Like, I actually watched the game and paid attention for the first time ever! No sports blindness! I even took notes and asked so, so many questions so I could understand. What can I say? I was that kid in class who always raised my hand. I like to understand things. Here are some thoughts, feelings and concerns from my very first football game. Keep reading »
