NFL FOOTBALL IS BAAAACCCCCKKKKKKKKK!
Okay kids - this week sees the return of NFL football to our tv screens. And what better opening game to the season can you ask for than for the Tennessee Titans to be travelling to the hallowed Heinz Field to play the PITTSBURGH STEELERS! And kids, do you know how to spell "ROETHLISBERGER"? 'Bout time you learned.
You may have detected a wee bit of favouritism associated with any mention of the PITTSBURGH STEELERS!. And the fact that the excitement bit of punctuation is also somewhat attached to that particular team name. AND YOU'D BE RIGHT!!!
Needless to say the Older Brother and his wife are hosting a bbq the the evening of the season opener and I will be travelling to their home probably mid-afternoon as the tv coverage of this event will commence at 5 p.m. West Coast time and I don't want to miss a minute. Now a part of me would love to be at the Kickoff and Rib festival that is part of the Pittsburgh pre-season opener festivities taking place right now but I will happily settle for a lovely 'burger from Jimmy's grille on game day.
If you've read any of my earlier blog posts you may have run across those from the last NFL season and especially from last season's Super Bowl game when the PITTSBURGH STEELERS! came out on top in the league.
(Hmmm, I'm already wondering if the shrine will be in place at Jim's house for this fabulous season opener.)
The Terrible Towel is at the ready and the arm is warming up . . .
