Summer: Is it over?

Summer is nearing its time to end as school year starts. This can be hilarious coz I have always been associating summer and school as far as I can remember. Yes, it’s true, right? Why is this so? For the simplest rationale that once the summer is over, can’t sleep late anymore and wake up late, can’t watch TV all day long, can’t play with your friends everyday, instead when classes have started, have to finish assignments, have to sleep early and get up early and because of these undeniably obvious reasons that I can say that summer is almost over. Thus, in the USA, when summer is about to end; the most exciting game is about to begin, the Football season. Oh why, oh why? Yes, football is played during winter season, a time where it is freezing cold, a time where everyone would be in his or her house sipping hot chocolate. Now this is funny, I came about this comedy routine of George Carlin, when he compared Football and Baseball.

“Baseball begins in the spring, the season of new life while Football begins in the fall, when everything is dying. In addition, he said Football is played in any kind of weather: Rain, snow, sleet, hail, fog...can't see the game, don't know if there is a game going on; mud on the field...can't read the uniforms, can't read the yard markers, the struggle will continue! While In baseball if it rains, we don't go out to play. "I can't go out! It's raining out!”

Enough of flowering words, and since it is Football season by now; I am rooting for my husband’s team, which has won 6 Super Bowl Titles, and that is the Pittsburgh Steelers. I have come to know about this just last year when they won the Super bowl and because Dan is really an avid enthusiast. Well, I hope this year they will be able to conquer the Super bowl title, yet again. Go Steelers!!
