The stretch run

Was reading some sportsbook reviews at SportsBettingWorld.com and realized we're getting down to the end of football season. That makes me a little sad. We enter into it with such haste and excitement. And then we blink and it's gone. College basketball even started Friday night in Athens. And although it's way too early to even think about the NCAA Tournament, soon that will be all we have to look forward to. We'll close the bowl season, gear up for the Super Bowl and then football will be done. Gone. Over.

So I plan to cherish every moment that I can. We often make fun of all the bowls these days, with their outlandish names and their strange locales. But for me it's the cherry on top of the season full of delicious ice cream. And if that's the case for you as well, we're down to our last couple of bites to what has been a great season thus far.

If the Dawgs can finish the month the way we have started the month, I might spend all of December dancing like the infinitely drunk Ron Swanson. These last two regular season contests and then the date with Bama (most assuredly) set the table for the month of December leading up to the bowl game, wherever that may be. Like Swanson advises when bowling - "Straight down the middle. No hook, no spin, no fuss. Anything more and this becomes figure skating."

I don't know exactly what the future holds for this team, but I do know that it's been a fun ride getting here. I'm hoping the best is yet to come.

Go Dawgs!
