I’m one of those girls who loves sports…from a spectators perspective, and mostly baseball and football. I played soccer as a really young girl, but we moved so much I never joined any other sports. Total bummer, because I’m very competitive.
I grew up loving the Broncos, because at the time, I’d lived in Colorado the longest and loved John Elway. He did break my heart after I moved to Washington. My brother and I got tickets to see the Broncos vs Seahawks. Of course I rooted for the Broncos in the midst of all the Seahawk fans. After the game, we waited for the players. Elway came out, I screamed for him (along with everyone else) and he just kept walking.
I was devastated. My football hero ignored me. Then I heard someone next to me say he was stuck on himself and I never gave him another thought.
Now I live in Minnesota and follow the Vikings. Last year wasn’t impressive whatsoever. In fact, it was downright depressing. The year before I enjoyed myself immensely because I kept calling all the games and ticking off my co-workers! I find joy in the little things.
I have no idea what to expect from the Vikes this year. It’ll be interesting to say the least.
Along with the pre-season, everyone’s getting ready for Fantasy Football. I’ve heard of it over the years, but have never participated. Have no clue as to how it works as a matter of fact.
I’ve been told I have to pick a team. I have to choose them September 4th. Anyone want to help a girl out here? Here’s the spots I need to fill:
2 Wide Receivers
2 Running Backs
Defense (you pick an entire teams defense for example you would pick the Steeler Defense)
Any advice or suggestions would be delightful! Feel free to chime in, or ask your hubby/boyfriend for some suggestions!
