Are you ready for some football?
It is finally starting to cool down which reminds me that fall…and football season… is right around the corner. With pre-season underway and Fantasy Football drafts done, I’m quite excited. Like most avid sports fans, I arrange my weekend around football games: for me it is Notre Dame on Saturday (hopefully, it won’t be as bad as last year) and the Colts on Sunday.
On Saturdays, I typically get calls from old college friends who are also watching the games. We’ll talk on the phone and reminisce about game day traditions, tailgating and the time we met Dickie V…of course, we talk about the game too. I may not be in South Bend anymore, but I’m always decked out in my own game day uniform. It usually consists of my #83 jersey (Jeff Samardzjia, now pitching in the Chicago Cubs system), a Notre Dame hat, some very worn, comfortable, holey jeans that should have probably been thrown away and a pair of flip-flops or tennis shoes--depending on how late in the season it is. It always makes me miss the good old days that weren’t so long ago, but sometimes seem that way. I may not be at every home game anymore, but I’ve still got my game day uniform and the memories to go with it.
