You know what, I'll admit it...I want this season for me. Every year, for as long as I can remember, I looked forward to football in the fall. I love it when the world begins to cool and the days get shorter and the leaves are showing their true colors. I love pumpkin everything and candy and Thanksgiving. I love bowl games and bitter rivalries and painful losses because feeling pain means I'm emotionally invested. Some of my most cherished memories are that of me and my dad watching The Game together, knowing that the entire state of Ohio was somewhere watching it with their loved ones.
I don't want anyone to get sick, and I am very well aware that the players and coaches are the ones who put in the blood, sweat and tears for this season, not me. But I will allow myself this one moment of selfishness, because I want this season for my entertainment and because it is the only sport that truly owns my heart.
All I can offer is this.
What about the Scarlet Knight that's an armored warrior riding an actual horse? I think that dude is bad as hell.
Is that his photo from 7th grade, because he has the face of a little kid.
