It's Football Season!

I love fall.  Fall means football and pumpkin and sweaters and feeling the crispness in the air.  Our family is psyched for football to start this weekend.  Our high school started play last weekend, but I'm talking about college and professional football now.

My nephew is Offensive Coordinator at Bemidji State and their team kicks off their season on Friday night.  Thankfully, we can watch them through live internet coverage.  My family tends to get a little annoyed while I am watching them play and yelling and shouting at the computer.  It is the one team I really watch and root for.  My nephew calls me their "Super Fan".

Our other favorite college team is, of course, the Iowa Hawkeyes!  It is tough to get to a game, but we sure like watching them on TV.

Finally, the kids and Pat really like watching their favorite NFL teams and players.  The favorite in our house is the Minnesota Vikings.  Pat has been a fan ever since his aunt gave him Vikings pajamas as a kid.  A few years ago, Pat and I took the boys to a Vikings vs Packers game in the dome.   What a fun time that was!

Even though the Vikings are our favorite, Bennett still likes to cheer for the Steelers.
We also like to watch all our local Hawkeye players that have made it big. 
Chad Greenway, Vikings
Tyler Sash, Giants
Shonn Greene, Jets
Adrian Clayborn, Buccaneers
Nate Kaeding, Chargers
Ricky Stanzi, Chiefs
Tony Moeaki, Chiefs
Amari Spievey, Lions
Riley Reiff, Lions
Julian Vandervelde, Eagles
Marvin McNutt, Eagles
Dallas Clark, Buccaneers
Bob Sanders, Chargers
The most fun will come from cheering on our own little football player. 
Bennett will be playing for the 6th grade team. 
We can't wait to cheer him and his teammates on to VICTORY starting in mid-September!
So, let's get ready for some FOOTBALL!!!!
