Football season. It's Eric's favorite. Luckily, it's one of the shortest seasons played by professionals. If he was a baseball fan I think I might kill myself. Don't get me wrong, I like to watch football, just not nearly as much as Eric does, and today marks the first day of a full day of football. Not being able to see EVERY Packer game was getting to him, so what does he do?....convinces (I don't know how) his parents that they should switch to DirectTV so that he can order NFL Ticket. Great.

And I will stay invested until November - because for the first time in a long time I will be back with those I feel at home with, in a stadium that hosted the opening ceremony of the Olympics compared to the Osmond 8th Generation concerts and Stadium of Fire. Yes, it will be good to be back at Rice-Eccles, oh how I have missed you.
