Ah yes, football season is back!! 
Be still my heart! I have been an avid football fan since I was 16. 
Now we won’t discuss how many years that is. 
Let’s just suffice to say that it has been a long damn time!! 
In our house, there are only two things that will bring everything to a dead stop and you will find all faces glued to the TV. NASCAR and football. Both of which I have enjoyed for the same amount of time.
Growing up in San Diego I became a Chargers fan and I when I did I did it full force. 
I can remember the year they lost in the playoffs to the Bengals. 
I, as well as thousands of fans, went to the stadium to wait for them to fly back. It poured the rain, we didn’t care. People started BBQs and a band showed up. There were TVs and people gave us a run down as to where the Chargers were and when they would be there. 
It was midnight by the time they arrived, but we didn’t care. 
Now I live in Western Washington and have developed a love for the Seahawks. 
I have sat in the rain, snow, freezing wind to watch them play. Yes, my friends, I guess die-hard could also mean a bit obsessed. 
Those years have passed. 
I enjoy the games in front of my TV on a comfy couch. 
No rain and I get instant replays!! 
But I have never lost my love for tailgating. 
I love to have friends over, cook up a bunch of grub and have a few cold ones, all while arguing over who is going to win and if that was a bad call or not.  
But football, fun, and great food always go hand in hand for me!
