I have always loved to watch football.
When I was a youngster and had a TV in my room, I would hole up on Sundays and cheer on the Broncos and the Redskins…my favorite teams. How I selected them, I have no idea (except for the Broncos because I lived in Colorado until I was nine years old).
Growing up in Alabama, you have to choose sides quickly, or if you’re born in Alabama, the choice is made for you according to your parental units’ leanings. Because I moved to Alabama when I was nine, I got to choose for myself.
I chose wisely.
It wasn’t long before I got sucked into the Iron Bowl rivalry that was talked about for weeks at school.
This is how I started watching college football.
The Mr. is a hardcore college football fan, and when we got married, there was the unspoken (and sometimes spoken) expectation that I would spend Saturdays glued to the TV, cheering on SEC teams…except for the OTHER school in Alabama, as well.
So I do…quite willingly…for I do love competition and respect athleticism.
With this being the first Saturday of college football this season, I thought I would celebrate accordingly…
