There’s More to Football than Uniforms — ha, ha, ha!

Let’s talk football. Or not. I mean really, we don’t need to talk … I’m not much of a phone person and since you’re not sitting next to me, well, talking just isn’t going to be an option … unless I give you my phone number and I’m not doing that, so moving on … let’s talk football.

Until a few minutes ago—go ahead and prepare yourself to laugh now—I thought Baker Mayfield (did I spell that right) was a boxer. So why is he playing football?? Oh come on, I cannot be the only one. Right?? Am I right?? Anyone?

In my defense, when I was a young teenage girl, I loved LOVED Sugar Ray Leonard … so much so that I was obsessed with the ‘76 Olympic team. Lightweight, featherweight, super feather?? Batnam, heavy, middle … SIDEBAR how many divisions even are there? And why? For those of you that frequent here, you might know I was a pretty damn good runner at one time, but I didn’t get to choose who I competed against? When I was a freshman in high school (let alone college) I had to compete against “faster,” “stronger,” seniors … and hell yes I won (I do know a few guys who were seniors when I was a freshman who can attest to this) so … why do boxers get to compete against different “levels” … OH, right … weight class. OK. Fine. Whatever.

Moving on … as it turns out Baker Mayfield is QB1 for the Cleveland Browns. Oddly, I only recently decided the Browns are my favorite pro team … I mean have you seen their new uniforms?? I’m not a big fan of orange and black (Oregon State Beavers, bleck!!!) but the Browns got the combo right. So what’s not to love? Besides, wasn’t Chris Collinsworth a receiver there in the ‘80s? Oh snap. That was Cinnci? Right? Well, at least I got the state right.

Speaking of uniforms, have you seen the new L.A. Rams uniforms?? Maybe I should like them too? Oh, and the NY Jets … major kudos on the helmets!!

xoxoxox peeps … I’d write more but one, no one is probably still reading and two, I gotta go watch San Diego whip up on Pittsburgh. Wait. When did the Chargers move to L.A.??? For a girl who knows the difference between a tackle and a guard and an end let alone what an audible is or what it means to be an illegal receiver … I’m beyond confused. Ugh. Regardless, WHO DOESN’T LOVE SOME FOOTBALL!!!

However, being that I edit my own work—and it’s next to impossible to properly edit your own work—I admit, occasionally there may be an error or two I miss. But doing so doesn’t make me an idiot so don’t be mean. Just smile, pat yourself on the back for finding an error and be glad you’re not the only one who makes mistakes sometimes … xoxox
