football rivalry
the streets are empty
non-fans win the day

  8. Ha! True, true. I'm not usually up on who's playing who! (or, 'whom,' but that just doesn't sound right talking about football....)

  10. Hehe--I laugh if I go to Target during a big Vikings game, and the store is empty. Hoorah!

  11. I hear you! My husband and son watch football incessantly. I don't seem to have the patience for football on TV unless it is the Super Bowl. I just signed up for the last open PF for next year. Let me know if it is available please.
