i am one happy girl!!

i just found out that my favorite TV show is back in April… it’s all about

football

and

friday nights

and high school

I thought it had been canceled and that least  last year was the final season… oh so happy!!  what show you ask? or maybe you didn’t ask… maybe you could care less ha! but i’m telling you anyway….

FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS

i love love love this show!

friday night lights

now… i’m sitting here getting prepared to be the “coach”  tonight… this is gonna be very interesting…. when one considers that i had a very distinct and very public hatred for football in years past…. why you ask? (ha) a couple of reasons….

it was sort of shoved down my throat as a kid growing up… it was always football football football… as a young girl i didn’t give a flyin rat’s ass about football… i was a skater… a very intense and dedicated skater… got some pictures somewhere… roller skating – competitive… dance, freestyle, and speed… and i was pretty good even… so all i wanted was to be at the rink… not sitting around watching football….ugh

obviously not me… but same idea

the other reason…. i am a wall flower… yes, me… i have always sort of been that way… self-confidence issues, self-esteem, self-this, self-that… kind of narcissistic sounding…. anywho…. i never thought of myself as cute, still don’t… of course now i’m an old fat hag so it’s kind of a moot point….

i wasn’t into boys so much… just skating… but the blessings, ah the blessings… they attracted the boys like you wouldn’t believe… well, okay, maybe you would believe…. my freshman year of high school was in a new school district…. i didn’t know a soul…. one day about a week before homecoming the captain of the football team approached me… the captain! oh my…. many of you girls may remember how the football players in high school were to be worshiped… and they were… it was most girls’ dream to date a football player… don’t ask me why… and i didn’t really care one way or the other…

but the captain of the team…. oh…. and a hottie at that …. double oh….

he asked me to homecoming! i about shit myself…. ha!  all for nothing… let me tell you… he was a complete and total ass…. really!

back in those days the dates all dressed up in our dance attire, generally a special dress purchased special for the over-rated stupid event…. and we wore our mums with 28.3 foot ribbons waving in the wind behind us…. making it nearly impossible to sit in any fashion so as to not tangle one self up in all that beauty… anyway, i digress
honestly i don’t remember how i got home… i can’t remember if i called mom to come get me or what… but i do remember that that glorious captain showed up at my house full of hung over lame ass apologies for what he had done…. and i did not forgive…. and i have not forgotten…after the game, captain and the players showered in the field house and we all headed to the dance at the school…. well, apparently, there was more in those locker rooms than just water from the showers… the players were all shit-faced…. damn… we made it to the dance thank god… and all the while i’m fighting off the gropes of a drunk big ass corn fed bubba captain…. i figured once we made it to the dance he might back off a bit… maybe be distracted by the hoopla they were sure to create after winning the game…. nope…. he continued groping and begging and grabbing…. finally, after my dress had been torn and my slip straps ripped i left… i escaped…. home was at least 10 miles away… there were no cell phones….

so there you have it… my reasons for the deep hatred of football…

kind of ironic that now a football coach is the center of my world and that i’m his proxy tonight ha!

Being an adult is like looking both ways before you cross the street and then getting hit by an airplane.
