Can you feel it in the air? It’s that time of year again when rabid fans from all corners of the country come together and celebrate their beloved sport of football. The time of year when Saturdays and Sundays become more than just a weekend, they become an event that is looked forward to all week. The time of year when weddings, to do lists, and non-essential tasks are scheduled around games. Whether you are a college fan, professional fan or both, it’s time to get ready to watch football in style!
Watching at Home
There’s nothing like watching a football game in the comfort of your own home. With today’s technological advances in HD television, watching football games at home has never been better. You never miss a play with the ability to pause and if you want to re-watch a play all you have to do is rewind the action.
The latest in high definition television these days is the 4D TV. The level of definition in these tvs is out of this world. You’ll be able to see every play in extreme detail. So much so that you might even be able to read the coach’s playbook.
Create an Atmosphere
If you are looking for a unique way to watch football at home, try tailgating from your yard. That’s right, you don’t have to go to the game in order to tailgate. An inexpensive canopy like this one can serve as home base for all your friends, food, and action. Try setting up a tv outside to watch the pregame then head inside for all the game time action.
What would a football game be without food. Sometimes I think it’s the food that is the main event and the football game that is the afterthought. Either way, you’ll want to treat your family and friends to some delicious snacks, appetizers, and main courses. Here are some ideas to help kick start your thinking when it comes to planning for the culinary delights.
Games Within the Game
So you came for a football game, but that doesn’t have to be the only game in town. Sometimes it’s fun to entertain your guests with some games leading up to the main event. Here are some fun ideas to keep everyone moving.
This is a classic game of bean bag toss played by millions every weekend. You can take the boards with you wherever you go making this a game to be played from anywhere.
Your Own Football Game
How about your own game of two hand touch? Nothing gets people in the mood for football quite like playing their own version of the pigskin classic.
You could always invite the guys or gals from your fantasy football league to come over and compare notes. This can get intense, especially when you’ve got players going head to head with your other fantasy football members.
Regardless of how you watch football this year, the time has come to sit back, relax and enjoy all the moments that this season will bring.
