We got a great deal when we switched to digital cable. Just $9.99/mo for all the movie channels...and...ugh...the sports package. Ordinarily you couldn't pay me to take such a deal, but it was a package thing for our new phone line. Great deal. Would have been more expensive not to take it.
I doomed myself to the life of a football widow. (Or at least for the next 6 months, which is when the deal expires.) This morning my husband says, "Know what I'm doing after lunch? Guess!! I'm watching football. And after that? Yep, I'm watching football. And after that? More football!!" His head might explode soon and we're only on day 1.
Under the circumstances, I think I am definitely entitled to football jokes and quotes!!
Football is a mistake. It combines the two worst elements of American life. Violence and committee meetings. -- George Will.

"Well, we didn't block real good but we made up for it by not tackling."
"I'm in favor of it."
