Then, just yesterday, Thursday, August 13th, Preseason started!
For those who don’t know I’m pretty much a football junkie. Only professional football, though. I’m very weird when it comes to college football. And, I mean weird as in I don’t watch it or follow it. Sure, I’ll go to a Sooner game if asked to go or given tickets, but I’d much rather go pro any day.
Yes, I know, weird. But, I don’t care.
Back to my point, it never fails, every year about mid January, the sadness starts in as the end of the season approaches. While I love watching the Superbowl, it’s also the means to the end of my relaxing Sunday ritual of yelling at the TV, scaring the dog, and confusing my kids.
Yes, the dreaded off-season…otherwise known as the dark time in my household.
I have a long history with football. I remember when I was younger and before I found the joy in watching the games, I always hated Sundays. Then when I was about 12 years old, my dad took me to a 49er game at Candlestick Stadium, and after that, I was hooked.
Fast forward several years, when I started working for the family business. My dad and his friends had a pool every year and certainly, I wanted to join. Yep, one little 20 something year old girl against a bunch of men. I remember that they all laughed when I joined.
Of course, they didn’t laugh after I kicked their butts that year, the next year, and the year after that, but I certainly did.
Anyway, as you can bet, I’m over the moon now that we have football sounds in the living room again!! CHEERS to the upcoming 2015-2016 season!! And, to my team, the Baltimore Ravens….LET’S KICK SOME BUTT THIS YEAR!!
