Fight of the Century?

Her View

Like many other people, He and I watched the fight this weekend. What fight? THE fight…Floyd vs Pacman. No, I won’t go through the trouble of looking up the correct spelling of their last names because that’s just how much I care about this fight. After THAT showing, they don’t deserve my time or respect in that regard.

The night sounded really great in theory. We were invited to a fight party at the home of a couple we know through His flag football team. I was very excited to see the wife since I haven’t seen her in nearly two years! (She had a baby and got ghost on me! Life…it happens.) Anyway, we get there and apparently the party is segregated.

Are you ready for some FOOTBALL???? Nope, not exactly. I AM ready for the commercials though! Oh, and snacks! I’m rooting for the Patriots (I was born in New England, therefore I feel a certain obligation), but I like the Seahawks too! Ok, let’s be real…I only know them because of Richard Sherman and now Marshawn Lynch’s awesome press strategy!

I especially enjoy the ones that feature that cute puppy who always seems to find his way back home (with help from the Clydesdales)! Those darn horses are so sweet, caring, and magical! I mean they really look out for their friends! Did you see the one where the baby horse aspires to be like the big horses and tries to pull the wagon all by himself? After a few pulls, it starts to move! He’s doing it!! He’s really pulling it all by himself like a full-grown Budweiser Clydesdale!!! Mama, I made it!!! Then you see where a few of the big boys are actually pushing the wagon from behind. SO SWEET!!! *Wipes watery eyes*
