Are you ready for some football?

August 02, 2013

When I saw Erin at Love. Fun, and Football was hosting a Football Friday linkup I was instantly excited about the idea. I am a girl who loves me some football. My dad was blessed with two girls and no sons, so in his words he tried to get his daughters into sports. It was a no-go for my older sister who had no idea the Carolina Panthers play two hours away from her. So as the youngest child my dad took me under his wing and passed down his love of football. Thank you dad.

Coming from the south (depending who you ask Florida may or may not be considered part of the south) college football is king. I have loved Florida State football since I was in middle school and would tell my dad how I was going to go to FSU one day. Basically I bleed garnet and gold.

      Back when I was a teacher this hung on the back wall of my classroom. Every year I always had Gator parents and students complain about it. Oh well. Go Noles!

              Like any good sports fan I have a collection of FSU shirts, this is one of my favorite ones. Apologies for the lack of makeup.

Some interesting FSU related facts about me:

1. I change my ringtone to the Florida State fight song during football season. What can I say, I'm dorky about my team.

2. The Seminoles were undefeated all season and won the national championship my freshman year in Tallahassee. Dancing and cheering on Tennessee street on that January night is a memory I will cherish forever. The hangover the next day, which happened to be the first day of spring classes, completely worth it.

3. I met the famous Bobby Bowden my sophomore year. At the time I was working for the on campus club, Club Down Under, where he sometimes filmed his weekly show during football season. I happened to be working the night of his birthday show in which the staff had brought him a birthday cake. Not only did I get to meet Mr. Bowden, but he gave us a piece of his birthday cake.

How about you? Are you a college or NFL fan?
