Fall: A limited time offer

September 23, 2012 - Wes Burns
I do not miss summer.

Since my phone has been beeping FREEZE WARNING at me (why does it think I care?) for the past couple days I can only assume that summer has come and gone, and that global climate change has pushed up the schedule for winter to start sometime next week.

But until then, we get fall.

Sure, summer has its highlights. Long days, warm weather, and enjoyable times outdoors; or so I'm told.

Most of my summer is spent trying to not get heat exhaustion and wondering when new TV is coming back on.

But fall has the trifecta of an enjoyable Sunday: Grilling, football and watching people pretend like they aren't cold while they continue to wear shorts.

Yes, you can grill in the summer. But I prefer to grill when being next to a fire is something you enjoy, and not something you do because it is slightly less hot then standing in the shade.

So I'm going to enjoy the fall, as brief as it may be. I suggest you get yourself a delicious steak and eat it outdoors while listening to the game. Or just bring the TV outside, if that's your thing. Just enjoy it before its gone.
