Men and the F Word

26 Feb

You know what annoys me about men? Well, one thing that annoys me…you don’t need to be here all day – you’ve got work to do, I’m sure.

The thing that annoys me is that as soon as September hits, they have a one track mind. Football. Football, football, football.

Honestly, I think that most Southern men would turn down a threesome with Jessica Alba and Julianne Hough if it happened to fall on a college football Saturday. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love me some college football (shout out – Mark Richt, I heart you) but it isn’t my life. I wouldn’t like, not go on a free vacation or something because Georgia played Auburn that week. I can root for my team from Italy, you know? And it’s not like me being there helps at all. I showed up last year for Alabama, blacked out even, and we all know what happened then. And, Florida? We. Don’t. Discuss. It.

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could just live our lives freely, without having to wonder who plays who the weekend your friend from college is getting married?

    said friend must not be from around here, considering no good, honest southern girl would dare get married on a football game weekend!

    In NC it is the Bword “basketball” that is. I am just glad I grew up with 2 men in my life that got me use to this whole sports craze at an early age. Now I don’t think they are “too crazy” and can kinda join them… You’ve seen me at a Carolina game đŸ™‚

    You can have a life with no worries about football games. You do not have to worry about it if you are single!

    On the wedding date…I agree. I had one of those once, and I selected an open date weekend for UGA (Vanderbilt at home for South Carolina), and had it on a Friday night. Respect for the football.Erica, you are just as bad as any guy – don’t front.And anon – good point. I will, however, miss those family season tickets. Some Saturdays, anyway.

    Oh, Mandi! I love you so…but I totally have to disagree…football is simply that important. xoxo-m
