Go Seattle Seahawks!

 

“The problem with winter sports is that — follow me closely here — they generally take place in winter.” 
― Dave Barry

015We are about 90 minutes away from the kickoff between the Seattle Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers. This spurs me on to talk about families.

Many of us felt like the stork dropped us off at the wrong doorstep, but eventually learned to love the people who raised us, even if it took years of therapy.

One of the fond memories of my childhood was to sit with my dad and watch football. Over the years, others would come and go during the games, but it was an excitement I won’t forget. Later, when my brother and I were older, my dad created a brick out of foam to throw at the TV. It was so funny watching adults behave this way.

Today, I have several choices of where to watch the game, but I think I’m going to choose to sit with Domingo, my dog while I watch, and remember my dad.

Go, Seahawks!

By the time you read this, the game may be over, but if not – join me!

    Being an Aussie I am a keen sports follower – at this time of the year our televisions and sporting fields feature two major sports – cricket and tennis. While Australia is hosting tennis tournaments with players from around the world, this summer many of us have focussed on the cricket between Australia and England. We love beating the Poms at cricket and so far, the English team have not won a game!!! Go Aussies!

  2. I have tons of memories of sitting in the den with my grandfather, dad, and my brothers to watch football. Lots of great memories. Enjoy the game!

  3. I love the idea of a foam brick. With my husband and three sons all avid sports fans, I think we’ll be adopting your brick!
