Finally! It’s about time.
It feels like I’ve been waiting for this moment for a really long time, but it’s finally here. The start of a new football season.
I don’t know what it is about football that makes me love it so much. Is it watching the quarterback get sacked? Or is it the interceptions and fumbles that make me hold my breath until the referees break up the pile. Maybe it’s the ridiculous catch made by the wide receiver that gets my blood running? Or it could even be the punt return that leads to a touchdown. Regardless of the reason, I love it and I’ve been dying to see some real football in action.
I love this moment. The moment before the season starts. The moment where everyone sits at 0-0.* The moment filled with hope and expectations. A new season, a fresh start, a clean slate. It’s a chance for redemption; a chance for missed opportunities. Full of endless possibilities.
So here’s to a new season.
Calling all football fans. Let me here it! Who are you rooting for and what games are you looking forward to watching this weekend?
Personally, I’m a native Houstonian, born and raised in Houston so of course I’m rooting for the TEXANS.
*Okay, so not everyone is at 0-0. Vikings played at New Orleans on Thursday to kick off the season, but for the purposes of this post, just bear with me and pretend everyone is at 0-0. 🙂
