Are You Ready for Some Football?

Finally. It’s here, and I could not be more excited. Much to my wife’s chagrin, it’s football season again. College, professional, high school – whatever. It’s going to be on, starting this week. Jana is thankful when looking at my fall schedule that I’m gone at least a weekend a month so that she can watch “Bring It On” or whatever. As for me, here are some important dates to have on your calendar:

Thursday, August 28 – The NCAA season opens. Not much to watch here, but I will be anyway.

Saturday, August 30 – The season begins in earnest with the first ESPN Gameday. A couple of games of note – Appalacian State vs. LSU. Can the underdog do it again? Then the headliner – Alabama vs. Clemson. Oooohhhhh……

Monday, September 1 – I feel obligated to list Tennessee’s first game here. Frankly, I couldn’t care alot less about the big orange. Sue me.

Thursday, September 4 – NFL Season opener. Redskins vs. Giants.

Sunday, September 7 – First NFL Sunday of the season. Jets vs. Dolphins. Favre vs. Pennington.

    I like that you listed Jana’s default movie as ‘Bring It On.’

  • Michael K. says:

    Might have also listed “Clueless,” “Stomp the Yard,” or “Bring it On… Again.”

  • Jana Kelley says:

    Hey, give me at least some credit. That’s not all that I like. I also watch Hugh Grant whenever possible.

  • Michael K. says:

    You’re right, Jana. My apologies. Funny to meet you in the blogosphere like this – do we still live together?

  • Jana Kelley says:

    This is kinda fun. You wanna meet over at my blog. We can continue this conversation over there.

  • Hoppe says:

    Yes. Football. Yes.

    Let’s have a party.


  • Dominic and Janna says:

    It’s really too bad that we don’t live closer to each other. Dominic and you are WAY TOO MUCH ALIKE! Every time I read your blog about movies and now football, it makes me aware of why y’all are friends! 🙂 Have fun watching football. I will be watching pointless reality shows and taking care of a new baby! HA! Janna

    Jeremy – I will pray for you guys in your post-McFadden life. God’s speed, Razorbacks.
