The calendar year is divided into two halves for me: football season and the offseason. Try as I might to have other hobbies between the months of September and January, football is an all-consuming pastime. I may be a girly girl who loves shopping, talking, and watching chick flicks, but there are some confessions I have about my love of the NFL that only a true fan would understand.
I once missed a wedding for a playoff game.
I get annoyed when things are scheduled during football games. I know this is an unrealistic expectation, but I can’t help it. The worst thing I have ever done is to miss a friend’s entire wedding. I would have been on time, but a crazy 2001 Colts wild-card playoff game went into overtime. The Colts then lost, adding further insult to injury. I rushed to the church and tried to sneak into the back before anyone noticed, but it was locked. Awful, right? I have since learned my lesson to set my DVR to record the big games, but everyone knows that is not as fun as watching the game live.
