the most wonderful time of the year

its the most wonderful time of the year...

no, i am not getting in
the holiday spirit early,
i am talking about college football.

the beginning of the
college football season
is a day i look forward to
as soon as the last bowl game is played.

college football means
the beginning of fall,
comfort food,
crisp, cold weather,
and a return to knitting.

college football  means
phone conversation,
text messages,
and email diatribes
the subject is
the games both good and bad.

college football means
a sense of community,
a feeling of family,
a sense of triumph,
and the feeling of despair.

but most of all,
college football means hope.
a hope that on any given saturday
the unexpected, the unbelievable,
and the unthinkable is bound to happen.

  1. I foolishly bet my brother that Georgia was going to defeat Boise State. Guess not. Now they're my pick to take it all. We'll see what happens.

    Thank you: For my newfound "love" of college football.
