Sweet Indulgences



Well...well...here it is another Monday. Had to work this weekend and didn't get to see much football. I know, so sad, right? I did get to see the last few minutes of the NY Giants snatching victory away from the Dallas Cowboys last night. Alls I can say is...how sweet it is. Gotta love those kickers. They call them heros or zeros. Last night was hero night for the Giants kicker. Again I say, sweet. Very, very, sweet.

And how 'bout them Saints? I promise you, I hear the sound of marching footsteps...I hear voices saying...this WILL be the year...this WILL be the year!

I know, I know, I know, there are so many things, so much more important than football going on right now.

I sometimes consider it just a sweet, delightful indulgence, to care about something, that I know, at the end of the day, really isn't going to make that much difference.

Win, lose or draw.

That's the beauty of football. For me. Anyway.



***Hope all of you have a beautiful Monday. It's way past my bedtime, with two more 12 hour night shifts ahead of me before off days. "Grace and peace be unto you" Philippians 1:2***

I am more of a College football fan. Something about their excitement about playing. I am happy the Saints are off to a good start this year. Maybe they will finally have a good year. One can only hope. At least this "indulgence" isn't fattening...lol. Have a blessed day!

HI DEBRA!!!
MY family are big Dallas Cowboy fans!! Sorry, I love the local team the Arizona Cardinals!!! They won yesterday!!!
I googled tickets for Regis and kelly, it says to request tickets up to 1 year in advance, well who knows one year in advance!!!
They do however have a stand by line, you get there at 7 a.m. and get a stand by number, from there if the studio does not fill up, stand byes get in, so it is a gamble!!!!
Go to the ABC studio at SE corner of West 67th street and Columbus Ave. Now this is not the official address for ABC but site states that is where the entrance is, so make your way to that corner and hopefully you will get in!!!!
I would try to see alot of shows taped in NYC!!!! Who wants to be a Millionaire auditions from it's audience!!!!
Go early to the Today stage!!!!!
Cool
cannot wait for pics from NYC!!!!
hugs,
jamie

I'm a Bronco fan myself, but don't get to watch too many. You're right, tho', about little indulgences.

Maxine said...

I totally agree with you. It is indeed a delightful indulgence. Glad you enjoy sports too. I am a Giants fan, so you can imagine how much that victory excited me.
