10 Things I Love About Football (American Football)

10 Things I Love About Football (American Football)

This was a prompt from the writer’s workshop a few weeks ago and because I am a huge football fan I knew I wanted to write about it. Here are ten things that I love about football.

10- Men in tight pants . . . Need I say more?!?!

9- Another thing that I love about football is the fact that I can just have it on in the background and not have to worry about missing something if I am blogging or what not during a game.

8- I love that most of the games are on the weekends so that I don’t have to miss most of them because of work and not wanting to stay up all night.

7- I love watching when my team comes back at the end of the game to win after they have been down the entire game.

6- On Friday one of my teams ended up winning the game in double overtime so you are on the end of your seat watching and hoping that you will pull out a win.

5- I love that you can meet total strangers and feel like you have so much in common with them because you both like the same team or your teams are playing each other so you can trash talk and just have fun.

4-It makes me happy to watch. There isn’t much more I can say other than watching football makes me happy.

3- I love being able to follow players as they get traded and see how better they get when they go to a different team with a new dynamic.

2- I love watching players that I started following in college football moving to the NFL and seeing how the have grown up and seen how good they have become when they do get to the NFL.

1- The number one thing that I love about footballs is the look on people’s face’s when I talk to them for the first time about football. They are always so shocked that I know what I am talking about and that always makes me smile.

Those are ten things that I love about football. I am sure there are many more things that I will think of once I hit publish so maybe one day I will come back and do an updated one. The one thing that I don’t like about football is how five minutes can take a half hour to get through.

What is one thing you love about football?

What To Do?

What To DoIt is fall in Utah which means it will soon be snowing.  I saw a prompt that asked what I did on a dark and stormy day and I figured it would be a good topic to write about because that type of weather will soon be taking over in Utah.  There aren’t a ton of things that I do when it is storming out but a few things that I really do enjoy doing.

The first thing that came to mind when I saw this prompt was I love to watch football when it is stormy and nasty out.  I don’t think there are many things better than curling up and watching a good football game when it is cold and nasty out.  On with that theme I also love to just put on a good movie or even watch reruns of my favorite shows curled up in bed.  I love not having to go out and being able to watch it storm and be warm and comfortable in my house watching TV.

The only other thing that I really love doing when it is storming is to get whatever book I am reading and find a warm spot to sit and finish the book.  I love being able to read books when it is gross outside because I can read about warm places and forget for a while that it is snowing and freezing outside for a little while.  I also have started to love listening to audiobooks because there are days where my head hurts so bad that I can’t read but being able to listen to an audiobook is great for passing the time as well.

Those are a few things that I love to do when it is stormy and gross out.  What do you like to do when it is storming outside?

  • Birth Mom-I placed my daughter for adoption when I was 20.
  • Blogger
  • Daughter
  • Mom to two crazy cats
  • Book lover
  • Introvert
  • Person who truly loves to be alone
  • Huge football fan-I will watch pretty much any game but I love the University of Utah & the Baltimore Ravens.
  • Suffer of an invisible illness-Multiple Sclerosis

Those are just the few things that came first to me.  I know I could go on and on with a list but no one has time to read that.

How would you answer the sentence?

  4. I loving being able to watch players I have watched since they were in college make in the NFL.

Nails Of The Month ~ University Of Utah Football Nails

Nails

I really love my nails this month because they are something I have never done before and they are also fun now that it is football season for me.  This time  I decided to do University of Utah inspired nails because that is my favorite college team and strange enough I have never done anything like them before.  Here are pictures of what they look like:

I have to say my favorite thing about these nails are the footballs.  I have never seen anything like them before.  I am pretty sure I am going to do something for the Ravens this winter so when I do I will make sure I blog about them.

What do you think? Do you have any ideas for next time?
