So It Begins

This week has scared me a little bit already. Scared me, but also excited me at the same time. You see, the Spurs locked up their championship by completely whooping up on the Heat Sunday night, bringing the oh-so-long NBA season to a close. And while I do love the amazing talent of professional basketball and a summer filled with professional baseball and ballpark hotdogs, the tide is already changing for me at this point. There's only one sport in my life now so I'll need the others to kindly step aside.

Goodbye basketball and baseball. See you after the Super Bowl.

You see, football season starts for me tonight. I have my first after-hours event of the season and it will only pick up from here. One minute I'm jumping for joy at the promise of football season. I get caught up in the excitement of new guys on the team, a great schedule and just hoping that this is the year we get that playoff win we want so badly. But within seconds, those thoughts also get flooded with stress and anxiety over what the coming months will bring. The extra hours, the hectic schedules, the drunken fans I hold so dear deal with each week.

It's true what they say… You don't work in the sports world for the money or the glamour or the perks (Unless you're the actual athlete we're talking about). You work in sports for the love of the game. For the excitement of what each new season holds. So it begins now. If anyone needs me, I'll be watching the clock. Counting down until my guy's first game on August 7th. 49 days and counting.

PS- realized I could link up with Sarah today! ;)

  7. I'm sorry, how is August 7 only 49 days from now? WHERE HAS THIS YEAR GONE!? (P.S.- This totally means that I'm an old lady. This is how it sneaks up on you.)

  8. Football already? Man, hockey season just ended (which always messes me up when it goes into June) which means Keith is now finally paying attention to other sport - ie, world cup and baseball - but before we know it we'll be cheering on the Rams. Let's hope all teams do better this year!

  21. What do you do? Sorry, don't think I've read about that yet...I wish I was more into sports, alas, I am not, but will watch if my husband is watching.

  24. Wow...football season already?! Time is flying by. That's crazy. But come on...baseball season can not be brushed aside just yet. I haven't been to a game yet this season!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love that you've built your careers-football and design- around the things you love.

  26. Hooray for football - bring it on! Go Chiefs.
    Although right now it's good to be a Royals fan - relishing their success while it lasts. Between that and Zuski's assist in the world cup game it's actually good to be a Kansas City sports fan!

  27. I love that you care about football (and sports in general) so much! I just am not a sporty-type of person. I hate to admit it. HOWEVER, if I am in person at a game, that's a whole other story. I actually get excited about touchdowns and homeruns!

  28. Where is this summer going?! Our news has already been taken over by stories of Chicago Bears practices and all that stuff. I love football but I want to hold onto summer as long as possible :)

  29. Gosh this year is flying! Crazy. Enjoy the slowish times while they last, girl! Hope you get a win this season :)

  30. I can't believe football season is so close. I love the pictures - you're my team twin (Bengals, Reds, and Pacers). You're so right about working in sports for the love of the game...because it's certainly not about the money. I'm trying to relish the downtime right now because it'll be over before we know it!
