My favorite day of the whole year is tomorrow! I know this sounds bad because I love my summers, but I count down the Saturdays to get to the first day of football season.
For those of you that know me well, know I am a die-hard Clemson fan and that I am obsessed with college football but I also love my Redskins. (Even though they are often disappointing!) My husband would say I’m a little crazy when it comes to my Tigers, between jumping on the couch and screaming at the t.v. I’ve seemed to even rub off on my 3-year old daughter who screams along with me and throws her arms in the air for every touchdown. I think my hubby may even dread this time of year, because quite often football leaves me in a bad mood with anxiety-ridden chest pains! 🙂
But, no one does college football better than the south! (a place I hold dear to my heart) Ladies are dressed to the nine’s in their pearls and heels, guys in their seer-sucker and bow ties, the best teams, and the biggest tailgating parties. If you’ve never been to a southern football game before, definitely add it to your bucket list-so you don’t miss out!
If you’re looking to party, this is the place to be…trucks, campers, and U-hauls loaded down with flat screens tvs, grills, smokers, and kegs. You can enjoy bourbon sweet tea cocktails or array of fest beers and pumpkin ales! Hop from tailgate to tailgate indulging on lobsters, low-country boils, fried turkey, and BBQ ribs; just to name a few.
Waiting for the game to start? Spend time playing corn hole or ladder golf. Add a little Johnny Cash or Zac Brown Band and there’s no better way to spend a fall Saturday or Sunday afternoon than with friends and family at a football tailgate!
So here’s to a long Labor Day weekend, fall, football, the best Saturday of the year, having fun, and enjoying some down time!
