Beating the Off-Day Blues: Happy All Saints Day!

No, it isn't November 1st, but it is the first official NFL game of the season, and hottie Drew Brees and his Saints are going to destroy Grandpa Farve and his Vikings.

I'm fixin' ta head to meet up with friends to watch the game in midtown this evening. It should be ridiculous amounts of fun, especially since there isn't a Yankees game to watch tonight and the White Sox are playing now *UPDATE* already lost to the Tigers (Dang it, Johnny!).

I'm not about to become Your Football Girl, though. While I enjoy the gameplay, I'm not looking to dive head first into obsession with another sport. And, to be completely honest about it, I've only been a Saints fan since this time last year. While visiting my family last September, my brother in-law and I made a pact: I root for the Saints and he roots against the Red Sox (he said as a Texan, he could never cheer for a team called "Yankees"). It worked; both of our teams won their respective championship titles and my bro in-law and I bonded over our mutual hatred of sports teams from New England.

I can't imagine I will have too much else to say about NFL before the end of the World Series, but you never know. In the meantime, Geaux Saints!
