Football Friday {Link-Up!}


Today might be my most favorite day of the blogging year so far. I get to talk about football - not like I don't do that weekly anyway- but I get to read everyone else's posts on the topic too! Today it doesn't matter who you root for, we are all fans. :) If you've been to my blog even one time, it's pretty obvious I'm a Cincinnati Bengals fan through and through. But just in case you're new here, I figured I would clarify. While I love watching college football, the NFL has always been #1 in my heart.

Something I'm pretty excited about this year is the potential to GO to a home game as a fan since I'll no longer be working game days. The last time Jared and I got to see a game in Cincinnati together was in 2008! A very, cold December game during a season the Bengals only won 4 games. Ouch!

We've been able to get away to a couple of away games over the past few years though and those are still some of my favorite memories with Jared. I've been to games in Cleveland, Indianapolis and Nashville... hoping to keep crossing stadiums off my list! It's fun to be an away fan, too.

We are so crazy about the Bengals that we got engaged on the field and also announced our pregnancy on the field! I wanted to bring T home from the hospital in a Bengals outfit but they were SO big on him it was pointless to try to put it on him. He's all set for this season though and truly, my heart might explode when I get to put a little jersey on him for the first time.

This season will be so different for me and I truly am excited about sitting on my couch with my little family every Sunday afternoon (and night.. and Monday night... And Thursday night! ;)) Maybe football isn't your thing but it's certainly ours. All of my favorite times seem to revolve around either football or a holiday- sometimes both! I love having a house full of people cheering on our favorite team and stuffing ourselves with chips and dip. My favorite cookbook for this time of year is even Bengals-themed!

Family, friends, loads of food and football- what else could a girl need?!
Anyone remember this Super Bowl commercial from last year??

I hope you'll link-up your football related post below and join in the fun. I just ask that you use please good link-up etiquette and link back to my blog/post :) Be sure to hop around and meet some other football lovin' bloggers! As always- WHODEY!

  3. Yay for football! Congrats on the preseason win against the Lions! This will be my 2nd year living without a TV but I'm loving that I now work at a bar where I've been able to watch a lot of the games while working.

  8. Hooray for getting to experience home games like a fan again! When Chris was in the band at school we had so much fun at the games, but it was nice once he was out to be able to relax and enjoy games with our other friends. I can't wait to see how cute T looks in his Bengals jersey!

  13. I love your love of football and family! This season will definitely be different for you guys, but I'm guessing it might be your favorite season ever getting to introduce your little man to all things football. I am already planning a delicious game day menu to enjoy from now through January :) Thanks for hosting!!
