God, football is such a great waste of a Sunday

A wise man (or at least a man) I know just uttered the above phrase and I must say, he is absolutely right. First off, we started the day with our new Direct TV NFL package. Sure, he blamed the impromptu switch to Direct TV on a pure hatred for all things Charter TV, but now I can't believe I was so stupid not to see it before - The Direct TV football package (conveniently not available through Charter) was clearly all part of his master Fantasy Football plan. After days of counting down to the start of the regular season, and after finally learning how to work the 234 channels of football, he very emphatically announced that this would all be MUCH BETTER if we were watching it on a brand new 52" flat screen tv. I must say, I'm inclined to agree.. maybe he is a wise man after all. Below is a shot of the CLEARLY no longer acceptible mere 36" HD tv complete with an 8 game broadcast.



Unfortunately there were some casualties to the first big day of football. After realizing she was rapidly becoming second best to Fantasy Football and her parent's laptops, #1 daughter found new ways of amusing herself in a desperate cry for attention...

I was impressed with her ability to multi-task all WHILE WEARING A BUMBO on her head.



After all the exhausting hours of holding a bumbo on her head, it was finally time for some lunch. This devoted fan, made sure she had her laptop close by to keep up on all her player's stats.



Lastly, newest team family member, Shane P, dolls out the advice: "Sorry dad, but I still think Grandpa got the better end of the deal. Tomlinson alone isn't going to account for even a 1/3 of all the points Burleson, T.O. and Williams are going to put on the board and you really took it on the chin today with only 13 points from L.T. Look, stick with me dad, I'll show you the ropes."

I don't know about you all, but I think this one's a little cocky already. Just look at that sly smile, don't you just hate a little 4 month old know it all...


Happy FF Kickoff day to all. Go Webmasters!

This is by far one of the funniest/cutest post thus far. I laughed out loud to the commentary with the bumbo on Bridget's head!

P.S. That picture of Shane and his daddy enjoying some ff is fantastic. I love the smiles.

Hilarious. After all the watching and ignoring your children you did, the Midget Coutures still beat you. I'll save the rest of the smack talk for the FF ring on-line. Bridgey, there is nothing wrong with putting a bumbo on your head. I know you are just trying to match the size of Shane P's head:) Just kidding, BAD had a head like that too at one time. Love, Aunt Me-Me
