I’m not going to go into detail about the Packer vs. Seahawks game last night. If you didn’t watch the game turn on the news or ESPN so you
can see the worst call in NFL history with your own eyes. Don’t take my word for it, check it out.
You know it was a bad ending when diehard Bear and Viking fans
are consoling Packer fans on Facebook. And you know it was horrific when Twitter blows up with comments against the NFL and when Roger Goodell, NFL commissioner, has his email account shut down because his mailbox is full.
And to add insult to injury the Seahawks acted as if they deserved the touchdown. If they would have said they were happy it turned out
in their favor but that they didn’t deserve it, then things would have been a little different. And the refs, I hope they are in hiding or that the police
put them in protective custody. I think they are former pee-wee football
coaches. And I hope the Seahawk fans are embarrassed and I hope the Packer fans are proud and I hope the NFL is hard at work this morning making sure this doesn’t happen again.
My Dad is a Bears fan and when I saw his name flash across my
phone this morning I contemplated not answering it at all. When I did finally answer I warned him right from the get-go that if he gave me any shit at all about the game that I would hang up on him. He said he just wanted to warn me about the flood. He said The Mississippi River was going to overflow from all the Packer fan tears!
Tread lightly around Packer fans today, we had a rough night!
This morning my neighborhood is a nice fluffy shade of white. No
snow, just toilet paper. It’s homecoming week and every year the high school kids feel the need to decorate houses and yards in town with toilet paper. We have a teacher that lives on our street and that poor guy gets it every year. You would think that the houses with no trees are safe but that’s not the case,
they simply tear the paper into tiny pieces like confetti and they sprinkle it all over the lawn.
I actually caught the kids doing the papering red-handed. Eight of them tried to hide behind the same tree. I pretended like I didn’t see them
for two reasons:
1. I don’t want my house on their list.
2. I see no harm in it.
There are a lot of kids in the world out late at night doing bad
things while the kids in Monticello Iowa are simply carrying on a tradition that has been passed down for generations. Maybe I would feel differently if it was my house plastered in white this morning but for now I just laugh and stare in amazement at all the pretty white yards.
Did you ever teepee a house?
