he handed over the reins.
On draft night was last Saturday and I realized something, it’s a really a dirty minded little boy’s league, complete with raunchy names and all.
The name of the league is SOFA KING. Get it??? Some of the team names are Tongue Bathing Katy Perry and Balls Deep. Wanting to fit in, I renamed my team. So what do you think???
Go Pink Taco Go! Has a
nice umm, well, interesting ring to it!
