Experience 8 - Watching an Entire Football Game

I am an American, born to American parents. Football is a huge part of American life. I remember being a little girl and waiting for football games to end on Thanksgiving day so my brother, dad and I could go on our traditional walk through the trails behind our home in Arizona.  But guess what? I had never seen an entire game before yesterday. I've seen parts of games, but I only turn on the Super Bowl for the commercials. Yes, I am one of those people!

Sports do not hold my attention, so this was truly an accomplishment! :) No, really. It was. I watched it by myself! I had control of the remote and chose to watch it anyway.  I won't lie. Initially I turned it on to keep my hubby updated on the Packers/Bears game (GO, PACK, GO!) since he was not in front of a TV. But I actually enjoyed it and understood a majority of it, although the BEST part was B.J. Raji's dance when he got a touchdown. He shaked his 337 pound body as a celebratory dance. It was hilarious!

  2. I just started watching football this season with my boyfriend and am thrilled to know where the ball is now...most of the time ;)

    I don't have a favorite team so my loyalties shift every weekend and I still cheer the other team when they do something amazing....so there is a learning curve there for sure!

    Anyway congrats on winning the cereal contest on my blog! If you can forward me your mailing info to silverfeatherauctions@gmail I'll have them mail out your box asap. It'll probably get there mid-next week.

    Congrats again :)

  4. I did watch it! (well most of it) I missed Christina Aguilera's flub and a bit of the first half, but watched the rest. I think I watched more of it than my hubby! haha It's really starting to grow on me. Thanks for stopping by!!
