After arriving at the church office this morning I decided that as a form of preparation for tonight's Carolina game, I would carry around a football all day. (Well, at least until kickoff.) The football would not touch the ground until after kickoff. So far, it's traveled with me all around the office and to lunch at Roundtable. (As pictured above.) It was pretty crowded there, so the hostess asked if she could put my football at a table to reserve it for us. "I'm sorry," I responded. "College football starts today. I've got to keep it with me. It's kind of an all day thing."
