What this time of year means.

I know the cooler weather is something I'm welcoming. But the thing I'm hearing more and more of about this time of year is the sports. Football (American)! College has already started, and professional football starts officially this Thursday. I have seen several mylotters here post about watching their teams this preseason. It's pretty funny to see how excited some people get about this time of year (admittedly, I like it too). I like baseball as well, and the World Series starts next month, but for the most part it's all been football. Anyone not like sports, but their significant other is crazy about it? I imagine that would have to be frustrating. What's your team? Who is your favorite player? And how many of you have not seen one single minute of an American football game?

My favorite team is the Packers and I watched every preseason game. We won three of four. Only losing to the Broncos. My favorite player is Aaron Rodgers. He's one of the best quarterbacks the Pack has had. Bart Starr was my favorite through high school. Brett Favre was okay, but Aaron is better than he was.

I am in Colorado, so my teams are he Rockies and the Broncos! I watch baseball and football, too, but not consistently, at least unless one of my teams is on a winning streak . My husband used to watch football all the time and I kind of got tired of spending every Thanksgiving afternoon like that.

I can get into most games, but don´t usually Ambie, and I can feed off others excitement lol There are never any superbowl parties in my place, though I wish there were at times. I am usually a fan of whatever state I am living in at the time..so right now Broncos. When I lived NE it was Patriots, when in KS, the Chiefs And my hometown team for Baseball is the Cards.
I used to like playing sports when I was in high school and college (softball, basketball, swimming), but I've never really liked watching other people play sports, either in person or on television, with the exception of basketball. My youngest son is in marching band, so I've had to go to all of the home football games for the past several years, and it is SO BORING! But I go to support my son (plays the tuba/souzaphone) and to watch the marching band do it's special number during halftime.
