Not Lying Intentionally (NLI)

Dear hearts I have so much to share with you, my fingers are shaking with excitement! 

Are you ready for this weekend? SB LI is Sunday if you didn’t know. Yes the Patty Pats will be playing, along with their fearless leader, Hoodie Billy B.

Kind reminder to refrain from doing this during the game … He’s their fearless owner  0ap3000000397918_video_cp

Be like this guy…. He’s lit and over 70 years old. Not quite the dirty bird, close enough. img_5223

He’s also the Falcons owner in his spare time, since retiring from building the store you likely spend your Saturday improving your home at. 

Personally, I’d rather sit sixth row, wearing in my fur, channeling my inner Joe Namath at Met Life Stadium, while watching the heartbreaking Jets play, in front of me when I’m over 70. I’m optimistic over the next four decades… img_4478

Who will win this lovely game? Watching the Pats lose a SB again is a nice little thrill. I prefer when Tommy Boy is upset. It’s not that easy to predict, and this game could be one of the best SB match ups to date. 

Let me guide you through a few points: 

Pattie Pats Pros

  • Experience – been here, done this before with 4 trophies  
  • Brady – arguably, sigh- one of the greatest QB’s of all-time will be starting
  • Possibilities -Belichick +DC Patricia +OC McDaniels can draw up plays and game plans that make opponents have nightmares

Negatives

  • Gronky – that tight end is out and he played a critical role 
  • Overconfidence – they may want to throw it to the birds, and that wouldn’t be smart with this Hot-lanta team

Falcons Pros

  • Offense – Fast + versatile with QB Ryan and primary target, J. Jones
  • O-line – Solid protection to operate the show behind them
  • Defense – A force and one who can fly into Brady 
  • HC Quinn – the new coach pumped more than a little life into the team this season
  • OC Shanahan Jr – he knows what to do with their system(s)

Falcons Negatives

  • Inexperience  – 18 years since last SB appearance
  • Defense –  young things Belichick can destroy quickly with his Tommy gun and additional offensive weapons – Edelman +receivers x, y, and z…

My prediction is a low-scoring affair, heavy on the D. That’s where both teams will need to focus since both offenses are potent.

If you are a pro-only type of football fan, the worst time of the year has possibly begun.

Unless you’re like me, who enjoys pro-style and college. nli_logo_400x400

Over the last 7-10 days, snaps, tweets and and many videos of recruits announcing to us silly fans, which school they will be signing off all their rights to as student athletes, tomorrow. 

The days of the hat swap in a high school gym, or an idea taken from The Decision have vanished. It’s okay dear heart to get a little excited. Now take a breath, and realize 2 -3 gents actually work out. It’s like picking a stock netting you a 35% gain. There’s not a science to it. Luck plays a heavy hand. 

Oh no… We’re witnessing another stadium finance disaster. How do you catch a billionaire? Or a millionaire trying to become a billionaire. Offer him several hundreds of millions in cash for a new stadium. Giggle if you didn’t see this coming…

These little snags happen. Ronnie Lott is running in to save the day, just like he used to when he played for the 49er’s. That’s domination in more than one way. Oh, San Diego is now also giving an offer… the residents will love that.

This is a lot to suddenly take in…img_4922

High Expectations

Like my scotch habits and heels, my expectations are also high in regards to the season soon upon us. We know it, sense it and smell it… It’s almost here dear hearts.

Allow me to lick my lips while saying, mmmmm

NFL training camps begin next week and CFB conference days are wrapping up. Let me share what’s recently caught my eye…

Expansion – generally means an increase in size. What if the name you currently have doesn’t match your current size? Is it still considered an expansion?

I’m all about the Big XII being twelve again. The name is downright misleading. Since this is a voting year, I’d vote for two in blue – BYU & Memphis. First you get the Blessing and second you get the SEC. 

Speaking of the SEC, they’re Just the good old boys. Never meanin’ no harm.

I know I wasn’t the only one thinking this as I watched SEC media days…

Let’s evaluate the new boys in town – Muschamp,  Odom and Smart.

Looking quite fitting in their sport coats and bama bangs. Enough evaluating, moving along. 

My borderline (non)affair for Coach Bielema rages on, after this gem parting from his lips:

“At Arkansas we’re not built very sexy, we’re just kind of a work in progress. We need a lot of time in the bathroom to get ready and come out and look great.”  

Oh Coach…

The SEC – charming, country, and sometimes too much.

Speaking of too much, oh lovely another TV channel. The ACC network is here. My eyes did a double take with no adult beverage in my little system. Twenty years is quite something to see, and dear hearts it’s happening until 2036.

Take that in for a moment.

We also know if the Irish choose to commit, which makes me giggle since they are so Independent, they have a nice pair of golden handcuffs tied to… The ACC Network.

I’ll end with the perfect words for the upcoming season:

I need you, I need you, I need you right now
Yeah, I need you right now
So don’t let me, don’t let me, don’t let me down
I think I’m losing my mind now
It’s in my head, darling I hope
That you’ll be here, when I need you the most
So don’t let me, don’t let me, don’t let me down

Cheers,

#NLI No Lying Intentionally

What an exciting day!!!

Cheers to all coaches for making bold moves on the recruiting front.

Especially Harby’s tree climbing skills, and sleepovers .

While in years past this was something to behold, I have to believe now, it’s just kind of… kind of in years past. What a shame

I’m yawning at another ball cap swap. The crew sitting in the back, while the senior in HIGH SCHOOL calls a press conference underneath the basket in the gym. Taking a page from The Decision, and stating he is proudly going to… (insert here)? Cute

Posts will be written about class rankingsthose expected to redshirt. The geographical breakup of recruiting classes per conference, and who’s expected to start.

