NFL 2012 Week 8 Preview

Inspired by giddy teeny-boppers, it is nice to know there is one place to get away from them. Escaping to Florida allows us to enjoy the NFL 2012 Week 8 Preview in peace.

SOUTH FLORIDA, October 27, 2012—Before getting to the NFL 2012 Week 8 Prequel, let me get deeply personal. Inspired by the absolutely brilliant youths Lena Dunham and Katy Perry, I want America to know about my first time.

It was amazing. I cried. It was the most spiritual experience of my life. When it was over I just wanted the other person to hold me. Instead, I settled for a handshake as they said those words that still get me emotional.

“Ok, Mr. Golub, your DirecTV is now installed. You have the NFL package and can now watch all of the football games. Here are the channels where you can watch the games in high definition. Now let me show you how to operate your remote control.”

That Sunday was more beautiful than I could have possibly imagined, and I will always cherish it.

Years later, it remains special. Now let’s enjoy some more special moments with giddy teeny-boppers talking in the background. Let’s get to football.
