    In about an hour I'm off to my favorite watering hole. It will be the last free Friday night I will have for 17 weeks.

    Football, y'know.

    Maybe when I get back (if I don't drag some young filly home) I can start an Ask Drunk thread.

    Maybe we can turn the fallout shelter into the official home of all "Ask Drunk..." threads.

    High school football started here last night, tonight's the first big one.

    We had a couple of schools play last Friday and tonight, but the real insanity begins next week with high school and college starting.

    As I told my friends, see you in about 15 weeks.

    I hope you have a small army of helpers.

    We do. Four or five people in tonight for no reason other than to answer phones and type in box scores. Our computer programmer saves us most of the work with a nifty program that updates records, standings, stat leaders, etc., automatically as the results are typed in.

    I just have to make sure the one paragraph summary makes sense and is accurate for each of the football, soccer, volleyball and other games.

    The management over there would frown on that.

    I'll join you, F_B.

    I'm hoping to be drunk off my fucking ass in about an hour.

    I'm with you, man. No more watching lousy baseball games, waiting for phones to ring nonstop. I love football, which makes the realization both a blessing and a curse. I'll take it, though.

    We start next Friday night, and I'll be in the slot. I've long said the only times I miss writing are 11 Friday nights each year.

    It will, however, mark the renewal of our Friday post-shift tailgates in the newspaper parking lot. Good times.
