I’ll be the first to admit. I’ve never really known the first thing about football. I’ve always just kind of mindlessly watched and cheered when everyone else is cheering. I may have been to a Super Bowl party or two just for the good food and good company. And I’ve also jumped the fence and went from being a Vikings fan to a Packers fan after Cory and I started dating. Phew, I feel so much better now after those confessions! It’s like a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders! I love the excitement and the feeling of togetherness that football brings and I love that it helps bring families closer together, as well.
Just a couple of weekends ago, Cory and I snuggled up on the couch to watch the Packers game. I was feeling motivated and a little curious, so I decided to start asking some more questions. Cory was as eager to teach as I was to learn and was very patient with me, considering how silly some of the questions I was asking may have sounded to him.
But he didn’t get mad or frustrated, he just answered question after question. He even said, “Isn’t this nice, babe? We’re sitting up and watching football together!” I think we’ll do that even more this football season!
And we may even be planning a trip to Lambeau Field and meeting my best friend and her husband there! I’ve never been to a professional football game before, so this will definitely be an exciting trip. We’ll be going right in the heart of winter, too, so we’ll get the full experience of freezing our butts off, too! Hot cocoa, please! And thanks to Cory and NFL.com, I’ll be knowledgeable and stylish!
I may never understand why they throw all those yellow flags out (annoying!) and I may never understand 100% of the game, but I’m happy to report that I’m learning slowly but surely and falling even more in love with football the more that I learn!
