I think though that the same technology that brought cable and connectivity here will bring the coverages and broadcasts on to this part of the world eventually. And can you imagine once 'the FEED' and HDTV becomes reality here?!!?? It would be virtual TAILGATE BARBECUE every WEEKEND from September to January in 85-degree weather! Sonofabitchin' absolute football HEAVEN without having to freeze your ass off!
Another interesting phenomenon to note, that what happens around this time of year in America afflicts me too. Schedules, attention to what's going on locally or in the neighborhood, changes in waking, eating and sleeping -- all these manifest themselves as football season wears on. Short of visiting my favorite supermarkets once a week, I'm not going to give a shit about newspapers, politics, religion, santa claus, military uprisings, government, malls, movies, show business, paris hilton, the weather, hell even people around me in general -- and nearly everything that happens outside this football axis. In short, I'll effectively be from another planet and time in the next few months which you can appropriately label my 'American Football Ramadan Uranus' state.
Just so you all know where I am until this forthcoming Oarhouse Thanksgiving, the typically insufferable Manila Christmas, and the one and only climactic sports event of its kind, the Super Bowl.
(This post is dedicated to Hunter S. Thompson and that other extraordinary American, George Plimpton -- both of whom in their own participation, observance and writings on the sport -- inspired this piece.)
