Sorry, but I'm just not a big fan of football. I think it's the ubër tight uniforms, grunts and all that slapping each other on the bum. And it hurts me just to see these guys slamming each other onto cold, rock-hard AstroTurf. Seems just too weird to me and way too macho. Give me a civilized game of tennis or a Tour de France, any day. But that's just me. So, if you happen to be of my ilk, and in the bay area here's a reminder. It's the 1st Sunday of the month, so that means the Alameda Flea Market is on this Sunday! Skip the Superbowl and the three-layer bean dip (who was the one that put that combination together, anyhow?) and hit the flea market. I'm hoping every one's home on their couches and Lazyboys with a six-pack in their laps, so there's lots of good bargains left to be had by the rest of 'us'. Go team!
