Football Traditions

By Lexi Myer

Friday night lights. Saturday afternoon college games. Monday Night Football. This time of year is surrounded with football.

Like a lot of Midwestern families, Sunday in my house growing up was for church and football. My parents were very serious about their Kansas City Chiefs fandom. In fact, there was a rule in my house that if you didn’t watch the game, you had to do chores. This commitment to a team my parents love so dearly passed on to a couple of my siblings, but much to my parent’s dismay, football never really stuck with me.

What did stick with me was the warm feeling that you got from a group of people gathering together to cheer together. I love the loud cheers, cool wind blowing through the windows, and excitement that fills a room with a victory. I love the cool apple cider, the hot bowl of chili, and the gooey plate of nachos all waiting in the kitchen. In my family, football wasn’t just a game, it was time spent together as a family. It was memories that were made for me and my three siblings.

We would love to hear about some of your favorite football traditions! Please comment below so we can see them.
