You might still think it’s summer, but the picture below is evidence that fall is officially here…
This is the den upstairs in our house. And yes… those are three TVs all tuned to NFL football thanks to the glorious invention that is NFL Sunday Ticket. (well… it’s glorious when it actually works… as it was severely malfunctioning for the first half of the morning games this weekend)
You might think that this leads to incredibly lazy Sundays of sports absorption, but let me just tell you how difficult it is to watch 3 games (or more) at once and track your two fantasy teams at the same time, let alone carry on a conversation with one of the many guests hopping in and out of the house on a Sunday. Even if you’re not a football fan, the pure spectacle of so much action on three screens will captivate your brain… or at least that’s what seems to happen with the “non-fans” that come over and stay for hours on end.
The only thing missing from the den is a kegerator, and we’d truly have a sports bar upstairs in second living room…. but we get enough beer stock from all of the guests, so it’s not really any sort of necessity. (I kid, I kid… but I really did have severe kegerator envy every time I saw one in a beach house on the Strand…)
Now I just need to plan out some crowd-pleasing breakfasts, assign snack duty to friends, and we’ll be ready for each Sunday that comes at us from here til January!
Anyone else enjoy their comfy Sunday spot on the couch (or bar stool) yesterday?
