MISSING FOOTBALL PICTURE JUNE 3, 2013
Last week when the “WERE WE READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL?” went out on Tammy’s web site, I checked to see if it was really there. When it isn’t there, I only have myself to blame. I’ve tried to figure a way to put the blame on Tammy — I absolutely hate having it be my fault all the time. While I had the story on the screen, I decided I may as well read it and count all my mistakes — what am I saying??? — MY mistakes??? — my misTAKES???
Reading along, it suddenly dawned on me, the story was about football, and there was really no football in it. No scores, who won, no exciting play where I would run 98 yards for a touchdown, then lay there in the end zone while they revived me. I can’t seem to remember the games. I can remember being bussed to the various stadiums, and can see all the fans in the stands — waiting for some football — from there it’s blank.
I did talk about train rides, bus rides, eating raw oysters, and went on and on about our super hero sponsor, Marty. But no actual football games. You know what I think — I think I developed a mental block, and I hate to do this to my old brain because it might get stuck in that position. Then, where would I be? — Probably just sitting around with no memory parts in the brain container.
The picture (circa AD 1937) appearing here today is ALL about football. I was 19, and before I blinked an eye, here I am 95. “Time flies when you’re having fun.” That’s what they say. I don’t know who these “THEY” people are. I wonder if they are having fun.
