Duty called me from the couch where I was watching a college football game, one of my favorite pastimes. We were planning to leave on a trip to New York early the next week so our lawn had to be raked and mowed on Saturday, college football's game day.
One of the teams in the game I had started watching was a top contender for the national championship, increasing the temptation to leave the leaves to themselves. After all, this game might determine which team would ultimately be crowned number one.
