It’s Football Monday!
Instead of talking about C and the Arena Football League this week, I thought I’d talk about the NFL!
As you know I love Football. The NFL was my first love, but obviously now that I’ve been introduced to Arena Football I love that just as much (if not more in some ways). I have never been a big fan of college football, but I have started to watch more lately. It’s just too hard for me to keep track of all of those teams!
I began my love for football by watching Troy Polamalu for the Steelers. He is the one that is known for all the hair and is always in Head & Shoulders commercials. Ring any bells? I started watching him and before I knew it I had adopted the whole Steelers team. Living in Arizona though, it was tough to ever see Steelers games. Eventually, I because a Cardinals fan. Yes, I know they aren’t known for being very good, but I still love my hometown team!
I am the girl that plays fantasy football. Last year I was in a league with all men and I got second place. How’s that for awesome?! I won $75 too, which I used for my ticket into Disneyland a few months later. That’s what everyone does with their fantasy football winnings right?
I also play in a confidence pool which is a lot of fun. Basically you decided which of the two teams you think is going to win each game and then you order all of the games by how confident you are you have picked the correct winner. It sounds confusing, but I promise it’s not. It really makes you interested in the outcome of all of the games, which I like. So far this year I have gotten 13th and 6th place for the week (out of 50 players). My time is coming, I can feel it!
C and I have a bucket list to go to every NFL stadium to see a game. It was once just my goal, but since I met him he has adopted it and called it “our” bucket list. I love it! I had seen a few other games (Pittsburgh and New Orleans) but I am willing to start over with him. Plus, he actually PLAYED in a bunch of NFL games, so obviously he has been to a lot of stadiums. So far together we only have seen a game at 2 of the 31 stadiums (there are 32 teams but New York and New Jersey share a stadium) but we have plans to see a couple more very soon!
