Are you ready for some FOOTBALL?!?! I am!!! Seriously, I love me some football – college, NFL, flag…you name it, I love it.
Each year, Chad’s family puts on this NFL pool where you have to pick against the spread each week and the winner of each week gets about $100 cash money. Since we started dating, I’ve won at least once a season. Chad has not won at all. This upsets him, but also speaks highly of my football knowledge, because he knows A LOT about all of the teams and players. When I don’t know who to pick, I just choose the hotter quarterback, prettier colors or better shopping city :)
Last night, Chad and I kicked off the season in style. We ate the leftover chili from the failed date night and both managed to pick the Saints to cover the 5.5 point spread against the Vikings. It’s always good when we’re cheering for the same team – there are less death threats that way :) Also, Chad is doing a fantasy football team this year, so he had reason to cheer for the Saints as a team, yet some of the Vikings players – kind of a win/win for him. Sadly, the Saints only won by 5 points, so we lost the first game of our NFL family pool this year (I blame that jerk kicker Hartley, a Sooner. Seriously, I bet he did it on purpose just to make me lose.) Regardless, we had a lot of fun and are looking forward to a great season ahead!
