Say it Ain't So

Ok as some of you may know, I'm a HUGE and I mean HUGE football fan, but I'm a LOYAL fan which means I have only particular teams that I will cheer for and the rest are "the bad teams". It's pretty cut and dry..GOOD and BAD! :) Ok so it's football, I know it's "just a game", but it's a game I LOVE!

I will always cheer for my highschool team the "Wildcats". We weren't always good, although in the last I'd say 7-8 yrs they've been AMAZING...went to state and won state pretty well every yr (well going to state anyways and if they didn't win they've almost always been 2nd, not too shabby for a town of less than 5,000!) Anyways...my College of choice, Kansas States "WILDCATS" (yes I'm a wildcat through and through). I bleed purple when watching and listening to the games and my children are taught EARLY who to cheer for!(YES seriously! ROFL). NFL. I'm a Kansas City's Chiefs Fan (bleeding Red on Sunday's!) Ok so you get the drift, I'm a Kansas girl and no matter where I live, no matter how old I become I will ALWAYS be a Wildcats and Chiefs fan.

Sadly....I JUST found out that our beloved K-State Bill Synder (head coach) is retiring after being with us for 17 years. He brought us from the laughing stock of College football to one of the Powerhouses of college football teams. The last 2 season's I'm not really sure what's happened, we haven't been at our  best...but Bill Synder is still a respected and honored man when walking the beautiful campus in Manhattan, KS. As a Wildcat Fan I'll miss this man who has a gentleness about him. A man who on my first day of classes at that beautiful campus showed that lost Freshman where her Psych class was, (he was a very nice man to a girl who was looking at this HUGE campus thinking I'd never find my class and was about in tears!). Yesterday was Bill Snyder's last time ever coaching our Wildcats in a 36-28 WIN over Missiouri. Thank's Bill for the GREAT years!

Bill Snyder was a remarkable success at Kansas State, winning 135 games and playing in 11 straight bowl games.

It's tough to lose a good coach. I'm a football fan too. It's crazy during football season at our house. My son and I like the Seattle Seahawks and Patriots, my hubby likes the Rams, daughter likes Kansas City Chiefs, the rest like The Raiders and The Cowboys.

I totally love football too!  Between coaching my cheerleaders and carting my boys to flag football games and practices, now I'm living it too!  I love the Cleveland Browns of course, well... being I'm from Ohio and all! Hugs,

I'm glad you enjoy your football.  I am not a huge fan.  Neither is my husband which is nice.  Do they play football in Germany?  Do they show American games?  What's the weather like in Germany right now?  Just curious.
