The Football Game



The football players are getting like marshmallows.

The blockers squish.

The runners ooze.

The situation worsens steadily until the officials are standing there in the middle of a bunch of goo.

Players and teams are indistinguishable.

The commissioner is like a pudding in his seat and cannot be revived.

Angry fans surround the officials.

They speak of the money spent on tickets.

What are you going to do?

The officials are nervous.

There really is no provision...

And now, please indulge me while I pander to my bestie, Mama Zen....

Happy Saturday. Go, Sooners!

These players/coaches/etc. could use a hardening agent. It sounds like they are playing powder puff football.;-)
This girl is an OSU Beaver Believer. Go BEAVERS!!!

Go team! :) I like to hear the game on in the background, but don't much care who wins. Unless it is the University of Georgia. Go Dawgs!

I don't follow football at all...it never made any sense to me (is someone going to shoot me now? lol).

But whoever is playing and whoever wants whatever team to win, I hope it goes whichever way is best :)

The truth is I don't follow football at all, but I faithfully root for any team my friends like.

So now I see on tv that La Belette's OSU and bkm's Boise State are playing each other on blue turf. What's with that? LOL!
