For many of you, Saturday afternoon began with a cold, depressing reminder after pressing “guide” on your remote that there will be absolutely no football had today, save for the Army-Navy game.
College hoops? Sure. Michigan-Arizona kicked things off at noon, but that just served as a stark reminder that all we have left are 106 bowl games, and we have to wait for those. So for now, right here, this football-shaped summer sausage from the Vermont Country Store — complete with lacing and stitching — is the only football you’ll be getting.
The thing weighs 17 oz., so if you place an order for one, you could probably get a fun game of catch going with your young son or nephew until he inevitably dips it in mustard and takes a heaping bite out of it.
