Something so unbelievably cute happens this time of the year, every year.
My sweet Rich has been a Redskins fan, devoted and as true as they come, since he was a tiny little boy. Every year, and especially since the best ever coach is back on board, starting in the Spring when they are talking about changing team players around and culminating now with training camp, Rich and all of the other cute Redskins fans are getting so excited, dreaming of making the playoffs and maybe even going all the way to the big game. Oh, they are all so hopeful. I just love it.
Now, you might have guessed, I don't know an awful lot about football. I am always saying the wrong words like commenting on their costumes and saying that the quarterback got bagged (instead of sacked). I tried early in our relationship to learn more about the sport since it's just so important to my lovey. I do know more about it now but mostly just from it being on the television every single Sunday all autumn long.
By tomorrow, the heat is due to break. And since it will be a little more comfortable out, we are planning to join thousands of other fans to witness a bit of the training camp. I'm a little excited. I think I'll pack a picnic of snacks. It will be fun to spend the morning with Rich, being a part of his favorite sport and his favorite team.
Maybe I should try to learn all of the words of the fight song.
