There are many disadvantages to following your favorite sporting team on the road.
- You don't know the stadium or city (hello waiting 45 minutes for a single cab to drive by).
- You are out-numbered by the opposing team's fans.
- If you lose the game it is a LONG walk out of the stadium
However, there are also so many advantages:
- Being one of the few fans allows room to get up close and personal with the players
- Autographs are a lot easier to come by
- The announcers see your huge groups of fan and put you on TV. A lot.
Of course the only time I was on TV was when I was taking a drink of my uncle's beer while my daughter was sitting on my lap.
(Thanks to a friend who sent that to me!)
I'm not holding on to her or anything, because that concrete looks super soft.
Mom of the year right here.
I recorded the games just in case we made it on TV, so last night after Ina went to sleep I got a good laugh watching my family through high definition.
My mom dancing.
My grandma sleeping.
Someone in my family picking his / her nose (not naming any names, but I am never deleting that from my DVR!)
Other than watching the game on TV I spent my free time playing vacation relief - unpacking, laundry, sleeping, etc. So today I am ready to get back in the normal swing of things.
Have a good one!
Question for the day: Have you ever made it on TV at a sporting event?
Unfortunately, I have made it on TV at a sporting event before. A few years ago, I was at a college football game and the camera guy came over and told us to scream for the camera. I was so excited that I started pointing to the Mizzou emblem on my shirt.
When I watched the game with my family the next day it appeared I was just pointing at my chest. Super cool, I know.
