    Naked Football

    My work week was long. I still haven’t slept. So I’ll come up with a good post tomorrow. Right now I have mitigated joy on the mind. You see I am an incurable Dallas Cowboy fan.

    We won today. Barely.

    Barely is the appropriate word. Because our defense is laid bare. Naked. Nude.

    It happened on the season opener. Dallas defeated a superior team. But in doing so they showed the whole world all the strengths and weaknesses of their new defense. Don’t get me wrong, I love the improvements. But when you try new things you get new problems. The whole world knows how to split our secondary.

    Last Monday we were defeated by an inferior team due in part to our defensive nudity. Today another inferior team came close to doing the same.

    This is much like my own life. I’m no poker player. I’m no actor. My face is as easy to read as a children’s book. It is pretty easy to know what I will do next.

    So what is the strategy for winning with an open playbook? Simple. Run up the score. Some times the best defense is a good offense. Oh, and uh fix the weaknesses too.
