I love football! I remember when I was younger my dad would open up the newspaper and call out the teams playing that Sunday and we would make our picks of who was going to win. I normally lost, but I would get so excited when one of my ‘teams’ won.
I remember when Jacksonville became a team. I was about 6. I liked them because they were new.
I remember when the Cowboys played the Buffalo Bills in the Super Bowl. My mom said that the Bills were going to win and I just had to disagree. I knew really nothing about football or either team. But at that age I generally liked to pick teams that other people said were going to lose. The Cowboys won and for years I would never cheer for the Bills to win.
I remember when the Texans became a team.
I remember watching the Detroit Lions on TV after Thanksgiving.
I remember when Peyton Manning came to the Colts.
Football and I have a long history. Now you can find me playing Fantasy Football each week, watching all of the games. Sundays we watch football. My son and I make our picks, just like my Dad and I used to do. We tailgate. We yell at the TV. We cheer. And sometimes, we smack our forehead and say “Oh no….”
I love cheering for the home team. (And it’s really cool because one of my old high school friends is actually a starter for them now!) In Indiana, it’s all about the Colts. We bleed blue! We just know that we are going to make it to the play offs this year! Heck, even our back up quarterback is killing it out there! :) That means gearing up for football parties!
The NFL Shop is a go to place! With SO many different things to choose from it’s possible to literally be decked out from head to toe!
It’s a little chilly in Indy so we went for a few must have basics. A long sleeve Colts shirt and paired it with a totally cool Colts scarf and gloves. You have to be able to wear your team under and over your coat you know. ;)
I had a hard time choosing what pieces to buy. I honestly want them all. And the NFL Shop has it all! Jeans, yoga pants, socks, shoes, shirts, jackets, vests, handbags, jewelry, hats….the list goes on and on! Here are a few more Colts looks I put together for you!
How fun are these to show your support for your favorite team? The NFL Shop makes it so easy to show your team pride and to keep warm all winter long! If you are a fan girl like I am, the NFL Shop is your one and only stop for all things football!
What are your fan girl must haves? Don’t forget to pin!
