Has The Jinx Returned?

The jinx may be back.  I went out to do some grocery shopping (We're have one of the Wife's nieces and her room mate over for dinner tomorrow night).  I get home and look at the score - Notre Dame 21 Michigan 0.  In the few minutes I took to unpack and put away the groceries, Michigan scores.  I sit down to drink a soda and a Notre Dame pass is intercepted.
I got the hint, grabbed a cookie, my book, and the remainder of my soda and went down in the basement (I was doing laundry too and that's in the basement).  I found Homer wearing his Notre Dame Victory Scarf  cowering in the tornado room - actually a storage room off the laundry room.  He doesn't like the sound of the game or the cheering and clapping of the Wife.  It must of worked since Notre Dame scored another touch down while I was downstairs.
I guess I know my place on Saturday afternoons - anywhere except watching the game.

  4. JaG: It is. Homer doesn't like football ... or the Wife yelling.

    Wife: That's what you think. Woo Hoo is right.

    GH: We have plenty of room and a nice big ass chair to sit in.

  8. Dobegil: Having lived in SoCal for so long, we are not used to having a basement. It is very big and very comfortable. Plenty of room for everyone.
