For the next 12 days my friends, friends of my friends and ton of people I don’t know will encroaching on the area I call home. Friends and friends of friends actually in my home. Although I have severe territorial issues I am excited about the festivities and being able to take part in something I have come to love as much as any MAN.Thru the festivities will be blogging from a FEMALE athlete’s perspective.
I am a Baltimore Raven (Yes, still very depressed from the recent stomping they Colts gave us.) I should explain that I started out as anti-football as they come. In high school I was dating the star running back at my school. It was typical for me to sit at home until the game was over, walk to the school, ask my friends or my boyfriends family what my boyfriend did well then regurgitate all of that with gusto when he finally emerged from the locker room. It was explained to me that it was considered sacrilege to be in is such a big football town dating an all-star and not have the slightest idea about football. I was forced to pick a team and begin to follow it. I was raised in the Pittsburgh area so it would have been a no brainer to be a Steeler but that was too much like the right thing to do. I picked the Ravens because my favorite color is purple. The following year they won the super bowl so I knew I had picked the right team and have stuck by them ever since becoming a die hard football fan in the process.
I am not claiming to be a guru or even to have what a guy might consider real football knowledge but I am far from clueless. Still, my style of watching is completely my own, tailored specifically to my own taste. I could care less about what people think about the way I reason, the people, team or games I choose to watch etc. So I welcome your comments on whatever craziness I write over the next two weeks but I will not apologize for my wacky point of view. Talk to you soon
