So Long Football Saturdays!
Something great happened to me this past weekend. Every year, Auburn or Alabama has gone to the BCS Championship, I've painted the windows at my store with various spirit related logos. This past weekend, the windows were featured on every news network in my locale. What a great feeling it was to see my boss interviewed and my windows featured on t.v.! I'm still on cloud nine!
But with the arrival of the BCS Championship game comes the annual washing of the windows. :(
I'm mourning the end of College football. Soon I'll be mourning the loss of my windows. Art inspired by the talented men who form a BCS Championship team. Artwork that instigated odd reactions from customers and declarations while I was painting like: "Why are you working here? You're in the wrong profession!" "Do you hire out?" And the ever delightful cough and mantra from other team, "War Eagle" or, as in last year's Auburn trip to BCS, "Roll Tide."
With the season culminated by the AL vs LSU game, my Saturdays will not be the same. No, sir.
PRO football is winding down too. We are in the midst of playoffs, of which my beloved Tim Tebow (PRO football's Cap'n Jack Sparrow) and the Broncos will be participating next weekend against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.
No matter where your loyalties lie or whether or not you're a football fan, Saturdays are important days. More so when there's a good game on the tele. Basketball is a good sport, but I don't like to watch it on t.v. I'd rather be in the court. Same thing for Hockey. The love is better spread when you're a part of the crowd. Tennis, I'll watch anywhere. Can't wait to see Roger, Novak, and Rafael. Woot!
Congratulations, Alabama! Victory over LSU, 21-0! (Boss sent me out to paint more windows today.)
Who knows? Now that football season is over, maybe I'll have more time to write on the weekends.
What will you do without football? If you aren't a football fan, what do you do with your Saturdays? Maybe I'll get some good tips.
