Well, I think I am sort of recovered from the first weekend of college football. Except for the fact that Laef and I are going to the UCLA vs. Tennessee game tomorrow in hopes that the Bruins don’t pull a Washington.
Speaking of Washington: Thank goodness they were that bad. It took the talk off of Coach Bellotti’s goatee. Now the only two grown men I know with a goatee are Bellotti and Art. I don’t exactly want Coach Bellotti lumped in with the other father figures in my life.
I can’t lie. I woke up at 7:30 a.m. yesterday to watch College Gameday. We had a Costco-sized bottle of champagne, a Costco pack of Corona, a giant bag of $3 tortilla chips, avacados for days and a lot of Cheez-Its.
For some reason Laef had to work at 7 a.m. on Saturday. Cross Country runners are weird like that. So, while they burned thousands of calories, I indulged in major amounts of guacamole, champagne and fried eggs.
Sanchez had his gameday tools also: Livestrong bracelet and Flexiwrap. Yes, the blog is my top priority in life so I did try to put the Livestrong bracelet on him and wrap his shoulder with ice and flexiwrap (for those of you not dating an athletic trainer, flexiwrap is used to wrap ice bags onto various body parts). FYI. Kitties don’t like bracelets. Or ice bags.
By 12:30 p.m. I had taken a brief nap. Let’s just say the USC game put me to sleep. I could be the fucking quarterback and take that team to the national title game. They are batshit crazy-good no matter who is plugged in at quarterback.
Laef finally came home, wondered why I was so “fired up”, why the cat wasn’t speaking to me and where my pants were.
Gameday makes me giddy. And, I love excuses to be giddy, drink lots of Corona and eat numerous cheese balls.
I did rally to make it to a barebeque to watch the Duck game. I would just like to say that I did not appreciate Oregon’s season-opener being at 7:11 p.m. It was a long day of waiting.
While the Duckies did look solid, Washington is horrible.
Some other things of note on Week 1:
1. Dr. Lou’s dentures. I’m not going to make it an entire season. I think he spit on me twice yesterday. Before noon. I’m not that kinky that early.
2. We have heard the last of Hawaii. Whatever joy ride they went on last year has ended.
3. USC will dominate the Pac-10. Can’t wait for the USC-Ohio State game.
4. Cal’s offense is very Un-Tedford like. Riley is definitely the better option at QB, but the Bears need to iron out some wrinkles. Or throw some new ones in.
5. Oregon State needs a quarterback.
Happy Sunday! Yay for another day off tomorrow! And more college football.
