Okay, okay. I’m starting to accept this thing you all call Fall. I’ll deal with it for one reason, and one reason only. And that reason is not the Pumpkin Spiced Lattes that I mentioned yesterday. That one reason is most definitely: Football.
By now you know that I hail from Green Bay, Wisconsin. And if you don’t, you’re clearly not paying close enough attention, now are you? Being born and raised in the biggest football town in the country (self-proclaimed; if it’s not first, it is most definitely in the top three) has made me appreciate football. And if it wasn’t that, it would be the fact that if I wasn’t into football, I would seriously disappoint my parents. And since I’ve already done that a time or two in my teens (okay…maybe in my twenties too), we don’t have time for any more disappointments. Especially since the last major disappointment had something to do with me marrying a Bears fan. I moved all the way to California, just to bring home one of our biggest rivals. Good thing he has such a great personality. And good looks. Everything helps.
So in honor of the upcoming season (the one, in which the Green Bay Packers will take the Lombardi trophy back home to GB), I put my green and gold on and hit the stores. I ended up with a little football gift basket. You know, for all the parties I plan on being invited to. I think if they see this basket, they’ll definitely extend the invitation. And if not, I’ll add jello shots. Who would turn me down with jello shots?
The Dollar Tree is my first stop, because they always have the in-season items I want (no plug there, right?). But really. A football serving bowl, football napkins, football plates, and football party tape?! Hello, SOLD. I bought it all. I also bought the potato skins, chocolate, and the beer mugs there as well. I mean, as I told you before, I cannot walk out without ten items.
I would say I am fully prepared for another amazing football season. And since the Superbowl will be held in our area this season, I am really hoping that the Packers make it that far! I think it’s a very realistic dream.
