There is something about a Sunday afternoon this time of year that is all about watching NFL football. Now when I say watch football, I do not want you to think I park my butt on the couch at 1:00 for the opening kickoff of the early game and stay on the couch until 7:00 or so until the final whistle of the later afternoon game. The teams playing, the quality of the game and how close the score is are all variables of how much butt parking actually happens. Let’s also be real and throw in that I may have things that need to be done around the house or other obligations that may infringe on my butt parking time in front of the TV. Also, I have been known to multi-task during my football watching antics. I usually like to have a bottle of wine open that provides some sipping opportunities throughout the afternoon. Also, Cathy may be cooking up a pot of sauce and I will tend to hang around the kitchen and watch the game from afar and listen for the roar of the crowd. Thanks to the DVR if I hear the roar of the crowd and miss the play I can always rewind the live TV and never miss any of the action.
