This weekend marks the start of most high school and college football in the country - the beginning of a seasonal religion in the South. Pro ball starts next week. After spending four years in the band, countless hours watching college ball on TV and a couple nights in the stands at a Titans game I've learned a thing or two about football. I know I enjoy watching the games (and the way those quarterback's butts look in those tight pants). And I know I can't tell holding from offsides - but I can spot unsportsmanlike conduct.
DH will be taking both girls to the first home game of the season for our local high school tomorrow night. It's a tradition he started with Sweet Pea several years ago. They're all very excited about going. Me? I'm staying home. It's till 90 frickin degrees in the shade down here and I'm a firm believer that if I'm sweating I'd best be losing inches from my waist.
My parents, sister, brother-in-law and youngest brother will all be at the Auburn game on Saturday since they hold season tickets (WAR EAGLE!). This weekend begins a proud family tradition of scheduling absolutely everything around when we play Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee and Florida. The rest of the games don't matter unless we lose.
Who are you rooting for this year?
