So, You Want to be a Fan?

Friday Football should start with something fun, right?

What could be more fun than starting with fashion – or the lack thereof when talking about football.

Honestly, half of the game is dressing the part.

Come game day, whether you’re AT the game or sitting at home watching, showing your support is a huge part of the football culture as we know it today.

People paint their bodies and stand out there shirtless in frigid weather…I’m not sure I understand that one since I keep my clothes on, but it’s that passion for the game, the players, the fun that makes the sport what it is.

Those team colors are what set you apart in a stadium full of 60,000 people.

And besides, the more fun you have getting ready for the games, the more games you’ll watch.

And the more games you watch, the more you learn.

The more you learn, the more you want to watch. It becomes fun.

And it sometimes become a bit of an obsession  :)

So, throw on that tshirt, jersey, purse, socks, sweatpants, hats, gloves, scarves, beads….I’ve got ‘em all.

Pick your team – Show your pride.

I just wish I had a college team to root for. I went to Indiana University and…um….we were not a football school. Like, they stink!

  8. I spy a hokie! I’m so out of touch with college football these days, but it was my life back when I was at Boston College. Plus I was on the dance team so I watched every. minute. of every. game. Some better than others. In fact, such others usually included teams like VTech! Booooo!

  9. I don’t watch much football, but it’s been drilled into me to root for Michigan :)

  12. I only really watch football when the boyfriend is over so I don’t know much about college football. My NFL team is Eagles!
