Camps have started. and, i'm pretty excited. I grew up in Mass and have been a Pats fan since i was a wee lad. i even had a Squish the Fish shirt during our '85 run (to getting whupped by the bears...needless to say...we didn't "bury" them).
I have to admit that fantasy football has changed my football watching, but actually, it has made me tune in more. i will watch any and every game i can.
needless to say...uhhh...i like football.
And as i think about it, football is more than just football to me. really, it's how i socialize for 5 months a year. but, it's more than that too. i consider it an escape. no matter how bad my week was at work...no matter the daily stresses i am dealing with...each game is like a mini-vacation from all of that. it is something i look forward to each and every week. my best day ever is skiing hard in the morning, head home, crack a beer, and start watching football. and in VT, i can have that every weekend. it's pretty great.
sooo...as the camps start...and as the radio and TV start talking non-stop about it....and especially once that air starts to change, when you tilt your head at night and you can start smelling the "fall" a-coming...yup...to me, there's nothing quite like that.
i can't wait!
i'm not really sure why i am telling you all this. i'm sure there's other fans in this forum. tell me your stories. who are your teams? what's your outlook?
