Listening to the game on the radio...

Last night I couldn't go over to Prescottbear's house to watch the game as I am just now finishing my Covid protocols. And I don't have regular TV, only Sling. So I couldn't watch the game. . So, as I do from time to time, I pulled my chair up close to the radio (computer) and settled in to listen. Pete is a great announcer. . When I grew up, it was the end of the radio era and the beginning of TV, but I had enough experiences to be connected to those days, and of course we were all familiar with the old pictures of families gathered around the "box". There was an odd resurgence when transistor radios arrived but they were more of an away from home thing. . So there I sat listening, and it was a heck of an exciting game to listen to. I realized that I was leaning in or pushing back along with the ebb and flow of the game. I threw my hands up in frustration, and I threw my hands up to signal a Trojans touchdown. I got a lot of exercise in front of the radio last night. Then I realized I had stepped back in time for a few wonderful hours when America was the America that we are losing now. It was America the Beautiful and I was at peace. prescottbear, Troianus Acies, TheRealAirbns and 9 others like this.
