Hi, I'm Bo Lumpkin and I've been thinkin'.
Football in the South is serious business. I like football and my wife says that I watch too much football on weekends. I really don't understand what she means by too much. I promise I don't watch over 10 hours on Saturday and about 8 hours on Sunday. That ain't no more than 5 or six games a week. I would probably watch more but we ain't got cable.
My wife asks me silly questions about football like, "Are you going to watch football tonight." The answer is always the same, "Only if there is a game on." She will ask, "Who is playing?" If I don't know who happens to be scheduled to play on TV she will say "If you don't know who is playing, how do you know you want to watch it." There is a very simple answer, "I want to watch it because it is football."
I only played football in junior high. I was very small for my age and the coaches used me for a tackle dummy so the big boys wouldn't get hurt. People ask me what position I used to play. I used to play tailback. I know I was a tailback because when I would ask the coach to put me in the game he would yell, "Get your tail back on the bench, Lumpkin."
I'm Bo Lumpkin and I've been thinkin', I wonder if I could convince my wife that gettin' cable would stimulate the economy and possibly save this nation from economic ruin.

  1. I'm sure it would as she would like lifetime and the food network. And Hunter could watch SPONGEBOB. but he would want to watch it on your TV during the game.
