As much as I hate to admit it, that’s me.
And as hard as people have tried through the years to convince me that watching football (in person or on TV) is a fun thing to do, I just don’t buy it.
- I’ve tried front & center in the stands.
- I’ve been up close & personal on the field.
- I’ve enjoyed the luxury of skyboxes.
- I’ve had tickets to some of the biggest games that should have meant something to me.
Still, for some reason, I tend to gravitate toward the fun party games and football party recipes instead of the actual game itself.
Poor Jim, he had no idea what he was marrying into (8 years ago). Unfortunately, I think he pays the price for his non-football loving wife being in charge of the TV remote control, too. That’s probably why he’s usually in the running for “the last place award” in the football pool each year. (Trust me, there’s a much worse name than that for such a prestigious award!)
Anyhoo, at least I have attempted to learn more about the game of football.
Here are some of the best links I’ve found for the non-football fans who want to learn the basics of football… fast!
The Basics Of Football
I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV. You can always find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
