When I was younger, I hated football. I refused to watch it on TV, and when I was taken to games with my family, I would bury my nose in a Babysitter’s Club book. The only time I would look up was when the cheerleaders were on the field.
This went on all through high school. Even my first year in college, I would go to the football games, but honestly I didn’t care. I really only cared about tailgating beforehand, and the nap I was going to take afterwords. But, when I transferred schools to the University of Nebraska, I loved the energy that surrounded the school on game days.
Growing up in Nebraska, I has always been a Husker fan, in the way that I was a Chiefs fan. I didn’t watch the games, or really care if the team won or lost, but I would wear their gear. But, as soon as I started going to Husker games, I started to get really into the games. I would even watch the away games on TV just so I could root for my team.
Out of college, I became a really big Chiefs fan as well. I love watching my team play on Sundays, especially this season! When Hubby and I first started dating, we would have football dates where we went to a local sports bar to watch our teams play. We even were on a fantasy football league together.
Last Christmas, my family all got together in Kansas City to watch the Chiefs play the Dolphins in the coldest Christmas Eve game I’ve ever been to. It was so much fun!
Now I can’t believe there was ever a time I hated football and refused to watch. Is there anything that you’ve completely changed your attitude on? Tell me about it!
