Fan Friday: Football Through My Eyes

A funny thing happened on the way to the fantasy football game. In one of my 3 leagues I'm playing in this year, my mom and grandma are in the league. I call my grandma, Nan. Nan is 87 years old, and playing Fantasy Football.... in case you wondered where I get this craziness from.







Well when we did our live draft last weekend, I laughed because of all the team names I listed here my mom chose Joe Buck Yourself. 

Get to the point, Sarah....

So I go to set my roster yesterday, only to find I am matched up against this team in week one...







I guess you never outgrow your mom telling you to watch your mouth, right mom? And sorry Nan for giving mom the name to use. I'll go to my room now.



-------
On to the regularly scheduled broadcast for today!




1. You see a 68 pound ball of fury screaming expletives at the 369 pound right tackle's mother

2. When a friend asks you if there is a game on Saturday?



3. Saturday Morning waking up with College Game Day on tv, and mimosas in the kitchen.


4. While waiting for the new rankings to come out after a big win.



5. A Number One falls to an unranked team


6. Your QB is doing the post game interview


7. You find the perfect tailgating dress, in the perfect combination of your team's colors


8. A co-worker starts talking about her school's 35 point win last weekend


9. Your team gets shut out


10. The Kicker loses the game.


11. The Kicker Wins the Game



12. You make a new friend that loves the same team you love


13. Your team ends the season with only 5 wins... not 6.


14. Plans after a win


15. Plans after a loss


16. Trying to eat tailgate food after you've already had too much to drink


17. How you feel in August


18. How you feel in January

  8. Your Nan and Mom are funny! I just taught my mom how to text so I know she's not playing any fantasy football with me and I'm pretty sure my grandma still owns a flip phone so she's off the table too.

  9. As a fellow SEC fan, I share all of your enthusiasm. However, I am spitting internet venom at those of you who can watch whatever flippin game you want to. Living in Germany is awesome. MISSING COLLEGE FOOTBALL SEASON BLOWS!!!!

  16. Hahahaha-- the kicker ones are the best. And they're all so true...

  17. The let me love you one cracked my shit up!

  18. Aha Love this and love you and your Nan is awesome. I am avoiding telling my pop-pop about this because it would only cause havoc in my household. But he would probably kick everyone butts at 85.

  19. OK I'm cracking up because you said you were going to use a tame name since your mom and grandma were in the same league, then your mom goes and chooses Joe Buck Yourself (which is my name in one of my leagues) and THEN she gets yelled at by Nan! But it led to an even better name for your mom, I think.

    My grandma is 95 and is a huge sports fan. If only she knew how to use a computer, she'd be all over fantasy football!

  20. HAHAHAH I loved this! Yea, I actually laughed out loud! Also, I love Nan! Hilarious!

  21. Haha yep! I'm still amazed by the whole southern girls wearing dresses thing. We do NOT do that in Iowa. You can't do keg stands in a dress.

  22. #3 and #10.......SO TRUE. Oh my gosh. College Gameday became a routine for me only after they came to TCU in 2009. That was a blast to get up at 4 am to get breakfast and then go stake out spots for the show! And #10. After suffering through at least 3 years of a HORRIBLY kicker, we finally have the best kicker ever and he's SUCH a God-send. Praise Jesus for our awesome kicker. Bad kickers are the worst. Literally, the worst. That's ALL you do. Your job is to kick the damn ball. UGH. I have to make myself stop before the rant comes on.

    Anyway, this list. So true. Love it.

    1. I would not have chosen Joe Buck Yourself if Sarah didn't write about it. So it's her fault. Yes, I'm feeling great about Peyton's 7 passing touchdowns. I hope your mom let's your keep your name.

  27. HAHAHA, I LOVE these gifs. Also, your mom and Nan are so stinkin' cute! I'm going to be partaking in some epic tail gating tomorrow-- I got my man and his buddies (and me) 50 yard line tickets (8th row!) to the USC/Washington State game. Yeah baby!
