College football season has begun. Once upon a time, I would’ve dreaded this time. It was one more thing that took Ben’s attention away from me. This year, though, I am looking forward to it. Nay, I am encouraging football watching.
My thinking changed completely last year when football pulled me through the last month of contractions. Every night I would lay on the couch trying to find some comfort in the awful sensations that wouldn’t lead anywhere, and watch football with husband. It’s hard to hate something that you have bonded so close with.
So. This year? I was excited. Unfortunately, our mode of football viewing was discontinued when we changed internet service providers. As we don’t have a TV, we were stuck. How were we going to watch our beloved Cougars as well as the other 8 games during a week?
I came up with a solution. One that even shocked my husband.
I suggested we buy a cheap TV and get cable.
I know. I must have lost my marbles.
Anyway. My husband took me up on the offer. Last week, he found an awesome deal on Craigslist (or some on-line thing) for a $10 TV. He contacted the cable company and bought a very basic cable package for $20 a month.
In a couple of days, we will join millions of other Americans by watching multiple college football games at the same time. More accurately, I will blog while my husband watches football and provides a running commentary on what is happening. Since I am remarkably capable of doing four things at once, I will write, listen, watch, and comment without missing a beat.
And I will have an excuse to eat hot wings. I love hot wings.
