Yesterday was a bleak day for me. The season finale of "Walking Dead" had been the previous Sunday. So had the season finale of "Boardwalk Empire". My Sundays had lost meaning. Normally on Sunday I would begin to feel some pre-show jitters starting at about 1 pm. Then as 7 o'clock grew nearer my anticipation would also swell. I am told that this is the feeling some people experience waiting for the Super Bowl to begin.
