4:35 PM
Chiefs @ Colts
NBC

8:10 PM
Saints @ Eagles
NBC

Okay. What’s that word the head doctors use to describe the surmised effect of rooting for one team and it ALWAYS seems to go just the opposite of what you are forecasting or rooting for? Umm. Yeah. Well, I suppose I should go on and on about how bad the Chiefs are, how its defense is full of holes – and then watch it win that side the ball.

But I won’t. I’m not a Colts fan either. I mean, I was around when they left the East Coast. The papers were full of pictures of moving vans and descriptions of  the event. No good feelings there, even now.

And the Saints. My gosh. How do you play football in a town twenty nine feet under water? That’s just terrible. Although, I must say they were smart enough not to be there when the joint flooded the last time – if smart means off season, you understand.

The Eagles? Well, consider where they play. That town is full of strange people. Really. So that means the team is bound to be full of stranger. For sure.

And the games are all on NBC.

Now that’s the strangest of all.

I mean, really.

About tenwhiskey

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.

    Do you have Netflix streaming? Watch the ESPN 30 for 30 documentary called The Band That Wouldn’t Die about the Baltimore Colts band that kept playing.

    If no Netflix, check local listings on ESPN Classic. Sometimes they air 30 for 30 docs. This was one of the best ones I saw.

    Trailer here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mBuAMwBogdM

    Dr. Pauly. That band was one of those memories you cannot get into a box in a dusty closet. It was almost sad. It’s too bad they cannot put those film strips on some thing less perishable than film.
