what was your first fight over watching football?
mine was 1970. 8 years old. Mother wanted to go for sunday dinner.
"But, MOOOOMM! The Giant game is on?????"
* In 1970 i lived in South Windsor,CT so my first favorite team was the Fran Tarkenton-Ron Johnson Giants. In 1972 we moved to Cape Cod. By 1975 i was a Boston sports fan for good.
2nd major fight- 1971 season opener. Giants at Packers. Mom decides it a good time for a haircut. Man!!!!
1987 - SueAnn Okerwall looks at me one sunday "football is SO stupid!" within months i move out.
in 1991 Elizabeth says to me, "i love how you love sports on tv so much. its cute"
a year later I marry that woman.
