I went to the local Barnes and Noble the other day and experienced a wide range of emotions during my visit.
One, was pure happiness and excitement. The new Phil Steele Magazine was out. Ahh…how glorious. I made the mistake of buying the Athlon on Monday. To me, Athlon (I don’t even bother with Lindy’s or SI) are just something to fill time before you can get your hands on Phil Steele. So I wasted 8 bucks.
But Christmas came early and I got the Phil Steele. I was giddy as I flipped the pages to read his glowing prediction about Georgia. I won’t ruin anyone’s experience if they haven’t had the opportunity to read for themselves, but having Steele on your side makes you feel a lot better about your team’s chances, even though I am trying to curb my enthusiasm.
I had a wide range of emotions in the magazine aisle. I was excited for what Steele was saying.
But reading Phil Steel made me excited, then I got nervous. He has good things to say, and inevitably the team will disappoint-as has been the case the last three seasons. So my excitement quickly turned to nervousness.
As I was walking to the check out, I walked by the New Release section. There I saw Tim Tebow’s autobiography, Through My Eyes. The book cover is a full page size picture of Tebow’s face with the title of the book written in his signature eye black. My excitement and nervousness quickly turned to disgust. I mean, what a doofus.
Anyway, I have yet to delve fully into my new magazine, but I plan to take a few sticky notes home from the office today (shhhh) and do my annual marking of relevent pages in the magazine.
