It’s that time of year again. I’ve seen the signs coming for weeks from the stores changing inventory to the colors exploding outside. The weather channel has confirmed everything for me, and I know it’s true.
Football season is here.
This time of year is bittersweet for me, for I have an ongoing love affair with crisp air and bright lights. A love of men in tights and padding (I mean come on who wouldn’t??) and nachos with cheese. Alas it also reminds me that I’ve never been tail-gating or attended a college game. It reminds me that while my college was truly amazing academically speaking in the area that holds my heart it was…well a complete failure.
All women’s colleges have that con, the lack of men and tights and bright lights. I know some of my fellow alumn’s read this little piece of the internet and gosh y’all – I love being a Purple Knight. But…sweat and leather and the roar of a crowd well those are darn hard to replace.
I think if I could I’d go to a game at UGA (the school I sometimes wish I went too) and then I’d attend a game at FSU because I grew up supporting that team. Then I’d hightail it to Tennessee and attend a Vol’s game to support my hubby. Of course with all this traveling and football game attending I don’t see how I could possibly take the time to work so gee darn I’ll be on vacation for six months. In my dreams!!
Do you love football? What team do you support?
