It’s time for a little back story. It won’t take long trust me.
Ever since I was a teenager I loved watching football. It all started because of the players uniforms. Yeah, I know, I know. I’m just being honest here. But I grew into a true fan of the sport. I was never fanatical about it or anything but I did enjoy watching it. As a teenager I bounced around from team to team not really being loyal to just one until I watched the New England Patriots play many many years ago. And then a light bulb came on. “Hey!” I said to myself. “You’re from New England.” And thus my dedication to a team was born.
Fast forward to when I met my hubby. He didn’t watch football or any sport for that matter. He’d much rather be doing something else and so football for me was put on the back burner and I was fine with that.
Fast forward 17 or so years to now. The kids and I REALLY enjoyed watching the Summer Olympics. So much so that it gave me the hankerin’ for some sport watching. And wouldn’t you know, football season was just around the corner.
Coincidentally I happen to have some birthday money that my Mom gave me that I hadn’t done anything with because I never know what to buy. I always try to buy something frivolous with it but I usually end up spending it on something practical. But I had a crazy idea for this money. I ran it by my hubby and he was totally fine with my idea and so with my birthday money, I bought this.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I bought me an official Patriots jersey. This year I’m gonna watch me some Patriots football. But since we don’t have cable or anything I’m sure I won’t be catching all their games but I’ll enjoy the ones I do get to watch………while wearing my jersey!!! Woot! Woot! Yes, I feel cool. Yes, I’m a goober. Yes, you wasted about 2.5 minutes of your life reading this post.
My hubby is totally fine with it. Plus I promised him some yummy football watching goodies!
Let me ask you this. Do you watch football and if so who’s YOUR favorite team?
Love and Hugs,