While my eyes roll over this craziness, I’m also intrigued and #guilty for reading every post. Football… mmmmm

Honey, let’s have a heart-to-heart. In two years will you honestly remember a sixth of these names? Me either.

Now, if you still believe football takes a jocks-only mentality, why would Notre Dame and Stanford achieve Top 25 recruiting classes, and a Top 11 and 3  final AP ranking respectively? It’s a smart game dear hearts. Drink it in.

Get ready to work boys. Enjoy the last four months of freedom. After, it’s you and this guy, and this one screaming duck you every other word out of their mouths.

No, you’re not good enough to be there, you had better earn it. 

Cheers

Knight vs Pickens 

No darlings, I’m not thowing out legal advice.

Pouring over my honey-to-do list of catching up on football news, ESPN discussed the word that college football was based on… Tradition.

Where is it going? Why aren’t recruits choosing The Fighting Irish anymore, or Big Blue or the Huskers?? Tradition!

Big Boring Football is all I hear.

Don’t get me wrong honey, Saturday’s waking up in the sunny Golden Triangle, I feel a little flutter when USC has a home game, and my mind begins humming the fight song.

Why yes I become excited to witness a man wearing his armor, riding his white horse -what woman doesn’t?- and the crowd at the Coliseum. Which resembles the actual Roman relic in more ways than one. Those stairs crumbling apart under your feet, gives it character. I view it as tradition in action.

I almost became a 12th woMan on the field one sunny LA afternoon, as one of those crumbly things gave away under my red sole, and I began tumbling straight toward the field. Thankfully my boyfriend at the time saved me.

Don’t act like it hasn’t happened to you dear Trojans fan.

I can hear it now…

“The Trojans defense is lined up, looks like a dime package with Shaw deep in the secondary. Here’s the snap and whoa… Whoa!! What?! Is that..?! who’s that tumbling onto the field? She just wiped out Huntley! and it’s a fumble! Touchdown! Hurry boys and line up to kick the extra point for the win, and the play isn’t reviewed!!”

I have fantasies too you know.

Back to that T word… University of Oregon Inc. was brought up. Their flashy uniforms, state of the art glass enclosed lockers with iPads installed, the hyperbaric chamber in the corner, and Uncle Phil up in his box calling a play or two.

Well there’s another uncle from the good old state of Oklahoma, who is a member of the Billionaire Boys Club like Uncle Phil…
If Uncle Phil bought his way to win, why hasn’t Uncle Pickens done the same for that other OSU?

What have you done for me lately Oklahoma State? I too lust for the nearly decade-ago priceless press conference quotables.

Their unis (oh silly, autocorrect NOT units) are slick. I enjoy a nice flat gray paired with undertones of black & burnt (non-Texas) orange.

They have played well in the new Big X… I just mandated those other two Roman numerals dropped until Commish Bowlsby can find two schools wanting to make the Big XII, XII again.

Why is this honey on a rant? How does this relate to tradition? Directly relates to why T-R-A-D-I-T-I-O-N in CFB is saying, ciao!

It’s a new shift, and as one who believes change is the only constant, I’m lapping it right up, like an 18 year Oban neat… yummy.

So why do you scratch your little head & say out loud, but Oregon paid to play!

Oh hush now.

It’s like Apple, Instagram, those snap twats… Someone did it better honey, get over it.

Money can buy you a good time, a few mail order brides pretty faces, fine cuts of meat, paired with decedent brown liquor, and shiny toys – like a bright red balding middle aged-man mobile.

Face the cold-blooded truth my darling, you envy after the Taco in the bar who can pull any honey he wants, although he’s couch surfting while finding weed seed money to fund his next venture, while eating bar nuts.

Some guys get it. All they do is win win win no matter what. Giving tradition the duck-face.
That’s what Oregon did.

Did they lure in top talent with those shiny lockers and slick unis? Absolutely
Did they convince some 17-year old who’s never been told the two letters, N-O he would start as QB? Yes

Did they likely tell Momma that her boy down south has a better chance of making it to the N.F.L. although he may not start for like two seasons? Uh-huh

Coffee’s for closers my dear hearts, and that’s why “I’mma man! I’m 40!” Isn’t so en fuego for the pretty young things, recruits.
Cheers,

FFF

Bye Bye Belly

Flash of skin, midriff, tight tummy, abs, crop top… A few sexy words that make me cringe when I read, or hear them associated with football.


Although, on occasion viewing this little piece of exposure leads my mind to wonder about how much I enjoy sacks, pounding it up the middle, hammering the QB, or wanting the D… To pick off the ball and score in my the end zone. 

This is a sport involving a pigskin, played on a gridiron. Not a description of the swimsuit edition of SI. Keep the pillow talk where it should be… Between the pillows of course.

I complated a victory lap when I heard the news yesterday. I instead chose to whisper ‘yes!’ under my breath. 

Finally, the NCAA does something right -cue my exaggerated eye roll, similar to when I overheard a silly fool declare he owns oceanfront property…in Arizona. 

I no longer need to see any of the images below. Thank the football gods the chamber in Indy could come to an agreement, not involving cream cheese, or a mascot

In memory of the now prohibited naughty bare stomach, I’ve complied a commensurate collage. 

Cheers NCAA, glad you’re concerned with the serious issues. My glass is half full.
