OH MY GOD, YOU GUYS, IT'S FOOTBALL SEASON FINALLY!!
And I'm not the only one who's excited!!
The Ravens and the Steelers both have their first preseason games tonight (8/9/12), and honestly? It couldn't come have come soon enough. Surprisingly, the Baltimore Orioles are doing GREAT this year, but after decades of disappointment and sorrow, I'm terribly jaded about their ability to play baseball well. My fiance is pretty stoked though.
Shawn and I are also hoping that the beginning of football season will curb the amount of NFL players getting arrested every week. Maybe with something exhausting and positive to do with their time, players will feel less inclined to get hammered and drive their cars into things or punch their moms or get caught with a ton of weed in their possession. One can only hope.
