football is almost here

nfl preseason games sort of suck, so they don't count.

tonight is the first set of games (which i sadly won't be able to watch), but all the stories running up to the season start have got me giddy. if you, too, want to get hyped, here goes:

mike hart suffers tragedy. mike hart overcomes. mike hart is the man.
i'm such a sucker for this human interest story, especially when it shows a guy with some integrity.

fate has dictated that joey harrington will start for the atlanta falcons. he is a very good-looking pianoman with a (from what i can tell) hot wife. gay men also love him.

few of you guys probably care about UVA football (plus they're not incredibly good, sorry maggie), but another "ali is a loser" story piqued my interest the other night. i think i just like the love story at the end between the 22-year-old inside linebacker and his wife (they connected at church!) kind of young, if you ask me, but makes for good reading.

Haha, thanks for the mention, even if it was accompanying an insult to my school. I read that article. The love story kind of makes me want to barf, but that's because I've become a cynic in my old age. I do like how he bases his diet on fruits and vegetables because "God didn't make fast food and coke."
