It’s that time of year. Actually, it’s been “that time of year” since last August when football season began. And a line is drawn in my house. Between those who can speak the language and those who can’t. Because you can’t fake football. I should know. I have tried. Lord, how I’ve tried. But everyone can see it in my eyes. The fear. The blinding panic. I’m like the poor American clown in the middle of a cafe full of Frenchmen who are laughing at me because I’ve just mistakenly asked for extra nasal decongestant on my french fries.
Yes, it’s that bad.
Fortunately, I have friends who help keep me in line. Like Mel. She’s the kind of friend who will announce to the room “Oh, Michele. You are SO funny. Pretending to think that yellow line on the field was real. You really had us going there!” as she shoves a chip full of seven-layer dip into my mouth. God, I love seven layer dip. What’s not to love? The cheese, the guacamole, the …. what were we talking about again? Oh, yeah. Football! And, more specifically, the SuperBowl!
Which reminds me … Mel and I are hosting The Third Annual #FootballForWomen Twitter party. But you don’t have to be a woman to come play. And you don’t have to like or understand football. Hell, you could probably participate from inside a movie theater. But it’ll be more fun if you’re watching the plays, the coaches, the hairstyles, the wardrobe malfunctions and the insanely-overpriced-ad-spots.
So follow the hashtag and come laugh with us from Kickoff to the Final Curtain. (Oh, shut up, Mel. I can call it the Final Curtain if I want to call it the Final Curtain.)
And hey! While you’re here, why don’t you link up a post in our blog hop? You can link up any post! Just be sure after you link it you scream, “TOUCHDOWN, BABY!,” do a little dance and smack somebody’s butt. (cut to me rolling my eyes at your inhibition) Fine. Skip the dance, chicken. Just link-up, share the hop and #KetchupWithUs!
We hope to see you Sunday!
