college football season starts = my DVR filled with every. single. televised. game.
why? because my fiance is a sports editor for a university wire, and it's his job to watch them all.
and you'd think that since i went to big 10 school and i'm marrying a sports editor that i would enjoy watching football even a little bit. ugh, i'm almost ashamed to tell you this, but i don't.
but i've tried to like football! i really have! my freshman year at purdue i went to every home game. every one! and i did it up right too. i went to slayter hill and drank warm, flat beer from random fraternity tailgates. i stood (STOOD) in the student section of ross-ade for four (FOUR) hours at a time. and i did it in both insanely hot weather AND sub zero temperatures. (you get BOTH in football. how fun.) so you see, i TRIED.
but by senior year i had given up trying to pretend that i liked football. i stayed back at the house and babysat for sorority alum and honestly...playing with babies was way more fun for me. (maybe the best part was that babies didn't give me a hangover at 4:00 in the afternoon. also babies are a good excuse to watch Veggie Tales.)
but. BUT! i will always, always, always, cheer for the boilermakers. because i heart purdue and because i want purdue to win the game. i just don't want to watch it.
BOILER UP this weekend!
