So…This week was kind of a wash. Lots of things happened. I lost my fantasy football league’s championship game. There was a Tuesday night NFL game. And, free beer from kickoff until the first score (I had 2 beers in that time, btw). I tried to get kicked out by being belligerent. Since I decided to have a bit of malted hop beverage, I had a hangover for Wednesday. Smart move I’d say. Wednesday was a banner day for Noel Diggity. I lost my job. Ummmm….yeah not too much to say about that. So that means a 4 day weekend, or more I suppose. Thursday was all about getting ready for Friday. The Diggitys always head over to our besties house and spend New Year’s Eve partying and New Year’s Day in our PJs watching football. On New Year’s Eve, I didn’t party so much. I had a good time but didn’t really feel the “getting smashed” part of it. Am I getting wiser or just older? No worries about a hangover though. So, about the football on New Year’s Day….the Big Ten decided that they didn’t really care to have football games. Well, Wisky did but still fell short. I’m not sure how I feel about that though. It’s tough for me to root for TCU at all. They spent the early 20th Century being among the big boys, then became one of the small guys and now they’re gonna be at the big boy table again. Don’t even get me started about Gary Patterson. BSU had been texting him all day…whatever! Keep rubbing it in that you won the Rose Bowl. You played just good enough to beat a Big Ten team. Alabama, Mississippi State, and Florida did the same. So, good news! You’re a middle of the road SEC team. (/rant) Speaking of Mississippi State and me being a Michigan fan – Rich Rodriguez is out for sure. You had a month to prepare enough to save your job. Nice “try”. Hey BCS! UConn made you proud with all of those offensive touchdowns. They put up a good fight as long as they had their defense and special teams out there. Lazy Sunday. Watching football. Just noticed Charissa Thompson. Why hadn’t I noticed that before? I just told Mrs. Diggity she’s a handful. She said, “I’m more than a handful. My breasts are bigger than that!” I’m not digging the NFL today for some reason. The Chargers and Broncos (for the Mrs.) are out so what do I have to cheer for? Well, besides the Chargers beating the Broncos, I mean. And the Chargers did it. So, watching the brand new Oprah Winfrey Network and apparently it’s ok for the word “POOP”, yes the word “POOP”, to be tossed around like Mardi Gras beads. Is it me or is this the worst Sunday Night Football game ever? Way to be an NBA team and have a losing record getting into the playoffs, She-hawks! If anyone hasn’t noticed that the column is a bit different, I kinda had to do it all today. Tough week for me. Hope this will do until next Monday.
