Weekly Image of Life Challenge: Event

15 Feb



It’s part of our culture.

It’s an all-day event.

It begins early in the morning and ends late at night.

It involves tailgating with  breakfast sandwiches, and orange juice, followed by BBQ wings, nachos, Goldfish Crackers, Capri Sun pouches and plenty of other beverages.

It involves high-fives and smiles, half-time shows and Thomas the Train companions.

It involves a stadium filled with fans cheering and my son enjoying every minute of it.

It involves touchdowns, excitement, and unforgettable woo-hoo moments with my son.

His first college football experience … definitely an event worth remembering.

    Very cool, I love taking my girls to sporting events (they like Tigers games). Thanks for bringing back the memories.

      Baseball is always fun. He asked me if they had a halftime show or band I said no, but he liked the seventh inning stretch.

      Yes! Go Bears! They didn’t do too well this year, but this was taken a while back when they actually went to a bowl game 🙂

    Ah wish I was there. When I lived in Boston one of my buddies got me season tickets for the BC football for really cheap. It was awesome! I lived right across the street.

    I’ve never taken my daughters to a football game, but we have gone to many baseball games. I tried to indoctrinate them early. My first never really took to it. She’d pack a bag of activities for her to do while at the game. My youngest enjoys the ballpark experience much more than her sister. When the whole family goes, we have a great time, but often Mom and big sis will stay home while little sis and I head out to Citi Field to see the Mets.

      Football is usually our sport of choice, but baseball is always awesome. And yes you definitely have to take “the bag of activities” whenever there’s a stadium or tailgating involved. But it’s great that one of your daughters really enjoys the experience. I can tell you first hand, she will definitely look back on it fondly.

    It is an exciting event that celebrates life, family , friendship, of what it means to live in America. Your little boy will always remember this fun and thrilling day and yes, I bet it will be a family celebration year after year which another priceless experience and memory we can give to our love ones.

      I try to take him at least once a year. We watch it on television during the season, but live and in person is always better. 🙂
