Who won the game?

YOU CAN TAKE the guy outta sports, but you can't take sports outta the guy. That's pretty much my motto when it comes to escaping to the man cave and watching the game, or going back to work part-time in sports at The Whig.

I spent most of Sunday recovering from a raucous HartLyss gig in Mount Sterling. I thought about calling up some friends to see if there was any pickup pond hockey going on. I even considered venturing out on Quincy Bay or maybe down to South Park to see if the ice was thick enough. But my bad back and recovering from the rock and roll truck shut down my motivation.

Who won this last night?
So I stayed home and watched the NFL playoff games and was asleep by 9 p.m. I'm not old, I'm experienced. Right. Just keep telling yourself that, Hoser.

One thing I really miss is watching all the college bowl games. Almost every one was on ESPN, and we don't have cable or Dish anymore. Adams keeps promising the newfangled fiber lines will soon be installed, but I'm not holding my breath.

Last night the national championship game was played in Florida and I completely forgot about it until I went to bed. It wasn't on the radio. So I fell asleep wondering who won, hoping is wasn't Alabama. Then again, I didn't have to go through the agony of watching my Wolverines lose their bowl game last week, or whenever it was.

I didn't even know the final result until just before coming to the store. It was kind of neat looking up the highlights and seeing all the depressed Alabama fans.

So I missed a thrilling college football title game. But I got a lot of sleep and feel good this morning. Maybe being experienced and without cable isn't such a bad thing, after all.
