Now is the time for all Seahawks fans to wash the jerseys they've been wearing all year and to analyze what went wrong. (Was it because I didn't wear my lucky socks? Forgot my Seahawks bling?) At least they lost fair and square. Sure, the armchair quarterbacks will have their say but at least we won't be talking about bad calls from the coaching staff or referees for the next several months.
Suddenly, it is a dangerous time of year. It's the time between football and NASCAR. It's the time when there are no sports on TV.
That's not entirely true, of course. There is hockey and basketball on TV as well as golf and professional bowling. But in this household, there will be dead space on the weekends when there should be cheers and jeers emanating from the Man Cave and copious amounts of time spent there, a place where I can keep an eye on Hubby and be assured of his whearabouts.
Sure, there are a couple of weeks left until Super Bowl but without the Seahawks in the running, Hubby is less invested. Without his full attention on sports, hazards abound. Today Best Buy put the Samsung - 60" Class (60" Diag.) - LED - 2160p - Smart - 3D - 4K Ultra HD TV on sale - half off! And, the Portland and Seattle Boat Shows are both in the next few weeks.
This time of year can get very expensive if I can't find something for Hubby to do. I find this is a good time for making Honey Do Lists, not to mention hiding his wallet.
Maybe I can turn this to my advantage. Valentine's Day is around the corner, too. If only I can get Best Buy to put diamonds on sale, I'd be all set. Or, maybe, a trip to someplace warm.
I'm thinking Hawaii but, sure, Daytona is warm, too.
