fall and football

even though fall arrrived on september 22, i know that it's here for a while. the leaves on the trees have started to change color, and temperatures are falling -- the forecast tonight is for the low 40s.

and football is here.

because i live in the indianapolis area, i especially follow the colts. but i don't call myself a fan. fan is short for fanatic. no matter how the colts do, i don't get that emotionally involved with their wins and losses.

as much as i like professional football, i like college football more because of the passion involved. if you're a 180-pound running back and you're getting tackled by 250-pound defensive linemen -- AND YOU'RE NOT GETTING PAID FOR IT -- then you have a passion for the game.
