The Girl I Wanted To Be

So I am not the biggest sports follower.
Allow admittedly, I do think it makes girls wayyyyy more attractive.
I always wanted to be that girl that knew who was drafted and in which round, who won the big game last night, and who rocked a fantasy league with the best of 'em.

But I'm just not.

I have actually grown to be less knowledgeable as I have gotten older.  Let me divulge.
Growing up I always had my dad and brother who would watch ESPN before they went off to work and school, respectively, so I had a vague idea of teams, players, etc.  When I left for college I was no longer forced privileged enough to have ESPN playing in the background of most day to day activities. 

This is not to say that I am sports illiterate now, I enjoy following teams, knowing what's going on, and watching games just like te rest of us. 
But I don't wait for football season like like little kids wait for Christmas.

When I was invited to join my boyfriend family at the niners game this weekend- I was totally excited about going, BUT I had no gear.

If I know anything about tailgating I know that no proper tail gater shows up at the tailgate dawning anything aside from team apparel. And when target let me down (for the first time in a long time) and didn't have the normal selection of local team gear. I was flat out of luck.

I wasn't saved by the bell, but I was saved by my boyfriends sister and her husband who decked me out with a shirt and sweatshirt so I wouldn't look like the outlier in the gold and red BBQ'ed and flag filled parking lot.

Here's some pictures from the Game. These were taken with my new toy (that I'm sure you all read about here).

And these were taken with my iPhone. 

 Don't I fit in???
Good news is you don't have be the biggest fan to enjoy the tail gate brews and BBQ, stadium food, and bright lights.

I now know whey men will always love Sunday Night Football!!!

  2. Aw it looks like you had a great time! I've always wanted to be the same way, but I'm just not. I do try though haha
