Time for football, is your latte ready?

Football players do not wear "man capri pants." And, if the skintight "not capri pants" happen to be white, those certainly are not "panty lines" you see encircling the players' backsides. Or so I recently was told by my football fanatic husband, who tried - in vain - to teach me the rules of the game.

Candidates' antics likely scared voters
