COLLEGE FOOTBALL IS BACK!

2013 Ohio State Spring Game

It’s no secret, especially if you follow me on Twitter, that I am a huge college football fan. Gigantic. So much so, that my new followers numbers trail off after football season ends, and start picking up again, once it returns. I’m not mad. I think I’m far more interesting during football season. And apparently, the Internet agrees!

As I type this, the goodness that is college football, is on my TV. I couldn’t be happier! I don’t even care that I’m watching Minnesota football. I don’t care whose team is playing tonight. I just want to see as much of it as possible!

My team, THE Ohio State Buckeyes, get things started on Saturday, and I will be there! I don’t really care which games I attend. I just want to be in that stadium, w/ 105,000 of my closest friends, as often as possible. I love, love, love being able to go to the opener. It’s like our long, national nightmare (of no football) is over, and we are all being cured by the mighty hand of the Lord together. Was that overboard? Whatever. I don’t care. FOOTBALL’S BACK!

I Love Johnny Football!

No, he doesn’t play for my school, and yes, he sometimes makes questionable decisions/comments. But seriously, how fun is Johnny Football?! That dude looks like he’s living his life to the fullest and having as much fun as is humanly possible along the way. I know it’s probably not a popular opinion to have, but it’s mine and I’m not ashamed of it!

We had the “Tebow Years” of college football (and yes, I like him too), but the Johnny Football years are going to be sooooo much more entertaining, for pretty much the completely opposite reason. The CBS/SEC shills spent The Tebow Years telling all of us how we would want our daughters to bring home a guy like Timmy. In this era, they’ll probably start telling us that Johnny is the kind of guy we want to party with. At least that’s how I view him. And no, there’s no way I’d be able to keep up!

But I like him, douchebag or not. I don’t need entertainers/athletes/singers etc. to be saints in order to like them. I’ve always been able to separate their exploits from their careers. I’m also not looking for a role model. Mine are in my immediate family; not complete strangers. I’m just looking for ENTERTAINMENT, and Johnny Manziel provides an abundance. He’s a treat to watch on the football field, and even more amusing off of it!

For example, check out this sweet video of him with the Dude Perfect guys.

So, I say, leave Johnny alone and let him continue to entertain me, dammit! I bought all this popcorn, and he’s the perfect reality show to eat while watching!

FOOTBALL IS BACK!

Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a massive College Football fan. My obsession is probably unhealthy, but we all are probably a part of some type of fandom; be it sports, movies, books, TV shows, musicians etc. I’m so into my Ohio State Buckeyes that I rearrange several parts of my life so that I never miss a thing. Case in point: I redo my workout schedule so that I don’t have anything set for Saturdays. Yes, I’m that serious.

Well, college football came back into my life today and I couldn’t be happier! Couple that with the fact that I will be going to the 2012 Ohio State season opener Saturday and I can barely contain my excitement. (I don’t expect to get any sleep tomorrow night) I will sit and watch any college football game that comes on TV, no matter the team. There’s no other sport where I do that. March Madness doesn’t count. That’s just 2 weeks. I mean, as I write this entry, I’m watching BYU and Washington State. I care not for either of those teams!

And although I’m obsessed with the College game, the same can’t be said for pro ball. I follow exciting players and all former Buckeyes, but it’s not the same to me. Every year, I’m tempted by Fantasy Football and the betting scene, but haven’t been able to take that next step. I’ve seen how my friends/family are, when it comes to Fantasy Football, and I don’t need another obsession like that to distract me from the one I already have!

And I probably would give betting a go (the legal way), but there’s so much to learn! It’s been recommended I take a look at http://www.nflbetting.org, but I’ma scurred. It’s a lot to absorb and I’m not much of a gambler. We’ll see, though!

But for now: ZOMG, IT’S COLLEGE FOOTBALL SEASON! GO BUCKS!
