"Good" Saturday Night Viewing?

Weekend television is not very good if you ask me. Here, there has to be at least 50 (maybe a little inflated) football games starting around 11:00 a.m. on Saturday and running until 11:30 p.m. on Sunday. Enough already!! Yeah, yeah we did watch the Army-Navy game when we were not out and about.

I was flipping through the channels trying to find something other than college football in the early evening. Well, there was the standard offering of celebrity watching channels, rebroadcasts of design shows I already seen, shopping channels, rehashed and spinning news shows and finally I chanced on one of the ESPN stations broadcasting the Gonzaga-UConn basketball game. Considering ourselves former Spokanites, it is hard not to be fans of Gonzaga basketball. We used to watch almost every game. Now, we consider it a rarity to be able to see a game. It was a special treat since the game was close and Gonzaga won. GO ZAGS!!

Well, we kept the TV tuned to that channel as they next broadcast the Oregon-Oregon State football game. I know, a football game. But, for some reason it was nice visit to the Pacific Northwest. Besides, the Oregon State Beavers won in OT. That's OK.

Uh, was there a football game yesterday???

When we went through the Starbucks drive-thru yesterday morning there was a huge SVU all decked out with U of O colors, pennants, big O on the back. There was a stuffed toy beaver hanging in a noose from the back bumper. Oy. Craziness. Ray told me this morning that the Beavers won so I wouldn't embarrass myself in company today, as of course, that was all that anyone wanted to talk about at both social gatherings we went to.
Go beavs.
