Flash Friday 55: Are You Ready?

(AP photo from Google Images)


Are you ready for some football?

Preseason follies (fleecing):
where NFL demands
regular ticket prices
for games,
in the grand scheme
of the season,
don’t even matter.

Players risk serious injury
trying to score
coveted title:
NFL pro.

Pity to those cut…
woe to those deemed
practice squad material.

Still we watch…
Pass the peanuts.

It means the boys will be out of the house of Friday nights to watch the high school games! Yay! So much quiet!

That photo looks like it's about to be painful! Enjoy the new season.

I watch as I comment on how empty the stands are. Watch to the end in order to see players fighting for jobs and playing their hearts out. Last night's Ravens / 'Skins game was FANtastic.
