Dear Fiancee,

We have had a great Spring/Summer. We kicked it off with our wonderful engagement, and it continued with all the wonderful money spent towards planning..in fact that seems to be the gift that keeps on giving given the current state of my back account. Anyway, we went out to eat, we shared great happy hours, we watched The Wire, Newsradio, and countless other television programs. We kept our arguments down to a minimum, survived an air-condition-less June, and we did other things that will not be discussed in this blog (my future mother-in-law is reading). To sum things up, I have absolutely enjoyed our time these past few months, and I hope you have too..in fact, I hope you bottle up and save it because...

Tomorrow night the football season starts when the Vikings take on the Saints tomorrow night on NBC. From now on, my Sundays and my Monday nights will be filled with real and fantasy football. I'll watch football on tv, and then run to my laptop to see how my fantasy team is progressing. I know I should find a better way to balance you and football, but after 3+ years of us being together, you should know that I cannot. Its not that I don't love you, its just that football reigns supreme..its an unstoppable force that has been sweeping me up off my feet for 30 years or so. I can't stop it, I can only hope to contain it. Plus, next year there may not be a football season, because of NFL labor issues, so you have that to look forward to right?

Also adding insult to injury, is the fact that the Washington Wizards will start their preseason activities at the end of the month, and that will further cut into our time. As you know, writing for the Wizards is basically my second job, so that's a legit reason to occasionally snub you..Please know that none of these things lessen my love for you, they just may lessen my time. But I pledge to have a strong presence in your life, on those rare days when there's no basketball or football. Also, please know that I am not one of those guys who needs to leave the house, and go somewhere to get sloppy drunk just to watch games. I can sit at home, alcohol (and shower) free and create the illusion that I'm right there with you, when in reality, I'm lost in football...

And when all else fails, and you're ready to kick my ass or curse me out, look forward to that glorious Dec. 11th date when we will be married in Miami. That should bring a smile to your face..hell I'm smiling while I type it.

Love,

Rashad

Aw man, that's not fair. See during this time she may do a little bit of extra planning for the wedding and surprise you even more with the size of your bank account.

Kim,
So what you're saying is that football season is a "W" for all parties involved!
