From September to February, you can find us watching football on Sunday afternoons. It’s become a tradition in our house. We make “football food” – wings, pizza, nachos, chili, etc. , and rock our Patriots jerseys on the couch. Even Odin loves football. I’m not even kidding. When he was 3 days old, a football game was on tv and he wouldn’t look away. When he was a few months old, all you had to say was “touchdown” and up went both hands.
For Week 1 this year, we went to Buffalo to cheer on our team, the Patriots. Advice: when wearing an opposing team’s jersey to an NFL game, bring a baby. Everyone loves babies. We got to the stadium early and went down to the first row to watch the Patriots warm up. Odin loved being just a few feet away from the guys he watches on tv every Sunday.
Hopefully we will be able to take him to a game each season.
Football is one of our favourite things about the fall and Football Sunday’s are just one of our family traditions. What are some of your fall family traditions?
