We are ready for some football!

We Clark types are very serious about our football.  We have been known to throw things, scream and otherwise “participate” in televised games.  This weekend is Playoffs.  If you have any need to reach me, I suggest you throw a football at my head. (If the need is REALLY great, consider contacting FOX and asking them to run an emergency warning at the bottom of the screen.) Under NO circumstances is anyone allowed to have a crisis.
Otherwise, I will see you again on Monday – either deflated or delirious.   Have a blessed weekend all!

    Hmm, I wonder if we’re related? my mom is a M.A.J.O.R. fan of our local NFL team. when we lived in an apartment we used to warn the neighbors that a football game was on TV and all screaming was due to that. (especially after we had the burly neighbor guy come up with a baseball bat looking for the burglers the first game.) who knows what new neighbors might have assumed.

    since our team is out of the running maybe I’ll cheer for yours.

    You are most definitely a woman after my own heart! And we LOVE Tony Dungy (afterall, we had him first (TB)) and we love any team he coaches!

    Mrs. N & Patricia, SISTAHS!!! ….. ahhh, quite satisfied sigh… 🙂

    Patricia, it was so silly, but when Tony’s son died we cried with him!! (I think it was hearing his pain, rather than just feeling sad FOR him.) He’s such an incredibly Godly man. We feel very blessed to have him here in IN.

    Enjoy the games tomorrow, Ladies!! 😀

    I don’t think it is silly at all to cry when Tony’s son died…aren’t we to weep with those who weep? We certainly did here, too. Tony is our brother in Christ.

    Your header cracks me up! Love it! =)

    Hey Dawn,

    Are you sure that your DH is not at THE game?? We just saw someone on the sideline — white helmet painted on his head, blue beads around his neck, and obviously behaving like an enthusiastic fan to rate national tv — could that have been your Jeff?? [at about 12:30 in the 4th]

    ~just wondering =)
    and btw, we ARE cheering for your Colts!
    This has got to be a stressful game for you all…

    way to go, Colts!

    OK . . the football header and that prim and proper lady having tea over on the side crack me up! 🙂

    We’re going to the Super Bowl, going to the Super Bowl!!!!!!!!! 😀 😀

    Mel, I know EXACTLY who you’re talking about – they showed him a couple of times during the game. I just CRACKED up when I read that. 😆

    md, what can I say? I’m a well-rounded woman. 😉

    Patricia, I was so impressed that not only did Tony give God all the credit, BUT so did the owner. Irsay (the owner) just didn’t let the reporter go any further without saying that he wanted to give ALL the glory to the Lord. Never heard an owner do that before.

    Now…. Lovie vs Tony?!!! How wonderful, yet how sad. Bet they don’t wait until Monday night to call one another. 😆 (They’re such good friends that they call one another every Mon pm.) Today in an interview Lovie said, “Well, Tony is another man of God who just loves the Lord….” I just SO appreciate the character that these men display.

  9. Wow!!!! What a game! A real nailbitter! I am sooooooooo thrilled for Tony!

    Well, we’re excited over here, but for a slightly different shade of blue, I think! I’m looking forward to Feb. 4!

    Dawn, I sat in the room doing my sudoku whilst hubby watched the game. He was rooting for your team the whole time. 😉 At the end, he said it was probably the most exciting and best game he’s ever watched! He even had #2 (first born boy) watching with him. #2 wanted to stay up and watch the end of the game (at 1 min to go). This is something new!

    It was SO much fun. We were whooping and hollering and carrying on like idiots! 😀 But, we were doing it together and we were all having fun. (We all had our Colts hats on too – well, kind of. I gave mine to Booger to drool and chew on. Ahhh, the sacrificial heart of a mom.) But it was a TRULY great game.
