I Finally Enjoyed Football

For the life of me I haven't been able to get into football. I can call the Hogs like nobody's business and they've been known to break my heart but that all comes purely from home state pride - something about not taking Arkansas out of the girl. He was born and bred in Ohio so last night when the Buckeyes met the Hogs in the Sugar Bowl, our marriage went down in proverbial flames - much like the first 3 quarters of the Razorback's game play. It was all in good fun though. My Arkansas friends on Facebook made my night.

Also adding to the enjoyment of the evening, the Allstate commercials. This one specifically because our GPS hates us so it hit close to home. I thought I'd piss my pants laughing!

I'm Arkansas born and bred, living in Nashville now-- home for the holidays, watched game with my 94 yr old parents. Happy to report-- no heart attacks. However, I think my sister's granddaughter summed up the whole experience best...

Recalucating!!!!!

Our GPS sent us down a one way street.

PLUS when we got here, Chris wanted to go check out a gun shop...entered gun shop in GPA and off we went.
We ended up in the shadiest neighborhood in El Paso...at a house.
We drove off and didn't not enter.

If the Packers and the Chiefs ever meet in the Super Bowl, I will go to my mother's house for that weekend. Otherwise, it will for sure be divorce up in this piece.

So, I'm with you. Also, since I have no stake in this - Go, Hogs! lol

That Twitter convo is hysterical. Sounds like some of my conversations during NY Giants games, except I get all pissy when they screw up - especially when they threw away thay HUGE lead a few weeks ago and are NOW NOT IN THE PLAYOFFS!!#$&*%!! Sorry... lost myself there for a minute...
As for the Allstate Mayhem commercials, I LOVE them, but haven't seen that one. Reminds me of my old GPS in my Jag that used to tell me to make a U-Turn on the highway up in CT... UM, Yeah, Right!! Then I'd hear the..."recalculating." At least it was a sexy British man's voice...MMMMM!
