'Tis the Season!

I don't know if I've ever mentioned it, but I'm a huge college football fan ;)

I really, really, really, really am.

I haven't always been. I've always watched-- didn't want to get disowned after all-- but I didn't really get it... or care... until I was in high school. And then it was more about the fact that several of the cute boys in my class played.

But over the years I've learned more about the game and have come to truly love it.

It's such an interesting game. I think partly because it's a guys game. The way they interact on the field is different than anything women do. Oh, sure there are rare examples of girls stepping up to the line of scrimmage, but for the most part, certainly at the college level and beyond, it's a testosterone infused display. And as liberated as I am, I'm okay with that. Really okay.

(For one thing, they hit to hurt. I mean, the slower the other guy gets up, the better they feel about it. No woman in her right mind would get on the opposite side of that).

Anyway, 'tis the season and I got to thinking (with a little help from Twitter) that football really does have a lot in common with... you guessed it... sex.

In fact, I came up with ten things football and sex have in common.

1. Deep penetration is a good thing.

2. When you do it right, there's a lot of groaning and sweating.

3. The guys who know what to do with their balls are the ones you want on your team.

4. Sometimes you just have to go up the middle.

5. There comes a point when you just have to go for it.

6. There should be good tight ends.

7. For every guy involved... it's all about scoring.

8. When a guy does finally score, all his friends are just as excited as he is.

9. Everybody wants the guy with the good hands.

10. Sometimes just a few more inches make all the difference.

Feel free to add more! :)

And here's all I really need to get my heart pumping! Go Big Red!

Enjoy the season!

Hi Erin,

I'll admit, I don't get football at all, but this had me cracking up so hard I was tearing up.

Here's my best shot: We all like a man who can "go long!" (sorry, that was just bad.)

11. Seeing a guy put his hands between another guys legs *g*

That's the way to get in the spirit ladies! Maybe you'll watch football now with a new perspective! ;)

Erin - that is hilarious!

Sunday (NFL) football is mandatory in our house, and I've grown to love football. I am always amused at how much of the commentary sounds dirty. "tight end" *snort*

Not a football fan, but watching a pro lacrosse game once I heard the annoucer say that a player was "getting it up in the corner!" Gotta love that.

I don't know much about football but sacking the quarterback always sounds dirty to me. Now, I have some dirty hockey comments I could share, LOL!

Why go short when you can go deep. ;) And I've never been a fan of the pump fake.

Unnecessary roughness in the end zone could get you ejected.

Erin Nicholas said...

Ah, see why I love this sport? ;) Kelly, I want to hear some dirty hockey terms! The pump fake! *snort* You know the announcers are cracking themselves up the whole time!
