A 3rd grader asked me what my favorite football team is.
He said he likes the Cowboys.
I said I liked the Utah Utes, and I don't cheer for NFL.
He looked at me all sad.
So I said I guess I like the Broncos because I like Colorado.
He said "You mean the Denver Donkeys?"
And he doesn't let it go.
Weeks have passed.
I asked him what I should be for Halloween.
He said I should be a Bronco football player.
He tells me I'm pretty cool except I like a dumb football team.
He hasn't let it go.
I don't think he ever will.
Never mention professional football to children.
I'm a Ute fan.
My energy is gone.
My motivation to go to college classes is gone.
And I've got five point five months left.
Fall break, you cannot come fast enough.
