One of the best things about fall is football season. It’s fun sitting in the stands in the crisp autumn air on Friday nights rooting for your favorite high school team. The band, the cheerleaders, the student section, and families of the players wearing school colors and cheering for their team add to the excitement. All three of my nephews played high school football and it was a thrill to watch them play.
College game day on Saturdays can keep you glued to the tv all day. Predicting the college rankings and watching them change each week is all part of the action. I grew up in Lubbock, Texas and my family would march with the band to Red Raider Stadium and watch Texas Tech take the field.
Watching the Cowboys on Sundays is fun again! I’ve been a loyal fan since the 1970s, so I’ve witnessed the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. Tailgating before a Thanksgiving game with my whole family to celebrate my parents 50th anniversary is a cherished memory.
If you’re like me and just can’t get enough of football, we have lots of tv shows and movies inspired by the game.
