Summer Is Over?

Thanks to an alert reader, I was made aware of something.

That “something” had snuck up on me.. and caught me unawares. And unprepared.
Flat-footed, as they say. Asleep at the wheel.

Unbeknown to me, the National Football League had held a secret cabal, and agreed to start playing this year’s games. In fact, I think 10 games were played and, I understand, more are scheduled.. (several tonight, for example.)

I was functioning under the thought that football did not start until the very end of summer. The waning days, when the first hints of a coming frost can be scented – the leaves on the trees are oranges and yellows.

So.. I can only conclude that summer is over. Fall is here.
Rats. (Summer is my fave.)

Needless to say, I was startled by this revelation. And when I am startled and caught flat-footed, I resort to research and info-gathering. I send out spies. My research told me that it is true – “pre-season” has started – and that my team had played.

“My team” being (for those readers who do not know, or remember) the very best team in all of football; the best there ever was in football; and the team destined to go undefeated for as long as there is football — the S.F. 49ers.

My team scored one field goal – 3 points.

Against the New Orleans Saints. Who manged 3 TD’s and a field goal – 24 points.

Sigh.
(Good thing these early games do not “count”!)

For those who want to learn more, I sent my spies to ESPN’s sportscenter NFL, here.

Have a great weekend everybody! It is a beautiful day here, and I hope it is there where you are too.
