Trying to sleep but thinking about love.

Rather, falling in love.

In particular, this one aspect of falling in love in which their presence is euphoric to you.

You can lay in bed for days on end, being absolutely nothing but with one another.

You have seen a curve never so beautiful as the one around her cheek to the tiny corner of her bottom lip that tucks its way back into a mini dimple when she smiles. You can see this curve and nothing else, and not just because you are pressing your face as close to hers as you can while still able to see it, but also because of the simple fact that nothing else exists.

If you died and went to Heaven at just such a time, you would not leave. Heaven would make its way down to you to match the feeling of glory so perfected by His very hand in this moment.

You find her hair in your bed sheets when you wake up the next morning and you experience a fraction of the bliss insomuch as the strand of hair is a fraction of her beauty.

You attempt to will the clock backward and to push the Sun back East as it raises with the energy of such powerful emotion, but alas cannot realize it.

It’s too difficult to put into words. But this is my favorite feeling, when it occurs. And most coveted feeling when it does not.

Touchdown Of The Century of the Day: Bengals wide receiver Jerome Simpson somersaults into the history books with one of the most magnificent plays in sports history.

(Alt: It’s a touchdown with a built-in celebration.)

Since I started watching football at four years old I have always wanted to see this happen. I would have never guessed back then that a Bengal would be the one to do it but now it totally makes sense.

So Dallas and Arizona are now in overtime.

And I can’t watch the game. WHY OH WHY didn’t I get Sunday Ticket?

Anyway at least this Packers and Giants game is good.

Go Pack!

Cowboys

They try harder than any team in the NFL to lose games that they should win.

It’s extraordinary, really.

This Looks Shopped of the Day: Accompanying Touré’s controversial ESPN magazine article “What if Michael Vick were white?” (a title he didn’t pick) is an equally controversial photo illustration by D’arcy Hyde that nearly rivals a certain Korean comic strip in its creepiness.
The controversial shopjob was initially removed, allegedly in response to complaints, but was soon restored.
For what it’s worth, Touré doesn’t like it either. “I had no idea they’d put a pic of Vick in whiteface,” he tweeted. “Makes no sense w an  essay saying it’s impossible to re-imagine him as white?”

Very good article about race in the NFL.

The Deion Sanders football fairy just told me that NFL Sunday Ticket is included when you buy DirecTV.

If you already have DirecTV do you get it this season?? Anyone know?
