It's NFL Time, Baby!!



The crispy air...
The leaves starting to change colors...
The thought in the back of our minds that we have to dig out the cooler weather clothing...
All indicative of Football Season!!!

Nothing reminds me of Fall more than football (well, maybe raking leaves, which I haven't had to do yet, thank goodness).  But it's been so busy with back-to-school that I almost forgot about it.  If you're in a Fantasy Football League online, your deadline to draft is probably very, very soon (mine is 3 hours, 13 minutes, and 8 seconds from now).  Don't forget to get your team in there, or you'll miss out on the whole season.

For those of you who don't play online, you've already had your drafting parties (hubby went to 3, lol). Good luck to everyone (who is not playing against me or my husband).  <-- Kidding...sort of (*cough* *cough*).

Tonight's kickoff game is going to be good with NFC East rivalry at it's best.  The Dallas Cowboys are hoping to deflate the Super Bowl sails of Eli Manning and the New York Giants, but with Tight End Jason Witten listed as 'doubtful,' QB Tony Romo is going to have a run for his money.



If you don't have time to go sit in front of the television for kick-off, remember you can have the game streaming live to your computer.

And, for anyone who cares (no groaning here please, there are some Detroit Lions fans), here is the schedule for the Detroit Lions.  If you live close by, or will be attending a home game this year at Ford Field, you can get your tickets online here.  Despite the legal troubles some of the players have been getting into this year, it looks to be a promising season (and anyone who follows football knows that hasn't been said about the Lions for a good long while).

That being said, yes, I know HW, Jr., got fired and won't be shouting it out anymore, but I'm going to do it anyway...

ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL??

  1. It probably doesn't surprise you to learn my hubby gave up football watching once we got four girls so he could engage with them but honestly I miss it - especially SEC college ball!

    1. I used to play Fantasy Football every year, and was so busy the last two years that I didn't. I almost didn't this year, but got in at the last second. :)

      Not big tv watchers here either, Lisa. Except when Backyardigans is on, lol.

    1. Thanks, we made him at Build-a-Bear a couple of years ago.

      FFall is where you join a group of people and draft your own NFL team, from all of the players on every team, and you get predetermined points for accomplishments they achieve during the games.

      It's pretty addicting, a little time-consuming, and a lot of fun!

  6. I used to work as an athletic trainer on the sidelines for a local college team and that is my only experience with football. We even scheduled our wedding on the day of a game- without considering it. Enjoy the season!

  8. Man I love football, it gets cold out and you just crack open a beer by the fire and watch the action! I'm a big NFL fan, but I like college too, seems like they have more passion about the game (as opposed to the money) than the NFL dudes. I don't do any online gaming for football, I just watch and enjoy -- good luck to you though!

  9. Oh your husband is so lucky. Mine has tried to explain football to me so many times but I just don't get it. I usually just go online while everyone else is watching the game!

    1. My husband watches it in his man cave, I mean the basement, & I watch upstairs (so I can watch/play with the kids too).

      It WOULD be hilarious though, if I trekked the kiddos down there on football day. :)

    1. Ah...Kelly...sorry for your loss. The good news, it's only the beginning of the season, and if you like the Giants, you've got SB contenders on your hands. :)

    2. Thanks, Rosey! Hubby and I really wanted a win for this game, but we'll get them next time! :-)

      Have a great day!

  15. When my dad was alive, football was a big deal, now that he's gone, my husband isn't as avid about it. Fall is such a fun time of year!

    1. Well, that's like my husband liking Michigan and me liking Michigan State for college ball (which is true). Makes for a doubly interesting rivalry game, yes? :)
