Hello and welcome to another edition of Wake Up With Whitty. I’m coming to you late once again, and in a surprisingly okay mood despite the Bengals debacle against the Bears this afternoon. That’s most likely because I slept through the majority of the game, so I didn’t actually have to experience it. Now I know what you’re thinking, “Wow Whitty, some fan you are. Not even watching your team play just because they’re having a down season? You must not be a big sports guy.” Well, my friend, I’m currently battling a severely mild upper respiratory tract infection. The fact that I even have the strength to blog right now is incredible. Hats off to me. It takes a lot of courage to fight through an ailment like this, but I’m playing hurt because of my commitment to the game and the tremendous amount of heart that I have. I bet you feel like a jerk for calling me out for napping during the Bengals game now, don’t you? You should. And you’ve officially made my list. But I’m not going to let haters like you knock me off my game. Because I’m resilient and tough and frankly I’m just happy someone is reading this. Here’s this week’s #WUWW:
Good morning and welcome to another edition of Wake Up With Whitty. We’re heading into weekend number two of the NFL preseason, which is generally your best chance to see some extended playing time from the starting units on each team. We’re also just one short week away from the start of the college football season. As a fan of a sub-par MLB team, it’s a been a painfully long summer from a sports standpoint, but the wait is finally almost over. To get mentally prepared I’ve gathered a collection of old remotes to practice throwing at the TV in anger during tonight’s Bengals/Chiefs matchup. It’s preseason for the fans too you know, so study up on your favorite team’s roster and start practicing your obscenities that you’ll be screaming at its players on Saturdays/Sundays. And once you’ve gotten that out of your system, come back here and leave some positive, uplifting comments about how great this week’s Wake Up With Whitty was.
