Feeding the Beast - 55

Stopping in his tracks,
he lifts his heads
and sniffs the air.
The smell excites him.
Adrenaline shifts into high gear.
Senses heightened,
a feeling of tremendous anticipation
washes over him
and stirs the beast within.
He knows this comforting
yet exhilarating feeling
happens every year
about this time.
Football season is around the corner.

There was a time when I would have absolutely nothing to do with football. I was very anti.

Then my son played flag football, I learned what was happening out there on the field and today I like the game.

Liked this 55 though I'm not a compulsive football fan like some are.

Yep, the sports talk stations are really picking up on it more and more, and talking about baseball less and less.

Oh dear, oh dear! Already? Just heard an interview on Brian May and We Will Rock You...the anthem has nothing to do with football, I fear.

RNSANE said...

Could summer have gone by so quickly? I may be in India for six months, starting in Nov - I wonder if I will catch any American football there? Soccer fever, instead, I suppose.

I should forward your 55 to my three sons but, goodness, I don't want to get them started any earlier!
