ladies and gentlemen, youth in your young and old in your age, the time has come! College Football is BACK!
As you may know things have changed dramatically for this BC fan in the past year. I went to college and in less then a year I had met my wife and we are going on 4 months of marriage 😀 I am thoroughly enjoying every moment of it as marriage is basically, the coolest thing ever invented!
With that being said there are some things that I have had to introduce to my wife and am slowly teaching her….Yes she knows nothing of the art of football 😥 She has never watched a game and she can’t wrap her mind around ‘why people enjoy watching people get tackled’. Well my love, I have compiled a list of 10 reasons why anyone in their right (or wrong) sense of mind, would want to watch football. Ready!? Let’s begin:
1) Its friendly competition, with VIOLENCE!
-Who loves competition? Everyone! Studies say that not only do people enjoy competition but that people are obsessed with winning!
2) IF YOU CAN’T BEAT EM, BEAT EM!
-A quote my father used to say. For those moments in life where you can’t win, football gives you the opportunity to literally “BEAT” the opponent.
3) YOU HAVE AN EXCUSE TO DRESS CASUAL!
-Yes, you can openly flaunt your favorite teams colors. Maybe even go extreme and be that dude/dudet who wears their game day jersey to church, like this guy 😉
4) YOU HAVE LEGITIMATE REASON TO TRASH TALK
-Are you that one on Facebook who loves the drama? Who can’t wait to dive into another debate or fight on good ‘ole social media? Well I’m here to tell you college football will bring that love right to your homepage 😉
5) YOU CAN EAT JUNK FOOD….EVERY WEEK!
-You don’t have to wait till Thanksgiving or Christmas, because every week is BOTH! Grab the cannoli’s, ice cream, fried oreo’s, wings, turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing (hey if your feelin it, why not!).
6) this ones for the ladies…ALL DAY WITH YOUR MAN 😉
-Yeah, imagine a whole day, just you and your man. Oh snap, not to mention the BROWNIE points you’d get by cheering on his favorite team with him..okay this one’s not a really good reason…NEXT!
7) THE ACCOMPLISHMENT OF VICTORY!
-Okay you’ve done it, you made it through a grueling 3.5 hours of football and better yet, your team WON! Okay so its time to partayyyy, do whatever! Go out to eat, jump around and be stupid, yell at the top of your lungs, trash talk on social media! DO IT ALL!…
That leads us to our next point….
8) THE AGONY OF DEFEAT….
-If the time has passed and your team has come up short…It’s time to go into hibernation….for a day…..THEN GET CRAZY AND PUMPED AGAIN FOR NEXT WEEKS GAME! College football will enhance your commitment skills, especially when your team sucks…
9) YOU WILL HAVE MOMENTS THAT YOU’LL NEVER FORGET!
-Remember the last time you went to a family reunion and everybody had some awesome story to tell except you!? Well I’m here to tell you, NO MORE! Next time you will have some crazy ridiculous story to share with the whole family! Take the throne, make Uncle Shwin take a seat.
10) DO IT FOR AMERICA!
-HELLO, Football is such an American sport that it has a different name in other countries! American Football is unique, exclusive and patriotic. Need I say more 😉
Now go, be a man (…or woman) and take the step, become well acquainted with a team, become a fan and of course HAVE FUN!!
