Howdy.

There’s only two more shopping days left until Christmas and yet here you are watching football; not going out for stocking stuffers, not baking Christmas cookies, not hanging up decorations, you’re watching football.

And I, for one, salute you. Anyone can do all the Christmas stuff. It takes someone of real dedication to watch a couple of low-stakes AFC battles. That’s determination right there.
