 h1. Dear readers,

 I can't claim to be much of a football fan these days, although thanks to my enthusiasm for the sport as a teenager (last century), I know my way around a broadcast — at least until it goes into the more arcane aspects of the game. Like what is a safety, again?

 So, I can only be a little disappointed that the broadcast of the national college championship between the Oregon Ducks and the Auburn Tigers next Monday is limited to cable — not the basic cable to which we subscribe, but ESPN, to which we don't. Oh well. 

 My husband suggested maybe we could try for a one-month subscription to full cable, but I'm wary of wading into the cable company quagmire for one game (which, honestly, is probably all we'd use it for).

 Instead, I'm trying to work up a little excitement about lighting a fire, cooking some favorite football-friendly foods — like Easy Artichoke Dip, Hot Dungeness Crab Dip, and Hot Bacon and Blue Cheese Spinach Dip — and tuning in on the radio. Sounds retro, doesn't it?
