Here is Brooks’ weekly blog…
This evening, August 5th, 2021, the NFL season gets back underway with the first game of the year. The Pittsburgh Steelers are taking on the Dallas Cowboys in Canton, Ohio at the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The game kicks off at 7pm on Fox.
Now, I am from Cleveland, Oh where we were raised to despise the Steelers. As far as Dallas goes, I think if you weren’t raised in Dallas you were raised to hate them as well. Even though I can’t stand neither one of these teams, I will be front and center watching the kickoff this evening.
Although, this may be a preseason game, the results and stats don’t matter but it’s still football. Guys putting on their gear, calling plays, making tackles and catches, it doesn’t get much better than that.
The team I am waiting to watch are my Cleveland Browns. Ever since I can remember the Browns have been terrible but somehow, last year they made everyone believe they are the team to watch out for in the NFL.
By far football is my favorite sport to watch and play although it always wasn’t. I grew playing baseball and soccer. I played some flag-football here and there but avoided full contact for the longest time. Not because I was scared, I just didn’t want to play. Then I was entering 8th grade and I said, let’s give this a try. I really enjoyed it and went on to play in high school. Ever since then, football ahs always been apart of my life.
Who is your favorite football team? If football isn’t your sport, what is? And your favorite team in that sport?
