for the love of the game

today was the official start of football season at our house. it was the first home game. you bet, my husband was up at 7 a.m. loading the truck for the first tailgate of the season. as I was driving to starbucks early this morning, a big pick-up truck pulled up next to me. it was equipped with 8 flags on it. all football, of course. it was at that moment that I "got it" about the love of the game. my husband had a very demanding job a few years ago. he would work around 60-70 hours a week, never get to attend a football game and rarely saw his friends. he decided to give it up not too long ago and have a life! it is fun to see him enjoy what he loves doing most- watching football!
