(said in that echoing radio voice)
Today is the official first Sunday of football. I have my queso, popcorn, and beer at hand. Later, we’ll be grilling flat-iron steaks.
And I’ll be wearing blue and orange. I have a section in my closet reserved for my favorite teams. There’s a small black and red area of Bulls stuff. A larger area for the blue and orange., which consists of Bears and Fighting Illini gear. And an even larger area for the black and gold. Everything from t-shirts to sweatshirts, to sweatpants to ponchos. Yes, ponchos. I own a Bears poncho that Brad bought from a street vendor in Puerto Vallarta. He wore it during the 2006 Super Bowl game.
That’s me, Brad, and my sis, Shirley.
There’s no shortage of team spirit in this house. I wear my loyalties on my sleeve, and head, and legs, around my neck, my feet…
Let the madness begin.
