Hooray for football!

You may have noticed that a new category popped up in our sidebar several weeks ago. I have been a football fan for as long as I can remember which includes fond memories of watching the Bears win the Superbowl in 1985.

Does that date me?

I’ve lived in several different places over the years and added a few more teams to root for along the way, but the Bears will always be my favorite professional team.

When it comes to college football, I grew up in the heart of Big Ten country. Most of my family (dad, sister, brother) went to the University of Illinois, but I just enjoy watching those teams play in general. After college (my school was too small for football), Eric and I moved to Georgia, where my love affair with SEC football began. This is by far the best conference in college football (despite the #1 vs. #2 game today), and although Georgia has had a lackluster year, I see a lot of potential in Matt Stafford.

Now that we live in NC, I have an entirely new conference to get used to, the ACC. Not much to say here beyond the fact that the two closest teams are infinitely better at basketball. :)

This brings us to the big game today. I’m thrilled the Big Ten has two undefeated teams this year, but I don’t think the loser of this game should be given another chance in the national title game. The BCS should give another team a shot at beating number one.

Off to watch Chris, Lee, and Kirk!
