You know if you want to keep friends and sometimes even relatives there are two things you never discuss—football and politics.
Today I am on my way to a NFL football game. I come from a long line of football fanatics. My two brothers, daughter, son, husband and step-kids all adore the game. The only issue is that it ends up like the Civil war with brother against brother.
I’m for one team (and I’m not saying which one since that would be breaking my rule even though since I’ve lived in the Washington D.C. area most of life it isn’t that hard to figure out) and my husband, stepdaughter, and in-laws are for another.
Now, most of the time things run smoothly and we tolerate each other’s allegiance, unless of course the two teams are playing each other. Today my husband’s team and mine are battling it out.
Interesting to say the least.
To be continued….
