Ah fall, when a middle-aged woman's fancy turns to... football. In this woman's case, the New York Giants and the New York Jets, who open their respective seasons this Sunday.
First up, the Jets take on the Texans in Houston at 1 p.m. (For those who care, the game airs on CBS, with Jim Nantz and Phil Simms providing the usual drivel.) This will be the first NFL start for Jets' rookie quarterback Mark "Even Cuter than Tom Brady!" Sanchez, and I can't wait.
Then at 4:15 p.m. ET over on Fox (oh joy, Joe Buck and Troy Aikman -- bleh), the Giants will be hosting the Washington Redskins -- and we will get to see if quarterback Eli Manning is worth the $106.9 million the Giants are paying him (over six years).
Am desperately trying to get the daughter a playdate as for some strange reason she has no interest in football. (We already told her, weeks ago, that mommy and daddy were not to be disturbed during game time.) My other dilemma? Deciding which thong to wear.
Anyway, I will be posting my impressions of both games either Sunday night or Monday morning.
