Touchdowns and Tackles: Surviving Football Season with Humor

Football season is upon us once again, and there’s an undeniable magic in the air. The crisp fall weather, the sound of roaring crowds, and the anticipation of the next big play make this time of year truly special for football enthusiasts.  Let’s explore some elements that make football season fun.


1. The Couch Potato Chronicles

We all know that one friend who transforms into a couch potato the moment football season kicks off. They’ve got the best seat in the house, surrounded by a mountain of snacks and a remote control that might as well be an extension of their arm. Pro tip: If you need to talk to them during a game, wait for a commercial break – you’ll have their undivided attention.


2. Game Face Fashion Fails

Let’s talk about the fashion choices people make on game day. Some folks go all out, dressing head to toe in their team’s gear, while others wear an outfit that can only be described as “stale nacho cheese chic.” And let’s not forget the die-hard fans who paint their faces with team colors, only to realize that it’s not washable paint. Good luck explaining those Monday morning meetings!


3. The Monday Morning Quarterback

Ah, the Monday Morning Quarterback – the armchair expert who could have coached the team to victory from the comfort of their living room. They’ve got an opinion on every play and can’t resist sharing their “insights” with everyone within earshot. Bonus points if they’ve never played football in their life.


4. The Penalty Flag Prankster

Raise your hand if you’ve ever witnessed someone in your living room throw a penalty flag pillow at the TV after a controversial call. It’s like their own mini-replay challenge, complete with dramatic flair and an audience of bewildered onlookers. Just remember to check for breakables nearby!


5. The Tailgate Tales

Tailgating is a sport of its own, filled with epic culinary creations and elaborate setups. If you’re not grilling a 12-foot bratwurst or deep-frying something that shouldn’t be deep-fried, are you even tailgating? Remember, it’s not a competition, but if it were, we’d probably win.

In conclusion, football season is a fun journey filled with unforgettable moments and endless laughs. So, whether you’re a die-hard fan, a casual observer, or just here for the snacks, embrace the humor and enjoy the wild ride of touchdowns and tackles. And remember, it’s not whether you win or lose; it’s how many snacks you consume along the way that truly counts.


Since I went to Bryant University (the New England Patriots’ summer camp), you can guess who my team is.  For college football, I am a Huskers fan.  Don’t ask me why. It runs in the family. LOL.
