Roscoe's Notebook


A few of my favorite things

Growing up a football player and fan in Northern Indiana, having the Notre Dame Fighting Irish as one of my favorite teams was only natural. And they still are. So I'm happy to be following their game against Louisville this afternoon.

Then as a transplanted Texan I found it only natural to fit in with this state's love of football. And among my favorite Texas teams are the Texas A&M Aggies who are playing a late afternoon game. When the Notre Dame game ends I'll be able to switch to a local AM radio station to follow the 2nd half of the Aggies' game.

And at 19:00 local time I'll have my Saturday night favorite Svengoolie to watch.

The pandemic and lockdown restrictions may have me stuck at home, but that doesn't prevent me from enjoying some of my favorite things.

And the adventure continues.

College Football Saturday! Yes!

My favorite way to follow football has always been to listen to good play-by-play coverage over the radio.

I can close my eyes and “see” the game much better while listening to the radio than by watching on TV. And I'm happy to find a full schedule of live games playing on TuneIn Radio that will keep me entertained through this afternoon into the early evening.

This is my post 69/100/365 of the 100 days blogging challenge. (And it's posted mostly from my phone, so I'm not able to format it as I'd otherwise like to.)
