Well, the Super Bowl is this Sunday.
This also means I shall be a widow for about five hours. Well, a widow who serves food.
So, open thread question for today is, who will win?
Or these guys?
Enquiring minds want to know
These past few weeks I have been enjoying the college bowl games. I admit sports drama is kinda fun to watch. The Aggies managed to pull off a win, and t.u. managed to screw the pooch. I cried for the Tide, and for the first time in the history of this Aggie, I am rooting for Auburn to crush that Florida team.
I admit I am not well versed in the rules of college football. But there are some things that drive me absolutely batshit about them.
I do not for the life of me understand the whole “holding” penalty. I know what it is, mind you. I just don’t understand why it’s called on sometimes but not others. I guess it just depends on the degree to which one gets held.
And WTF is the matter with excessive celebration? They just scored a freakin’ TOUCHDOWN!! If they want to dance like a bunch of squirrels on acid, that’s on them and Instagram. That should be punishment enough.
Speaking of touchdowns, the one thing that REALLY pisses me off is that whole “crossing the plane” shit. No, just NO!! You want to score a touchdown, you get your feet and the rest of your ass INSIDE the endzone. If you are going to do that plane shit, why not add the sidelines and the first down to it? Ball crosses those planes, and it should count as going out of bounds or making the first down, respectively. Don’t be selective on crossing planes. Add all planes or none at all. Quit being pussies about touchdowns. If that “crossing the plane” shit was removed, scores would go from being 48-52 to being 10-3.
Ok, I think I’m done. I know y’all will probably roll your eyes at this post and try to explain things to me, but be advised: Hubby has tried for years, and failed.
And so did Emmitt Smith
Sadly, the Chicago Bears haven’t had their Honeys for years, so Baylor has to suffice. Enjoy your football Sunday
Osoloco had this at her social-site-with-faces page, and I had to
swipe creatively borrow it.
And where does your team fall?
It’s at times like this one when I think that we aren’t going to Hades as fast as I first thought.
Better have tissues ready, because I’m fresh out
They didn’t hug AT ALL.
I swear, who in Vegas ever thought of that stupid bet??
*forks over $20 to Hubby*
This Superbowl marks a very special occasion: brother versus brother. Not on the playing field, but on the sidelines.
And as usual, bets are flying all over the place. One bet is on how long the brothers will hug. The favorable time?
Now, I don’t about y’all, but that is a freakishly long time to hug someone. It borders on admirer-to-stalker level. Hell, I love my kids but I don’t hug them that long. Three seconds and they complain. Sheesh…
So, how long do y’all think is a reasonable amount of time to hug, especially male siblings?
Hubby calls bullshit on that bet
Whether y’all prefer collegiate…
We here at H&B hope y’all enjoy the
views games today!
Have a good one
It must be, because the kids were up early, Eldest is doing her laundry, Draco fixed coffee, and it rained here.
And still raining….
So, I am trapped here at the house, surrounded by the evils of Skyrim™ still, and wondering if I will be able to enjoy football later without hearing the operatic music from that game in my head. It’s doubtful. But it’s College Football Day, so the very least I can do is cheer for my team.
Have a great day
