Football season is here! I think that every year Ben and I are together I get a little more into fall and football season. And it really helps when your two favorite football teams are totally kicking ass and taking names. Oh, I’m a die hard Washington State Cougar (Go Cougs!) and life long Seahawks fan. Just an fyi.
I mean sure, it’s still the first couple of weeks of the official NFL season, but I am so stoked for the rest of this year and what’s to come. Seattle is no longer the fat nerdy kid of the NFL, the one who never gets asked to dances and the one that never gets the girl…Well, hey girl, it’s on this year. I can feel it. And did you hear that we broke the WORLD RECORD for loudest stadium? Yeah, last weekend the 12th man was out in force and shattered the world record. We in Seattle take things very seriously – like our football, our futball (Sounders FC), and our coffee. Beer, too. We like beer. And snacks. And you can’t have a football game without copious amounts of snacks.
Exhibit….okay, how many more exhibits do you need? Clearly, you need to just make these.
