Are you ready for some football?
Lots of cool things are about to start. Real Time with Bill Maher kicked off last night. With election season in full swing, Bill should have plenty to mock about the depressing state of American politics. Next week the NFL season begins, which I'm looking forward to in a big way after eight years away. Last night we all went to University of Phoenix Stadium, host to about the best Superbowl ever last year and only about 15 minutes from my place in the west valley, and we all watched the Cardinals take on the Broncos. There were tons of people from Denver here in Phoenix for a pre-season game, and many took this game of mostly scrubs pretty seriously. This guy two seats in front of us argued with the Cardinals fan next to him like it was an Arab-Israeli negotiation. Lots of "we" words thrown around as if he were on the team. My baby girl is fascinated with lights, so she enjoyed gazing at the sky. It was the first time for both my boys to see a professional sporting event or an arena like this, so it was not a lot money well spent -- I had co-workers who gave me the seats. Thanks Bryan.
