I love football. Nothing compares to the unmatched athleticism during local high school, Big Ten and NFL match-ups. Plus, memories near and far make each season. My favorites include:
Pumping fists and exchanging high-fives with Riff when the Detroit Lions make a touchdown. There have been many of these for two consecutive Sundays. Here’s to the Lions going 3-0 this afternoon! Are you with me?
Listening to Issa and Riff belt Louis Armstrong‘s, The Saints Go Marching In, at the start of Superbowl XLIV. Maybe we need to start memorizing Kid Rock‘s Born Free. It’s just a hunch. But, I think the Lions are contenders this year.
Spending sunny Saturdays at the Big House in Ann Arbor with my sister, Tina. Have you listened to Pop Evil’s In The Big House?
Taking road trips to rival territory to watch the Western Michigan University Bronco’s battle Eastern Michigan University and Central Michigan University. WMU spanked CMU last weekend, 44-14.
Tailgating prior to WMU and University of Michigan games.
Passing people up the bleachers — and sometimes cats — at WMU’s Waldo Stadium.
Drinking beer from shot glasses with my dad — when I was a wee lass — on football Sundays.
Mixing the Lions, family and turkey. That’s right. Every Thanksgiving, I watch the Lions battle it out for drumsticks while eating mixed nuts, drinking beer, partying with family and smelling turkey dinner. What else do you need?

Wonderful post. Can’t wait to read more!
Thanks for reading, Jay. I took a tour of your blog. Good luck on pursuing sports journalism. My college nods include U-M and WMU; and the Spartans when they’re not playing the first two.
Go Lions! A great football success story this year. And, thanks for putting up links to two of my football posts! Nice to have a Sports Chick Blogger friend who appreciates them.
@laughing mom – This is my absolute favorite time of year. Your tailgate post had me recalling my bleacher-creature days at WMU.
