Football Fridayyyyyyyy!!!!

As most of you probably know, I NEVER post on Fridays.  I have set a blogging schedule for myself that runs Monday through Thursday and I give myself Friday through Sunday off.  Well today I am making an exception to that blogging schedule as Erin over at Love, Fun and Football is hosting a Football Friday link up and well seeing as I LOVE football and pretty much can't wait until the season starts I think I am going to have to break my no posting on Friday rule in order to talk about one of my favorite sports ever... FOOTBALLLLLLLL!!

So... without further ado... it is time for....

So I am not sure if I have mentioned it on here before but I am a HUGE football fan.  I am actually pretty sure that I am a bigger football fan than my husband.  I love nothing more than spending my Sunday afternoon flipping back and forth between the games with a beer in hand.... or spending my Monday night watching the game with some pizza and a beer.  Sometimes I am pretty sure that I am more like a dude when it comes to football because seriously during the fall to me there is nothing better than beer, pizza and of course FOOTBALL!

I guess before I keep going on and on and on about how much I love football I should probably tell you which team I am rooting for this year, huh?  Although I would normally say that my blood runs orange and blue ('Ray Bucknell!) during football season it is all about the blue and red of my NEW YORK GIANTS!!! 

I have been a Giants fan for as long as I can remember... there are even pictures of me in Kindergarten when I was a Giants cheerleader for Halloween.  I mean, you know I was destined to be a huge fan if at the age of 5 I wanted to be a Giants cheerleader for Halloween.  And then I wore my costume AGAIN when the Giants were in the Super Bowl that year.  So needless to say, since I was at least 5 years old I have been a HUGE giants fan.  I have been a fan since the days of Phil Simms, Rodney Hampton, Bill Parcels, and Lawrence Taylor just to name a few.

When the Giants won their last Super Bowl my carpet got a red wine shower as I dropped my glass of red wine sangria when they won because I was so excited.  Thankfully M is a wonder and was able to get the red stain out of the white carpet like a champ and you would never know... except for the people who were here will NEVER let me live that moment down.  

My NYG cupcake for our Super Bowl Party
I have continued to remain a Giants fan through thick and thin... even when they have had HORRIBLE seasons (i.e. last season when Eli threw 3 interceptions in Game 1 vs. the Cowboys... his first throw was an interception and I knew from that moment on that we were going to have a tough season!)!  Nothing stands between me and cheering for my NYG!

I was beyond excited when Michael Strahan was selected to be the new co-host of Live with Kelly!  And even more excited when he was inducted into the Hall of Fame just a short time ago.  

I own a few Giants jerseys with my newest one being a Victor Cruz jersey that my hubby gave me for Christmas.  I mean who doesn't love Victor Cruz and his salsa dancing tendencies?!?!

Being a Giants fan in Eagles territory is tough, but I will still rock my Giants jerseys every game day and deal with the constant badgering of Eagles fans... because I mean when it comes down to it... how many rings do they have??

Go Giants!!

Who are you cheering for this football season?


  1. So glad you broke your schedule just for the sake of my link up ;) YAY! The Giants are kindof a team I'm neutral about... don't love 'em, and don't hate 'em either haha. I'm sure you're happy to hear that! We did beat them in 2012 which felt pretty good ;)

  2. Like Erin, I am pretty neutral about the Giants, so hopefully they will have a good season for you :)

    1. Glad to find some people who are neutral about the Giants here! I mean I would love it if you loved them as much as I did, BUT living in Eagles territory with a bunch of Giants haters I will take what I can get!

  3. Those cupcakes look delicious.

    I am not a football person at all. My husband roots for the Browns. They rarely do well, so it means I don't have to endure a lot of games.

  4. Yay! I can't wait for full on force football season!

  5. Woohoo football!!! I love football and I'm soooo excited for this season....I literally can't wait! Obviously I'm a Broncos/Patriots fan but I don't mind the Giants either. :)

  6. Love it! I grew up a Pittsburgh fan and my parents have had season tickets since the 80s. I remember several years ago watching football with my father in law and he was cheering against the Steelers and I was so, so angry. I realized that outside of a sports bar, I'd never been watching football in a house where people weren't cheering for the Steelers.


Comments make my day!! Let me know what you are thinking and I promise I will get back to you!
