Rah-rah-sis-boom-bah … that old college spirit.

On a sweltering hot day, interrupted by round one of what will be two rounds of volatile weather, we welcome in the college football season … U of M kicks off tonight and MSU tomorrow night.

But, it hardly feels like weather to be throwing around a pigskin.

Football is meant to be enjoyed in cozy sweats or swaddled by a stadium blanket, with numb hands curled around a hot drink – not the likes of what temps were out there today.

As Summer wanes (on the calendar anyway), I noticed in my trek this morning that the garden flags festooned with flowers or Summery sayings have been replaced with flags bearing Wolverine or Spartan logos. Even the mischievous (and sometimes evil-looking) garden gnomes are proudly wearing their favorite resin team gear.

I may have hit the ground running early, but the end of my journey today had me dragging my wagon a bit. Though my pedometer registered exactly four miles, it felt like I had logged in twice that amount.

Nevertheless … I’m happy with my result because I gave it the ol’ college try.

About lindasschaub

This is my first blog and I enjoy writing each and every post immensely. I started a walking regimen in 2011 and decided to create a blog as a means of memorializing the people, places and things I see on my daily walks. I have always enjoyed people watching, and so my blog is peppered with folks I meet, or reflections of characters I have known through the years. Often something piques my interest, or evokes a pleasant memory from my memory bank, and this becomes a “slice o’ life” blog post that day. I respect and appreciate nature and my interaction with Mother Nature’s gifts is also a common theme. Sometimes the most-ordinary items become fodder for points to ponder over and touch upon. My career has been in the legal field and I have been a legal secretary for over three decades, primarily working in downtown Detroit, and now working from my home. I graduated from Wayne State University with a degree in print journalism in 1978, although I’ve never worked in that field. I like to think this blog is the writer in me finally emerging!! Walking and writing have met and shaken hands and the creative juices are flowing once again in Walkin’, Writin’, Wit & Whimsy – hope you think so too.

    Be careful of the humidity. My grandson played 3 years of football in Arizona. I thought it was a wrong game to play there and I still do. Something with a pool would be better.

      It was really humid out there. I’ll be glad when this heat wave is over. I thought we had only one more round tonight, but it is rumbling out there again. I would think Arizona is way too hot to be playing football – I agree with you. Good thing Frank pursued medicine and not professional football for his chosen career.
