While northerners take their fall football cues from the slight turning and turning and falling of tree leaves, along with a slight chill in the air; we Floridians living in Fort Myers and Estero have our own special telltale hints that let us know it's time for kickoff.

That might not be fair (especially when you’re in your grungiest sweats and run into an acquaintance at the grocery store), but that’s how it is.
