I'm not really a football fan.

Don't tell my father-in-law, but I'm not really a football fan. I just learned this weekend that the Vikings QB is Gus Frerotte. I am, however, a fan of these related football items:

Football pants
Appetizers
Super Bowl commercials
Sunday afternoons with the game on

It's family tradition that we take a Vikings family picture every year...here's this year's version!

You pull off the ol' purple and yellow pretty well.
Football pants, that's cute.
You know what's funny? I didn't know the name of the quarterback, until just now when you told me. And my hubby gets the NFL sunday ticket.
I'm a fair-weather fan. I'll admit it. Even then, I'm cheering for them, but not really watching. If they ever make it to the superbowl, I'll be glued to the screen.

I guess I am a fair-weather fan, too. I don't hate watching the games, I just don't have the schedule memorized...or the players as it turns out :).

Leanne, I'm with you on the football pants (what is it about them? Yum!), appetizers and Super Bowl commercials. I have no idea what our record is, or anyone elses in the league, but I get a weekly rundown each week of how each player did in fantasy football. Gotta love that, I listen with my FULL, UNDIVIDED attention. Mmmm-hmmmm...

Tara - there is no other time when pants that are that tight in the thigh are appropriate on men IMO. :)

Just minding my own business, or yours rather, when I come across Cory's comment.

Oh man!! I'm dyin'. Lol! (That just made my night.)

I realize I'm pretty easily amused. But that was pretty darn funny.

THis is a GREAT picture!! Ok so seriously you know how hard core sports fan Matt is and you just made me a aware of who the quarterback is. :)- I don't mind watching either but not ALL day every Sunday! :)

I love your husband. Even though I only met him once... at your wedding. He's great. Good to see the two of you are still going strong! :)

I like your list.

At least it makes for a great photo!

When you said football pants, I thought you meant specific pants you wear to watch games- like sweatpants with a stretchy waist for excessive snacking. :D Must mean I don't share the opinion of the pants.

Cory, how 'bout you wear football pants on Thanksgiving. I'll give you 20 dollars!
