I look forward to Monday nights in football season for MNF—-Monday Night Football.  Anticipation of the first-night sporting event makes Mondays more endurable, kind of like an extension of the weekend.  The anticipation of a competitive match-up builds suspense throughout the day.

31-14 at the end of 3rd quarter? Where's the remote? Time for the 10:00 news.

But nothing throws a wet blanket on Monday night football cheer like a MNB–Monday night blowout.  That’s what’s going on tonight) as the Packers are beating the Chiefs’ brains out (figuratively).  So at the end of the lop-sided third quarter, I opted for the 10:00 news, even though I saw most of the same news pieces at 6:00.

Truly,  life’s too short to endure a one-sided football game, especially between two random teams that don’t interest me other than their potential for competing.

Alas, I’ll have to tough it out until Thursday night, hoping for a  contest then.  Here’s hoping that TNF will not be TNB.
