He Said: I’m Going Back to College

I’m a huge football fan.  I grew up watching and playing the sport religiously.  A football player was the second thing I wanted to be when I was a little kid, right after policeman.  Every Sunday I was in front of the television, and when I got old enough to stay up, I watched Monday Night Football.  All that time, I never realized that there was football being played on Saturdays too.  

Growing up in Washington, DC, there were no college football powerhouses, no big rivalries, no national title contenders.  I didn’t get to be a part of any big college football games like folks did in Alabama, Michigan, Ohio, Texas, or Florida.  Even when I got to college at Liberty University, the biggest schools that we played were Villanova, Carson-Newman, and Delaware State.  Not exactly powerhouses of college football.  I occasionally watched Barry Switzer’s Oklahoma Sooners or the Jimmy Johnson Miami Hurricanes, which eventually became my favorite college team, but it wasn’t the NFL.

LADIES VS FELLAS WEEK 7

“ALL MY ‘SHE SAID’ GIRLS, LET ME SEE YOUR HANDS! WAVE ‘EM AT THE FELLAS HATING ON YOU WITH THEIR FRIENDS!”

Let me start with the GREAT news: In the He SAID She Said Fantasy Football League Match up of the Week the guys took another L.  This week’s match up was between my girl (and Dallas Cowboys fan) STAR STUDDED and the man of his blog (also a Dallas Cowboys fan) DNasty.  Friday night DNasty saw STAR STUDDED in person and was talking King Kong size trash.  Taunting her about her bye week players, asking her how she know about the Waiver Wire…just awful!   He was very confident.  And well fellas…he choked!  Let me tell you:  The ROOKIE, STAR STUDDED, handled her biz against your league commish DNasty. Proud of you lady! Even happier that the fellas took another L!

DA-DA-DA-DAAAAA! What a Monday Night It Was…

We watched our favorite teams (The Dallas Cowboys for me and The Washington Redskins for her) go for it on Monday Night Football this week.  Our venue of choice was the Penn Quarter Sports Tavern.   The main reason this venue got my vote was because there were LARGE, CRYSTAL CLEAR HIGH DEFINITION TELEVISIONS wall to wall everywhere!  The menu has your typical sports bar food (burgers, pizza, wings) and the prices were great.  Especially the half off wings after 7pm!  We had a few friends show up and we took over the best spot in the house:  the second floor right against the wall where you could see about  8 TVs lined up on the opposite wall!   Talk about the perfect venue!  Continue reading


The Underdogs are stomping with the BIG DOGS…Week 3

HE SAID She Said FOOTBALL Week 3

Week 3 is THE week for HE SAID She Said FOOTBALL!  The only thing…our game (Redskins vs Cowboys) is Monday night!  As a result, we stayed in and ordered pizza.  There were 2 great games on Fox that we got to watch (along with Stattracker for the HSSS Fantasy Football League).

1pm:  An anticipated show down of our division rivals: The Eagles vs The Giants.  I fully expected the GMEN to lose, but hoped they would win.  Well WIN they did!  As banged up as the Giants are, they came to play, especially that Victor Cruz!  He had some BIG TIME plays yesterday that made the Eagles Defense look as overrated as I thought they would be.  HA!  Cruz danced all through the end zone.  A great replacement for Manningham.  On another note, I do not think Michael Vick was ready to play.  He looked off all day and now to add another injury-his hand is broken.  Andy Reid should have prepped Kafka all week to ensure he was ready…for that terrible performance, Andy Reid could have gotten Vince Young’s impersonator to come in and play….

The First Day of Fall Football Saturdays

I know exactly what you are thinking: who is THAT kid?  Well #40 is my bestie’s son and today was his team’s Homecoming.  He plays for the Spirit of Faith Warriors.  Watching a kid like Amon play is really exciting.  He captures the essence of football for me.  At his young age, he has a passion for the game.  In fact, the boy suits up and runs plays in his room.  He is able to have competent sports talk with adults at the age of 11.  He reads sports articles and watches ESPN, but he is also a scholar at school with EXCELLENT grades.  I’m very proud of him!
