The Routine Begins Again

*Last year, I posted a little rundown of how I am when I watch football and since the college season has officially started, with pro to follow next week, I thought I'd post it again. :)

When I Watch Football

1.  I don't talk, unless it's football related. I'm completely IN the game. I don't mind random, SHORT little exchanges off the topic of football, but don't expect long conversations--ain't gonna happen. This is especially true when my team is on the field...I'm there to support my team, so kindly shut it.

2.  Sometimes, I will coach from the couch...and I don't suck at it, either...of course, I've had some darn good "coaches"  (my mama, daddy, and papaw). 

3.  I occasionally swear.  Because I don't make it a habit, people usually laugh, even though I'm soooo not joking...I'm in the zone, y'all.

4.  From time to time, I will unleash on the refs.  Who hasn't, right? Those little zebras get on my last nerve sometimes.

5.  I can cheer with the best of them...expect cheering, clapping, etc. I'm not a sit-there-look-pretty female football fan.

6.  If you are not a fan of my team, it's all good--I don't have a problem with healthy competition...just respect that we are all football fans here.  IF you decide to take a walk down poor loser/snarky a** road, I will, in an extremely polite, swear-free manner, verbally go toe-to-toe with you...and I will win (playing around here)--Done the sparring thing before...with football players that were waaaaaaay bigger than me (this is true and it was a blast--we had a great time!). Sparring can actually be pretty fun. (Again, I'm playing around here, just in case you didn't realize...grrr...just havin' fun).

7.  When the outcome of a game comes down to the last minute or so, I will pace.  Don't stop me; it is something I must do. I must pace.

8.  If my team loses, I need a mourning period...unless they play horrible, pathetic football, in which case, I will rant.  If my team wins, I will revel in victory, but not to the point of being obnoxious. 

I love this game. I love my team. This is me. If you don't like it...I'll meet you on the football field.  Meow...

...and a little Grr.

***I hope everyone has a wonderful Labor Day weekend! I'll just be cheering on my teams and rooting for Dale to kick some fender in Atlanta.


  1. LoL! You and my Hubby are a lot alike in the football fan department :-)

  2. Haha, you sound like my ex-girlfriend. She did almost all the things you do, except that she sometimes turned to TV off if she got too wound up.

  3. My sports are baseball and basketball. Never really got into football.

  4. chocolateangel: :) LOL--It's usually a surprise to men that I take it every bit as seriously as they do.

    Jay: LOL--I've been known to hit mute under extreme circumstances, particularly if the announcers are annoying me or making more nervous than I already am.

    Eva: Love baseball and basketball, too. I just hope we have an NBA season--my mom's okay if they don't because the Mavs championship win will just carry over and they can remain the defending champions. lol She's got a point! lol

  5. I don't watch football anymore. When I did, it was the Bears! But I would get so worked up and anxious, I stopped. My sisters, on the other hand, are beyond nuts when they watch it--screaming, shouting, jumping up and down. My blood pressure is much better now :)

  6. Lol are you talking about American football or "soccer"? It's so confusing sometimes lol

  7. Um...who needs football when hockey starts soon!? (Please don't hit me!) I am not a fan of football but I understand being a fan. I also wanted to let you know that I am like 3 episodes behind on True Blood...Ugh...and have to catch up this that is why I haven't commented on your Tuesday posts. I'm not ignoring them or you...I just don't want to spoil the show. :)

  8. Ok, I need a football buddy like you.

    The swear-free is optional, however.

    With that said, GO PANTHERS!

  9. ms. caboo: Oh, I'd be scared to know what my BP is during a game. I imagine it's off the charts. lol

    Hazel: lol-American Football. My team is the Dallas Cowboys. :)

    Jewels: I like hockey, too, so no worries there! lol I thought maybe you might be catching up on episodes--I still miss your comments, though...especially on Alcide. lol I imagine you will have the same reaction to Debbie's antics as I did. LOL--Likewise! Not many people get the seriousness of being a fan! lol

    And...GO COWBOYS!!!!!!!!!!!
