It’s that time of year again…
the time when the leaves start changing, the air gets crisp and many married women become single once again…at least on Sundays.
Whether college football is your thing, NFL or even fantasy (God bless those wives) it definitely consumes the lives of many men.
There are certainly levels of consumption:
Let’s start with the average dude…he roots for his team of choice, tunes in on Sunday to see who’s playing and catches up on all the rest with SportsCenter.
Next we have the “fan”. He roots for one team, likes to spout off statistics and buys tickets to see his team play. His Sunday’s are booked from now until January. He tail-gates and yells at the TV. His wife knows that the backyard project is going to have to wait until Spring and she wouldn’t even mention the invite for Sunday brunch.
Finally, the Crazy.
This is the guy that owns jerseys…even though the last time he actually played in a football game was 1992.
He is part of multiple fantasy leagues.
He may or may not have been spotted on the Jumbo-Tron with his face painted and a foam finger.
He lives and breathes football all year long, from the drafts to the training camps to the pre-season.
His Sundays are ruined when his team loses and considers the players extended family.
Now, if you don’t live in the United States you are probably not affected by Sunday Football Syndrome…
but, to those of us who reside here in Football-land, we all probably know a few of the “types” I listed above.
So since you’re here why don’t we make football a little cute?
Pizza is one of the quintessential football foods…
but, since this is my blog…I’m gonna do pizza MY way.
Excuse me for a moment while I share some candy porn…
