The Silence Is Deafening

>> Wednesday, November 4, 2009

Okay, okay, okay (Toddler says I say that a lot -- or at least, I say it sometimes, and Toddler says it a lot). I am getting the message.

You don't like the football posts. The response to my attempts at sporty Wednesday humor has been underwhelming, and for those of you that have responded (all three of you), your comments have not been what a good humor blogger wants to hear. ""You have to really be into football to follow them." "Not as funny as the rest." And, the best one of all, from DH, "It's fine, honey." That last one is the kiss of death -- the blogger's version of "Yes, Dear," the sentence that simply means, "If I say something affirmative, will you be quiet and go away?"

Ugh.

So, just to show that I am reasonable, this will be the last officially scheduled Wednesday Football Wrap Up. From now on, you can tune in on Wednesdays with the same uncertainty as any other day. The catch is that I reserve the right to sneak in football jokes and the occasional monologue without warning, and you'll have to live with it.

Fair enough?

Seriously -- I hope you like the change. I agree that my passion for football makes me think I'm more entertaining then anyone who doesn't share my brain thinks I am. I further agree that most of you probably don't salivate over football like I do (although at least 3 of you do). At least this way I don't have to figure out how to hold a space for the Wednesday post. Nor do I have to keep waking DH up for College Game Day Final saying, "Here. I fixed it again. Read it and tell me if its better or worse."

As for my ego ... it, too, will survive.

And, for the record, in case you were all tuned out and not paying attention: WE ARE........

PENN STATE!!!!!!!!

Have to admit. Not a football fan, or sports fan of any type. So I didn't read the sports blog entries. So ego be spared. It wasn't your writing. But us non-sports fans can just ignore. You've got to write what you enjoy.

The way I figure it, I had two loyal sports readers (a husband and wife couple), and my mother. My mother will read anything I write, so that almost doesn't count, except that she is a rabid Ohio State fan and loves the anti-Michigan yucks. As for my other two friends, we all mutually agreed I can just send them an email once a week. (Grin.)

This is better. I don't do "structure" well, after all.

Thanks for sparing my ego.
