2016-2017 College Football Bowl Games, Days 4-7

Well, my record hasn’t been all that great this bowl season. If I continue this way, well…laughs

Day 4 (December 21) – San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl, BYU vs Wyoming (This was a Win! The next 3 were not!))

Day 5 (December 22) – Famous Idaho Potato Bowl, Idaho vs Colorado State

Day 6 (December 23) – Popeyes Bahamas Bowl, Old Dominion vs Eastern Michigan

Lockhead Martin Armed Forces Bowl, Louisiana Tech vs Navy

Dollar General Bowl, Troy vs Ohio (This was another win!! Yay!)

Day 7 (December 24) – Hawai’i Bowl, Hawai’i vs Middle Tennessee (And… this was not.)

Maybe this losing thing will end soon…

Football Football Football

Yes, y’all that’s what time of year it is!

I do write and work on things on the weekends, but I primarily watch football. It starts for me on Thursday nights. There’s Friday night college football too. All day Saturday starting at 9am with GameDay on ESPN, Sunday starting at 10am with the NFL, and Monday nights. That’s A LOT of football. And that makes for a happy Lissa.

It’s a lot of time in front of the television, too. On my ass. Though I do get up and walk in place (hey, it counts) every now and then. And walk to the kitchen…laughs. But, it’s also time with my son. We watch football together. We talk about all kinds of things during the games and between them. It’s where his interest is…sports. So, it’s something we can share and connect with. That’s important to me. It has always been important to me. He and his father have baseball and softball. He and his sister have video games. He and I have football and racing and golf. It’s all about the connection, the conversation, the time spent making memories…

So, while I type words into the computer from the pages and pages of handwritten ones, I’ll be watching football.

We all know I have college teams I follow and college coaches I can’t stand. But I don’t follow NFL teams. I follow players who I paid attention to in college. I like seeing them progress and it allows me to watch all sorts of teams and games. It’s the fantasy way to do it, only I don’t play fantasy football. I simply watch and I watch for the love of the game.

Y’all have a great Sunday!

2014 BCS National Championship – FSU vs Auburn

fearthespear

I know Monday is usually Music Monday, but today is a special Monday. Tonight is the BSC National Championship for college football. My Florida State Seminoles and the Auburn Tigers!

It’s the last game of the 2013-14 college football season. It’s a big night in my house and depending on how the game ends tonight, I’ll either be around tomorrow or I’ll be MIA for a few days as I get over it and move on.

For now though, there’s hope and anticipation and I’m really not good for much right now…lol

If you don’t follow college football, I’m sorry. If you do and you’re not an FSU or Auburn fan, for tonight, I’m sorry. If you don’t care about tonight’s game, I’m sorry. If, however, you do follow college football, FSU, Auburn, etc… Then I wish you the best of luck tonight and next season.

I’ve got my FSU coffee cup, my shirt on, my hat and socks, my FSU flag is hanging outside as it has all season. I’ve got Seminole stew in the crock-pot, the Seminole serving dishes at the ready. It’s time for one last shot at glory season…

Music Monday – The Boys Of Fall

Over on the sidebar, there’s a College Football countdown widget. If any of y’all know me, y’all know I love me some college football. I like the NFL too (don’t have a fave team, just certain players I follow), but my heart and soul with football is college ball.

Now, I’m not a huge Kenny Chesney fan, but he had a song, The Boys of Fall that hits me in the gut every time. For most people, you’re still looking at Summer. You’re counting down to when your kids go back to school, but at the same time you’re seeing Summer. Me, I’m itching for Fall. Cool weather, and football.

There are so many sports romances out there too. Hockey, baseball, racing, wrestling, and football. I don’t read many of them myself, but I do love that they’re there for you to read. I love that sports are not just for men anymore, that the female fan base is growing by leaps and bounds.

So, if you’re looking forward to Fall and looking forward to football, there’s a hot new contemporary romance from Selena Blake, Ask For It.

Trevor Wyatt has lusted for journalist JJ Fairchild since before he retired from the NFL. Now she’s back in his life and he’s not going to miss the opportunity to show her just how good they could be together.

Words may be JJ’s tool of trade, but when it comes to the bedroom, words escape her. Trevor’s an excellent teacher and before she knows it, she’s asking for what she wants.

But when outside forces threaten to expose dark secrets from Trevor’s past, can he overcome his suspicions and trust the woman in his bed?
