The actual old harry
Hello gabbers and thanks for stopping by today.
With my sidekick Shorty back where he came from and our NFL prognostications done it’s time to face the fact that Summer is winding down .
NOT THAT FAR DOWN...
The various parts of the country where each of you are from see seasonal changes a little differently from the Southern New England area a few of us call home.
At the time of this writing it’s a cool 68 degrees out side and the forecast is sunny and a high of 78.
But with the fading sunshine and shorter days along with brisker wind and turning leaves comes the most watchable sport on the planet
The sweet aroma of Football is in the air.
Soon the fantasy football aficionados will be drafting the best players available.
The final pre season games will be under the belts of our favorite teams
The rosters will be cut to 53 and a practice squad will be assembled
Every team will be tied for first and last
Every team will have high hopes and aspirations
And soon an explanation for failure
Some teams rely on an aging formula for success because it always seems to work
Some teams rely on a young guy for improvement
Some teams rely on
Home field advantage
Some teams assume they will always be in the mix
And some teams realize that their hopes are really based on
…hopes and smoke and mirrors and the past
Some teams think that maybe change is good
Some teams insist that what they have should work
As unpredictable as the NFL seems
Some things never seem to change
But then, some things do
Following Football is like owning a Jeep.
Any of you that has or has had a jeep will know what I mean.
You love it, you drive it, you break it, you fix it, you drive it, you love it, you break it, you fix it and on and on it goes…even though it seems like it’s a hole in the driveway that you just throw money in…you keep it and you love it
And compare the NFL game with any other sport available and as mad as your team makes you…you will watch…you will hope…they will get better.
and win one of these things
