It’s finally football! I say it every year! My wife dreads it every year! She claims I don’t even listen to simple conversations as intently during football season, because I’m so preoccupied with the last game – the next game – the injury list – the standings – who is on the coaching hot seat – all of that stuff. And if truth be known – she’s probably right…to a certain extent, anyway. My football fandom dates way back! My father was a huge football fan, and my mother developed a love for the game, because she loved him. In fact, I can clearly recall my dad saying to my soon-to-be wife Cindy back in the day, “A proper lady will learn to love football.” He also said that to my son Derek’s wife-to-be, when she first complained about the men in the Hames family, and our obvious obsession with the game of football. To their credit, my wife and my daughter-in-law have never quite learned “…to love football,” as he put it, but they have learned to tolerate it, and my daughter Schuyler has followed in her father’s football footsteps. She truly loves the game the way I do – the way her brother does – and the way her grandfather did.
