I learned that I should probably make an appointment with a Cardiologist.
I learned that I might need to invest in some sound proofing.
Most importantly, I learned that pre-season polls don’t mean “Diddly-Poo” (in my best Jim Mora voice). The only team they got right was Bama and for good reason. No. 1 should honestly stay that way the entire season.
I learned to not turn away from any game too soon. When LSU was leading Wisconsin I figured it was all but over. My mistake. Earlier in the week I also turned away from the Tennessee game thinking Appalachian State was starting the season off right. Imagine my embarrassment telling a co-worker about how App. State stole an early season win.
I learned that my cable providers are a bunch of a-holes. Somehow they had a major outage in my area during the Texas game and the cable did not come back on until 3 a.m. I won’t put them on blast – unless it happens again.
I learned that the University of Houston could get a victory over an Oklahoma team that is good but was beaten in every category. Tom Herman has turned the national spotlight on Cullen. This a great time to be a Coog.
I’m a fan and thought that I could no longer be amazed with football – boy, was I wrong. Here’s hoping this is just a series in many lessons to be learned this season.
