Today we escaped to Rainbow Springs...to tube....& enjoy nature sounds. The temperature was above 90 degrees. The springs are somewhere around 73. Very nice. I heard birds chirping, children laughing, trees rustling, and Gene Deckerhoff announcing.
Who? you ask...Gene who? Doing what? You read correct. I heard Gene Deckerhoff announcing...a football game....the Bucs versus St.'s game. You see, my husband made me stop at Radio Shack on the way to the Springs. He picked up a transistor radio so that he could float down the spring and listen to the game. The radio was balanced on his belly the entire float. He never actually got out of his tube and into the water.
I was irritated. It wasn't Gene. I like Gene's voice and his announcing is second to none. However, the bucs haven't been the same for me since....Dungy- Now he is with the Colts. & I was always a Bear's fan anyway...Well, since the mid-80s and the whole Super Bowl Shuffle. Who could resist the Super Bowl Shuffle? Not I.
Then, Urlacher became the Bear's golden child...& he is from UNM- Can you believe it? I went to UNM. Just a few years (decades) after Urlacher...but I bet he took the same classes as I did. We could of studied together.
Anyway, As much as I like the Bears, or Coach Dungy- I wouldn't sit with a radio on my belly during a tubing. But, my husband is a loyal fan.
