As many of you guys know, I have an addiction to sports, particularly the NFL. I love just about everything about it. It’s fascinating and I like to break down just about everything that I see during the game.
So I thought I would show you guys what I was doing while watching the Eagles-Giants Sunday Night game back on September 30th.
For those that are not football fans, some of this might be cryptic. However, everything that is on this blog following this explanation was written on the spot during the game.
Enjoy my mind!
