I dare say that I'm more into it than some guys although I may not know all the intricacies of the game. I am proud to say I know enough to enjoy the game! Obviously I cheer for the Gators first but I also watch other SEC (South Eastern Conference) teams play.
I'm watching the game now and we are not doing too well against a scruffy team (sorry Miami of Ohio). Being the positive person I am, I'm not too worried. It's the first game of the season with a fairly young team, no Tebow and A LOT of pressure. I'm hopeful that we will improve by the time we play our first "real game" with another SEC team--Tennessee on September 18. We play USF before then and that does worry me a tad.
I've mentioned that my house is fairly quiet with just the two of us but NOT during football season. I know my neighbors did not miss my yelling, screaming and cheering from last season. Whether with a group or by myself, my reaction is the same. I just get into it. I think I will try to dedicate some Saturdays to discuss Gator football on my blog because it means so much to me.
I have not always been like this you know. When I was in Gainesville for college for 4 years--I occasionally would keep up with the games but not much. It was when I went to grad school at a rival university that I got into it. I went to my first real game in grad school and it was awesome. I was hooked since then. It didn't help that we were kicking booty too.
Anyway, I'll write more at a later time because I want to focus on the game. I welcome any comments, even opposition--just keep it clean. Also, feel free to comment about your favorite team. I'll also likely watch the Broncos and the Vikings because two of my favorite Gator alumni are on these teams.
