From all of us at The Pewter Plank, to all of you, Happy Valentines Day. A lot of people don’t like Valentines day, maybe because you’re single or you think it’s a made up greeting-card holiday, but I like to think of it football’s Yom Kippur in a relationship context (ok, don’t take that too seriously).
All year we put our significant others through hell in our fanfare of our favorite teams. My girlfriend puts up with football on Sunday and Monday night for the NFL, plus pre-season games all nights a week in August, college games on Saturday and Thursdays and the occasional Tuesday night. My point is the ratio of football to HGTV in our apartment wasn’t fair to her all year, and I’m sure many of you can say the same thing.
But now, in one day, with no risk of missing any football, you can make it up to her in one fell swoop. By some flowers and chocolate, go to a nice dinner and maybe even go the extra mile. But above all, don’t mention football once. You get 364 days a year to love football, take the day off and thank your significant other for letting you be so crazy for the Bucs. Happy Valentines day everyone and go Bucs!
