As an independent woman I must confess football and I have had our issues. They are not big issues mind you but they exist. I don’t understand the rules and game exactly but I get the overall gist. The game is complicated. It is a lot for a social football viewer to keep up with.
I am typically proud of myself if I know who’s actually playing. I give my Dad credit for this he wasn’t a big football fan. Football was not on the TV set playing every weekend at our house. I had to learn how to actively participate as a “social football fan”.
Amazingly, I have a few girlfriends that are die-hard fans. Fans that know the teams, players, coaches and stats which totally impress me with their knowledge. They know how to watch a game and call the plays before the talking heads render an opinion. I am in awe of their skills.
In our group of friends we share hosting football games so the party and our Bama Mascots move around. Everyone in our group is busy and at times our men are left to watch the game alone. This leads to a volley of texts back and forth among the group. Not to mention the occasional very loud noises heard at my house when someone misses a play. There was a particularly loud noise heard on January 9th.
These are a few of my College or NFL football highlights:
Football is a reason to have a party and socialize with friends, game on, food and beverages in abundance. Football is an event to share and watching the entire game is not mandatory.
It is a way to connect to people whether they support your team or compete. I enjoy the camaraderie, bands and excited touchdown dances that show the joy of “Damn, I caught that!”
Football is part of our social fabric whether you truly love football or you’re a “social football fan”. All football parties whether college or NFL must have food, required beer and mostly friends.
