Football season begins
September 15, 2007
Ahhh. I can feel a slight drop in the morning temperature. Leaves are starting to turn. Fall approaches. What does this mean (apart from the fact that I, the twice a year gardener, have to start getting busy again in the garden) - it means that Football Season has begun.
Last weekend the Bronco's had a nail biting finish with the Bill's - scoring to win in the last seconds. Sunday they take on the dreaded Raiders. In between we have had the Patriots (Kevin's team) fined heavily for taping an opponent's signals at practice. It's just like a soap opera.
On a more serious note - the injury of Bills Tight End, Kevin Everett really does bring it home - this exciting sport is also a dangerous sport. Kevin Everett broke his neck while tackling a Bronco. The prognosis to date looks promising... he may be able to walk again.
My Early in the Season Wish List:
The Bronco's rookie QB Jay Cutler is going to have an amazing season. (I know he played a little last year - but he is still a rookie, and a very talented rookie at that.)
My advice to the rest of the team is guard him well. Especially when you play the Steelers, aka the Bumble Bees (because of their black and yellow team colors which make them look like large bumble bees.) Etched in my memory is that terrible "take down" of the Bengal QB Carson Palmer by a Steeler. Examine the replay and I rest my case. It would be terrible for us if our QB got injured in that way. So guard him well.
