Very well, then.

All know by now that I’m an addicted football freak. I like football like a junkie likes his stuff. Like a woman likes diamonds. Like a fat kid hates skinny kids. Like a  macho likes piano lessons – sorry mothers.

Or, maybe, like OKA liked getting smashed by Clemson in a Nationally televised Bowl Game.

Yeah. That’s how much I like football.

And then there is the SYSTEM. That’s the ESPN Capitol One College Bowl Games. One of the things I like about this time of year. All those Bowl games. I don’t pay much attention to the hype spewed from the mouths of the talking heads; you know, this team has a chance, that team hasn’t, this team will take it all.

I like the College Bowls, ever since I found the time to watch them. I like the fact the little colleges get a chance for bragging rights within their skill set. That is, if, if, the bowls are put together fairly well. Like, pay attention to the skill sets and keep the pud games for the regular season and padding stats. You know .  . .

And the SYSTEM works fairly well in the beginning, at least it did this year. Pretty even games. Made the effort worth it to arrange ones schedule around the games. Throw in the occasional Pro Game for spice and Capital One has something going for it.

I do have the susceptibility to the hype, I suppose, Like Oklahoma doesn’t loose, OK has to win. Arkansas and Ohio and FLA, USC, and Washington, and . . . well, you know, the BIG Schools.

Like Texas and Texas A&M.

The team I feel most sorry for this season is Arkansas. So far, that is. I mean, look, they came to a bowl game ready to play and they were, according to the hype, suppose to have an opponent.

Who turned out to be pretty much named Wesley. That’s a college somewhere on the East Coast. A girls school.

What ever happened to the Sheriff Arppio, the Governor of Texas, the truly Republic Republic of the American mid-west?

Don’t try to answer that, I will.

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.
