Something happened in this house tonight that has never happened in our home, to my memory. Todd and I watched football. Together. And screamed at the TV. Both of us!
I am decidedly NOT a football watcher, and Todd only watches football when the Steelers are doing well at the end of a season. But his buddy who was supposed to come over bailed on him, so I watched the game with him tonight for fun. (I had a book close at hand and read through most of the second and third quarters.) I was rooting for the Cardinals (if a mild interest can be described as "rooting") and he, of course, was rooting for the Steelers.
What a nail-biter, right down to the final minutes, though I was bummed that "my" team didn't win, since they'd made such a great comeback from behind. It was exciting, esp. that last Pittsburgh touchdown! Maybe in another ten years I'll watch another football game! But probably not. I'll watch a little of the rampaging and rioting that's undoubtedly going on in Pittsburgh tonight, and that will be enough to convince me that the football world is not my world. Fun game, though.
