Come Monday...Am I Ready For Some Football?

“Come Monday…” is a weekly series that will involve a review of, or commentary about, websites, movies, documentaries, television shows, sports, music, and whatever else may tickle my fancy at the time. Be assured that these reviews will be generally positive, as in accordance to the Jimmy Buffett song “Come Monday.” This is subject to change, however. In fact, I would be most derelict in my duties to neglect going on a rant every once in a while. For rants promote change, and change can be good—right? Therefore, since good is generally considered as being a positive force in 99.3% of the parallel universes that I am aware of, even a rant could be considered as being something positive, and a genuine hissy-fit would be even better (so I’m told).


Well, at least not anymore of what I watched a few hours ago. For my [Dallas Cowboys] have evidently taken the mantra, hugs—not drugs, a little too seriously, and a holding penalty on the right offensive tackle negated the game-winning touchdown as time expired.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, it can be argued that this one play did not cost them the game. For if they had been up by 2-3 touchdowns at the time, the holding penalty wouldn’t have mattered much. In response to that I would like to say, JUST SHUT UP!!!

Oops, adding more salt to my gaping wound, I suppose I am incurring the ire of the Grammar Nazis (AGAIN!) for a number of crimes against the English language. All I have to say is, JUST LEAVE ME ALONE AND GO PICK ON SOMEONE ELSE WHO WOULD DARE LEAVE THEIR PARTICIPLES JUST A-DANGLIN’!!!

No, as a matter of fact, I don’t feel any better now. For I am quite sure that [Crotchety] can't stop giggling like a school girl over his [New York (Football) Giants] beating the [Carolina Panthers] earlier in the day, and [Dickster] is probably still jumping up and down on the bed—being the diehard [Washington Redskins] fan he is.

Oh yeah, the season has just begun, but it is going to be a long, long one if my Cowboys don’t get their offensive linemen in a more anti-social mood. At least my [Arkansas Razorbacks] are playing like they are supposed to this year, and my [Cassville Wildcats] are acting like they just might win their third Class 3 Missouri State Football Championship in a row. Still, what do I have to really cheer about when my Cowboys make [Dan Hampton] out to be a genius?
