The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

In case you didn’t notice, the NFL season started last week. I promised myself I would write about each week and keep everybody abreast of what was going on with the Eagles. Well, what’s another failure in life? Regardless of its reflection on this website, pro football has once again taken over my life. Even though my sister’s wedding was last week (geez, did I even mention that yet?), I still managed to watch or listen to the majority of 4 games. And now, thanks to the wonder of NFL Network On Demand, I’ve been watching highlights for as many games as possible.

The NFL Network is one of the greatest ideas ever. Seriously, at any given time, I can just flip to channel 180 and BOOM! I’ve got nonstop football TV. I can die happy… well, not before the end of the season. Now I’m trying to capture as much of the replays as possible, since they probably only keep a week at a time. Oh well, you can only have so much footbal… or can you?

The other night Lisa watched the Eagles History DVD with me. So now I’m even more gung-ho than before… if that’s even possible. But it also had a far more positive effect on me. When I first started watching the Eagles, I never really expected them to make it to the Super Bowl. I just loved watching the game. And after 3 straight NFC Championship Game losses, I suddenly don’t care anymore. I mean, I want them to go to the SB and win, but if they don’t, I’ll still enjoy the journey. I’m going to have fun with the Eagles this year one way or another.

Of course, it helps that they look amazing thus far. Lisa and I are heading to Hoboken for the Arts and Music Festival today, so I don’t really have much time to talk about everything I wanted to. Probably tomorrow I’ll discuss the start of the season as I prep for the big meeting with Minnesota tomorrow night. In closing, all I can say is DALLAS SUCKS!

  1. You know, Eva and I saw that DVD set at Best Buy today, and both mentioned what a great “Thom gift” that would make. I should have guessed you’d already have it 🙂

    And speaking of gifts, if you haven’t seen it already, there’s a new addition to the family at Luna di Luna. Shiraz / Merlot, aka “orange.”

    Not to mention the 1.5 Liter Chardonnay / Pinot Grigio I saw for the first time while shopping with Mike Saturday. Or as I called it, the family-sized bottle. 🙂

  2. And I caved and bought the Anejo Cabo Wabo :p

    So you’re coming over tonight to sample it, right Thom? 😀

  3. Mark – I always tell people that movies and music are the worst gift for me, because I buy things like that so quickly. I hadn’t seen it yet, but I’m definitely interested in the new “Orange” blend. Shiraz is a very good wine for mixing, but I’ve never had a straight 50/50 blend with Merlot.

    Mike – I’m all for that 🙂 . We need to make plans today for the game tonight – can you give Brian a call? Lisa’s got a friend coming over anyway, so after a quick meet-and-greet I can head anywhere…

  4. I also tried a glass of Black Swan Shiraz while waiting fo a table at Olive Garden. Not bad at all.

    Mike – let me know when plans are made, too 🙂 I can try to grab some snacks to bring as well.
