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!
