Are You Ready For Some Football?!

Sunday, February 6, 2011

As per my step-father, who is diehard Pittsburgh fan (and former resident), I've been instructed to root for the Steelers. While I have been known to enjoy a Superbowl party in years past, this year it'll just be me and the kiddos at home. So, we may tune in to Fox to catch some of the game, but our tube will be mostly fixed on The Puppy Bowl. What's your plan for the big game?


Here are some favorite football quotes to get you geared up for a great game:

Football is, after all, a wonderful way to get rid of your aggressions without going to jail for it. ~Heywood Hale Brown

Academe, n.: An ancient school where morality and philosophy were taught. Academy, n.: [from academe] A modern school where football is taught. ~Ambrose Bierce, The Devil's Dictionary

Most football players are temperamental. That's 90 percent temper and 10 percent mental. ~Doug Plank

Let's face it, you have to have a slightly recessive gene that has a little something to do with the brain to go out on the football field and beat your head against other human beings on a daily basis. ~Tim Green

You have to play this game like somebody just hit your mother with a two-by-four. ~Dan Birdwell
