Monk tells Pop, "I thought you were saving those hot dogs for the Cowboys tomorrow."

He mumbles. He couldn't wait, wanted something tonight. I remind him, "You still have that pizza."

He says, "Oh, yeah, that's right! Good."

I will be taping the game myself. When we were getting our groceries, Pop remarked that it's not going to be the same watching the Cowboys without Romo. And I feel some regret for not turning on to football a year or two ago. I know nothing of Romo. I couldn't pick him out of a line-up, and I guess the Romo era was a big one for Cowboys fans. For me, it all started getting unreal when Staubach left. I was a little familiar with Danny White, but it still wasn't the same, and I was well on my way to losing all interest in any sports anyway.

Hmm, I wonder if my renewed interest in baseball and football reflects a loss of a good deal of my brain cells. For the past 20 years, I would have preferred getting shot to watching a game. It seemed like such a waste of life. With pornography, you at least take care of a necessary body function. But now here I am: hungry to watch some games. Books are no longer the be-all-end-all for me as they used to be. I don't have the concentration to read as much as I used to. I feel like taking it easier, be more mellow, as my time runs down to its last grains.

Checking out my Twitter trends, I am surprised to see UTSA on the board. And it's actually my old UTSA and not some insurance company. The school is actually making its mark in college football. That's pretty big. They beat Baylor today. Pretty big.

San Antonio has wanted its own football team forever, albeit in the NFL. Having a college team should be more than a mere consolation, especially if the team has some promise of being a contender, can win some games.
