Hahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaa - one of Young Miss's friends just called and asked what she was doing, and she said, "Watching football with my mom - it's kind of a religious experience...." and I asked her if she really felt that way, and she said, "sort of" - My Gosh! She must remember when she was very young, and I was with her daddy in Michigan, and trying to learn Big Ten Football so I could talk with the locals, and would hold her while studying the games! (I've told the story often - how I ended up being very impressed by "North Dakota", ROFL....)...
....and, like me, she said, "I like college football, but don't even know any pro football teams" - and I told her about how I had jokingly posted here that on a good day, I could name 4 pro teams - so she took the challenge, and could name three of the same teams I did....she had The Patriots as one, and said, "wait a minute - is that football?"- and I thought it might be, so I gave her the point...
I don't think either one of us can name more than two pro basketball teams - let's see! I have, Pistons and Lakers - wait, are Laker's basketball?
She has Pistons and Rangers - ah - a daughter after my own heart - she just went, "Wait! Lakers", LOL - this is fun....

Pro football bugs me - I can never get over the feeling that too many things are very wrong....but, I'm guessing I just don't have enough comprehension to "go there" - in other words, I am missing a lot of subtleties that real football fans get....
ROFLMAO - I will NEVER forget that - (in case anyone reading doesn't know - which is unlikely - she was a tyke and napping, so I muted the TV and just watched the game, and "ND" was Very impressive - so my little football mind went to work thinking, "Well, that make sense: nothing to do in North Dakota but play football, and they grow Big, Corn-Fed Bois - but why are they playing a Big Ten team?"
OMG - She IS a daughter after my own heart (as if there was any doubt of THAT!) - I asked her to call off pro baseball teams, and she started reeling them off! I don't know HOW that happened - I was a big league baseball lover, and would always buy tickets for her daddy and me to go to games - but he was a real jerk about it, so I quit before she was born.....and still - she knows Big League Baseball! I am in AWE! Is this genetic, ROFL....
