Football trumps all?  
Good: The local art museum offers art instruction and appreciation classes for adults. There's going to be an intro drawing class this fall that looks interesting. I haven't drawn in ages, and would appreciate some formal instruction, as I don't have any to speak of.

Bad: Art class runs on Sunday afternoons during football season. I would miss three Steeler games: Oct. 18 (BROWNS), Oct. 25 (VIKINGS), and Nov. 15 (at Bengals).

Extra Difficulty: Only have basic cable, and my VCR is broken.

I would be all gung-ho for signing up if it weren't for the missing football aspect. I know that's retarded- and, I know, the fucking Brownies and Bungles- but still. I can catch the highlight reels, but it's not the same. I adore early afternoon football games. I'm also perversely curious to see how many times Woodley and Harrison sack Brittfar, and how many INTs the League's best D will force out of that giant sack of walking hubris.

Blaarg. Still haven't decided yet. Maybe I should first ask around about whether these classes are worth going to in the first place.

Yer actually considering taking a class that will screw up the watching of the Stillers killing those two 'tard teams from Ohio?

I would argue that they're the easiest games to miss, as [1] we play both teams twice a year and [2] we already know the outcomes. There's also, sadly, no more occasion to marvel at Romeo Crennel's jaw-droppingly inept clock management.

All that said, I still don't want to miss them.

I got all psyched about going to this art class, and then I found out what dates it ran, and I was very sad.

Well see what others think of the class and then squander a perfectly entertaining afternoon see whether it is worth it or not?

Yeah, that's what I'll try to do!

I imagine this whole effort will prove fruitless. The class will probably be canceled due to low enrollment...!
