So...Football season is on!!! This Thursday marks the season opener and what better way to open the season than to watch my Titans beat down the Steelers?!?!
If you can't tell by now, my favorite NFL team is the Tennessee Titans! I love them and I always will!

A little history for ya: I learned what I know about football by being the mascot at Union High School my senior year. I was on the sidelines for every game that year and I got hooked!
***In other news...I just got back from singing at my high school's opening game this season (WE WON!). Details very soon! :-)***

Since high school, I have been a huge fan of the game. I sometimes have weird reasons for picking which teams I like and don't like though.

Example 1: While in high school, my favorite color was forest green, so I liked the Packers, plus Brett Favre is cute. My favorite color is now black and I am NOT a Raiders fan, so that one's out.

Example 2: I once watched an interview with the Cowboys and they came across so cocky that I refused to be a fan. (After last season, this rule goes for the Steelers too!) Not that they didn't have reason to be. My second reason for not being a fan was that they were always beating teams I really liked. Emmitt Smith almost won me over when he was on Dancing With the Stars, but I attributed his sweet personality to the fact that he had gotten far away from him Cowboy ties. Hehehe...

Example 3: I love underdogs and Shayne Graham...therefore I like the Bengals. Have you guys seen the HBO show Hard Knocks: Training Camp? I think it's a brilliant show. It shows the training process of the Bengals after having a really rough season last year. I have been hooked. It's a crazy game and an even crazier training process. I will be riveted to their season just because I want to see these players turn things around. Plus OchoCinco is hilarious...a little bit off...but hilarious!

Example 4: The only truly normal reasons I have for loving a team...they're amazing and they represent home to me. That's my Titans!!! I'm so excited about our new roster and I can't wait to make it to the Super Bowl this season. It's on, y'all and I'm happy about it!

Now, that being said, I have a little wager for ya. On the Melinda's Backups site, there is a football pool for a good cause. Here's the deal...sign up for the football pool, make a small donation and not only do you get to TRY (notice I said TRY) to beat me in the pool, but you are also a part of creating a music scholarship to Belmont University for a deserving student. Now, IF (notice I said IF) you win, you will also get a call from me, but don't plan on winning. I plan on beating all of you this season. Please sign up because I want to have major bragging rights, so that means I need to beat a lot of people. So, who's in???

*Try to get in by Thursday so you don't miss the 1st game. But if you're late, I think they may throw out the lowest week, so you just have to bring it in the coming weeks. :-)

Wassup, Doolittle? Emmit had the sweet disposition while still with the Cowboys. It didn't just start when he was on Dancing with the Stars. He could look at the defensive line with a smile on his face and run right through them. Remember those days?

New stadium now. God got tired of peeking through the side windows at his team, so they added a retractable ceiling. :)

Still love ya, though! I did vote for you!
