With the NFL season set to open on Thursday night, I spent some time getting my living room ready for game day. That meant moving my recliner into a more prominent position, bringing two end tables up from the basement to accommodate all the snacks and drinks I plan on consuming, and just generally arranging the tv furniture so that my friends and I can get a better view of the game from every seat in the room.
I was thinking of putting up some Bears flags and banners as well, but decided against it at the last minute. After all, it’s not the Super Bowl and it’s not as though Chicago actually has a chance of making it to the post-season with Kyle Orton running the offense!
I also went out and bought a mini-fridge to hold drinks and dip, and can’t wait to set that up right next to my recliner.
Can you tell that I love football?!
