My weekend was so fun I made it last an extra day! Just kidding... don't I wish!? I was definitely back in my office yesterday, recovering from a sports-filled weekend. Jared and I went to our first (and likely only) baseball game of the year with my brother/sister-in-law Friday night. We knew the night would be fun, because our foursome always has a good time together so we were pumped to meet up downtown after work. Ridiculous amounts of food and amazing free seats? What could go wrong?
The Reds could play really bad... that's what! We still had a great time- and luckily those dark clouds didn't open up either, but goodness our team played terrible. Add in the Ohio State Buckeyes loss on Saturday night and I was starting to get nervous about the Bengals vs. Ravens game on Sunday!
But I had no reason to... my guys looked great and we started off the season WINNING in Baltimore, which is a huge deal. I stuffed myself silly with too much junk food Sunday which was fun while it lasted. And then I just felt like a blob. A very large, but happy blob. Note to self- football season does NOT mean I can eat whatever I want! I can make it for others, but it doesn't mean I have to eat it!
It was fun having a group of friends and family over for the first official Bengals game. Nothing better than surrounding yourself with fellow die-hard fans who scream at the TV just as loud as you, who go along with weird superstitions and don't ask questions and who are happy to toss the victory football in your subdivision after the game. THIS is what fall is all about :)
The team now has two home games in a row and then the Bye week (already!!) so we won't be hosting another get together until next month. That's okay with me though. As fun as they are, I'm exhausted after a big shin-dig. Anyone else party too hard for their football-filled weekend? How about those fantasy teams? Jared beat me in week one, but that's no surprise ;) Cheers to football being BACK!
