Mark it down.
Write it in your journal.
Call your mamma.
You can even write your own blog about it.
Because this is a moment you'll never want to forget.
Ok, maybe I'm being just a little dramatic, but I will tell you why.
I just watched my first football game by myself. Because I wanted to. Because I cared!
This NFL season has sucked me in more than any other. I used to be a fair weather Cowboys fan, and ok, whenever this game is over, then we can watch one of my shows. Then we had these 3 teams with a perfect record. Then one by one they fell. Then it comes down to a come-back quarterback who looks like he aged 10 years over the course of the game against a Cinderella team on their home turf in a come-back city. Oh, the drama of it all!
I may not understand every call or play or rule of the game, but I get the story. It had a story arc that could rival most Oscar-winning screen-plays with heart-pounding action and breath-taking surprises. The characters were believable as they took turns playing hero and nemesis. I know the story isn't even over, but I can't wait to see how it plays out.
I'm obviously not going to start a sports blog, but it was a pretty exciting moment.
Oh, another unforgettable moment you get to be a part of- this blog is about to get its 1,000th visitor! So, I'm gonna try to do the prize thing. If you scroll down to the bottom and the counter says 1,000, take a screen shot or a picture and send it to me, and I'll send you a prize. (If you don't have my e-mail, just leave me a comment and I'll e-mail you.) I'm not sure what it will be yet, but it'll be good!
