to you that football season has arrived?  The one sound every year that reminds me it's football time is the sound of shotguns being discharged. I live in a rural area and Sept. 1 is always the start of dove hunting.

I live behind a HS. When I start to hear the marching band practice during the day, it's time.

It's never been a sound for me. It's always been a smell and feel. When you wake up in the morning and go outside and there is a nip in the air and you smell the damp grass after a chilly night, it's football time.

Nailed it.

A couple days ago I woke up and looked outside and thought to myself "Self, you really need to find a patch of pavement, set up the grill, and knock back a few Blues."

Crackling/blowing of dry leaves when walking outside.  

Even though leaves are many weeks from turning, they start dropping already

When I am raking the different colored leaves in the backyard (yellow, brown, reddish brown) and then I take a step and feel a "squish" only to look down and find a pile of my dog's **** that wasn't picked up under a few leaves ...I mutter to myself "son of a bitch"....that's the sound that reminds me football is around the corner.

Who would want to shoot a dove?

I know I was just kidding.  Big dove hunter here myself.  I'm grinding my chops til dove hunting season, believe me.  Whenever I see one them peaceful bastards, the first thing I think is man, that thing deserves to die.  Nothing makes me feel like more of a man than splattering the brains of those little fellas across a clear September sky.

Is it safe to assume you don't eat meat?

No I eat it every day.  I am perfectly comfortable with the supposed hypocrisy in enjoying a cheeseburger yet also not wanting to shoot doves.

How funny is it that Summer is almost over and we don't even care because it means football is almost here?
