Interestingly enough, two days after I announced via this blog that I was looking forward to football season, Matt came home with a particularly large grin on his face. Allegedly, Direct TV happened to call him to woo him into keeping our satellite service. After whispering sweet nothings into his ear about him being such a loyal and valued customer, they dropped the ultimate pickup line. Matt claims that they offered– with no prompting of his own– to provide us (ahem… him) with the NFL Sunday Ticket package for free for the next six months. Matt’s story is that he had no choice but to accept this offer, as it is saving us money… of course, appealing to my frugal side. I still think something seems a bit sketchy with this story, but in the meantime, I haven’t seen anyone this excited about a few extra channels in my entire life.

Oh, and not to gloat or anything, but I cannot help but mention that William and Mary did, indeed, beat UVA. And those Spiders made me proud by beating the Blue Devils! Now, if Tech had just hung in there, it would have been a perfectly splendid evening of football last night..
