I'm not much of a football girl
That makes me unamerican right?
I also HATE apple pie
But I do like baseball
I feel like I did my part and put in my time
The whole first season that we were dating I sat my ass on the couch next time The Boy and watch EVERY SINGLE GAME
I was even thinking of borrowing my sisters "Football for Dummies" book to try and get myself into it more
But I just can't do it
It stops every 5 freakin seconds and I can't handle it
At least basketball (which I like to watch) keeps moving the entire time
The only thing good about football is the parties and dip
I like dip
My simple disinterest in it has now turned to disdain
See, The Boy comes from a big football family
His parents have season tickets and the whole family is alllll about it
They teased me in the beginning of our relationship about not liking it and I could take the jokes for a while...and then....
It just got old!
I remember one time over text they asked The Boy if he had seen a specific play
He told them no because I was watching something on the TV
They said that I should get back to my baking and mending so he could watch the football game
Call me a Sensitive Sally.....but that was kind of it for me
I just totally checked out of any effort I was thinking of putting in
At least I bake well ;)
And I can mend the shit out of a pair a pants
When was the last time watching football for hours resulted in an awesome cake and handmade gifts?
I'm gonna go with NEVER!
(can you sense some slight bitterness? haha)
But in typically Busy Broad fashion football season was just another excuse to make a wreath
One even The Boy would love
Look HERE for a tutorial on how I make most my wreaths
I did this one the exact same way
After the basic form was done I made the Cardinals logo out of foam
And glued some cardboard to the back for sturdiness
Then just glued it on along with some little footballs I got for 59c over on the wood aisle in Michael's
This is about as close as I get to going all Rah Rah for football
