Getting the Most out of Football Season with The Family
The football season is a great opportunity for your family to hang together and get behind a common team (or foe, if that’s the case.)
As cooler temperatures begin to reach us and gather us into their chilly grasp and we change out the baseball boys of summer for the football warriors of winter, it is time to change gears and get ready for the new game, namely, football. As a game spectator, your adult beverage of choice might not change (beer,wine, whiskey), etc. but the way you view the sport may.
Tailgating has become as much a part of football in the past decade as anything else including many other possible situations. In fact, it is one of the most important components of your football viewing experience, but there are many other ways to boost your viewing pleasure.
There are some great ways to exploit your football season experience as well. Here are a few:
Even though tailgates are technically an anatomy part of your typical pickup truck, any SUV or another type of compact vehicle will most likely have a fold-out body part that can make it happen. Dropping the tailgate and firing up the portable grill and opening up the ice chest full of beers and sodas will make you a football hero. Not only that but if you are ready for an instant tailgating situation you will be ready for any prepping action.
- Decking out your man-cave.
If you are not close to the stadium but enjoy a great TV or internet connection, you will probably do well-taking advantage of your garage or basement area. Big screen TV and a tiki bar? Make it happen! It’s easy to enjoy football without the ticket cost or the gasoline expenditure.
- Get the right eats!
The experience of enjoying any sports events is never the same without appropriate chow and football is no different. Typically, hamburgers, steaks, and hot dogs straight off the grill are the norm but don’t forget the basics such as chips and dip and a comprehensive veggie tray.
- Upgrade your TV or viewing space.
Depending on how dedicated you are to your weekend sports events, you will like to examine your choices of viewing media. Today’s TV’s are really great at providing a superior viewing experience but in many situations, you can do better. For example, cable is a good choice, as is satellite reception. If you are not a good candidate for these, consider a digital converter.
- Keep It Local
Finally, to get the most out of football season, get local! Although it might seem that all the big drama and stories are about the big national teams, you would be surprised to discover that your local high school or college games are every bit more exciting (and as inspirational as well.)
Football season is always a time to celebrate and is replete with methods to do just that in the best way possible. Take advantage of the fall harvest foods and add them to your bar-b-que menu while the season is our friend. The football season is a great opportunity for your family to hang together and get behind a common team (or foe, if that’s the case.)
