Well, it’s started. In the background, our TV rumbles with the roar of the crowd watching the 49’ers play the Vikings in a pre-season performance. Football season is here.
I’m a secondary football fan. That is to say, I sit with my husband as he watches the games, but my primary activity is usually knitting, beading, reading or even writing. I’ll give my full attention to instant replays when David tells me “Take a look at this,” and from time-to-time I’ll even watch most of the game. I know enough about the sport to be conversant, to recognize teams and major players and understand some strategy and calls made (or missed) by the officials.
For this week’s prompt, use football in a short story, essay or poem or construct a football metaphor to convey an idea or emotion. Please, please share with us what you’ve come up with and I will do the same later in the week. Have fun with this one.
