Today’s Five for a Friday…
The NFL season began last night with the Vikings loss to the Saints (…haw haw hee hee…). So today’s Five for a Friday is going to be sports related. I love basketball a lot more than football, and my love for basketball is built (partially) on my playing pick up games for years, serving as my college’s varsity team manager, and a couple years coaching high school girls basketball. BUT even though I breathe basketball, I still love watching football. Last night, Donovan and I ate football food (pizza and soda and BBQ chicken wings) while I taught him some of the rules of the game. He caught on pretty quick…but we agreed that we both like basketball better.

It must be said that today’s Five for a Friday was not written by me. HOWEVER, I loved the post so much that I felt I had to add a link to it here. The post was written a few weeks ago on a blog site I check regularly called VerySmartBrothas (VSB). Some of it is tongue-in-cheek writing. Most (okay all) of it is true…and the best things about the posts on VSB are the comments by the regular readers.
So without further, uh, doo…Today’s Five for a Friday
