Around these parts, football and Fridays go together like hot BBQ and cold beer at a tailgate party. And after three years of watching my stepson, Mazi, play for his high school team (and a pretty intense Football 101 For Moms session with his coach), I’m finally starting to actually understand the game and like it. Which is big. Because I much prefer the TV show Friday Night Lights to actually sitting under real ones. It’s amazing what you’ll start liking when your kid is involved! (The funnel cake at the concession stand certainly helps!) Here, my favorite shots from Mazi’s season opener. Go South!

    My husband played professional football (overseas – Hamburg SeaDevils in Germany and with the NY Giants) so football has always been a HUGE part of our lives. Our son just started his first year of tackle football – they had their first practice on Monday 🙂 I was BEAMING, just watching him run out onto the field {in his *gasp* $200 worth of equipment – sheesh I had no idea it would be so expensive!} lol Those are great photos! This post makes me anticipate the first game even MORE! 🙂
