Can You Feel It? The Anticipation is Building…

This is my favorite time of year. It’s hot, humid and sticky outside. But inside the fanatic and somewhat neurotic followers of football are heatedly scanning the Internet to find pre-season write ups about their favorite teams. Who’s going to look good? Who’s going to be a Heisman candidate? Who’s going to have a devastating first season and not meet up to their school’s high standards? (I’m not insinuating anything here…there are lots of first-season coaches this year who everyone has an eye on.) This is the best time of year, because EVERYONE is undefeated…nothing has been proven, and you dare to dream that YOUR team is going to the BCS Championship Bowl this year. August 1st is just around the corner, two-a-days are upon us, and season tickets are on sale. To the high school, college, and NFL football fans alike…I wish you a Happy Pre-Season. Right now, we’re all winners.
