The Greatest Of All Time

What a game.

I can’t say I always enjoy sitting for four hours to watch football, but yesterday was totally worth it.

I started watching at a bar with one of my best friends, and we sipped milkshakes as we watched the Falcons get a couple of touchdowns. I knew Robert was probably not super happy about how the game was going, but I am a fierce optimist, so I kept saying to myself that the Patriots could still make a comeback. I actually felt really at peace most of the game, not because I didn’t feel invested, but I just had one of those crazy gut feelings that the Patriots would come through. I’d be lying if I said my heart wasn’t racing the last ten minutes of the game or in overtime, but it was just one of those weird moments where I felt like I knew everything would work out in my favor (As a sidenote, I am so sorry if you are a Falcons fan. That must have been really tough to watch; I feel pretty bad for everyone involved in that organization right now).

The Patriots have been a pretty big part of this past year for me, as I’ve been working on the Tom Brady project and kind of converted to becoming a Patriots fan. In the past I haven’t changed my sports teams for a guy — though I did date a Cowboys fan once, which was convenient for football games — but the Patriots have been different. I love the energy the fans have, and I actually genuinely like a lot of the players on the team. The more I see about the organization the more I really fall for it.

At first I enjoyed going and watching the Patriots play the Cowboys with Robert and having a friendly rivalry, but throughout his deployment I have grown incredibly fond of the New England team. They will always have a special place in my heart, and I have made the bittersweet decision to trade out my Tony Romo jersey for a Tom Brady one next season. I had already been trying to figure out who I was going to go for, as Romo has had a rough year, but instead of grabbing a Jason Witten or Dez Bryant jersey, my heart is leading me in a different direction. I will always love the Cowboys, but now I have two teams my heart feels really happy about. It will be interesting to see who I choose to root for when the Cowboys make a comeback to play the Patriots in the next Super Bowl. That will be the true test to see who my loyalty really lies with. 😉

  1. I’m a Redskins fan, but my fella is a Falcons fan. I’ve watched every Falcons game for the past 2 years, so I would consider myself a fan at this point (still backseat to my ‘Skinnies though). The thing non-Falcons fans don’t know is that the Falcons are almost known for putting up a good lead during the first half then blowing it in the second. It was absolute heartbreak watching the game with my fella and his bestie who are die-hard fans. It would have been nice to see the Falcons win, but I guess it just wasn’t their time.

    1. Are they really?! Oh gosh, that’s too bad. Even the Falcons owner seemed to think they had the game in the bag! I’m so sorry; I’m sure that was a really rough loss. 😦 It wasn’t fun seeing my Patriots fans upset the first half, but they ended up getting off easy. I hope the Falcons fans get some great wins next season to make up for it! ❤

      1. My fella and I go to the bar every Sunday during football season, and he often ends the day fairly drunk due to the stress he endures watching every game. The Falcons have given up bigger leads than the one they had last Sunday. It’s hard being a Falcons fan for sure.

      2. Ugh oh no!! Well better luck next year then. At least the Redskins have been doing alright lately! I live in the DC area, so I have seen the ups and downs, but my friends seemed pretty happy this season. 🙂
