We’re finally back into the groove of football season, which makes me think about how I first got into football. I became a fan at my high school games, soaking up the Friday Night Lights that Texas does best. In college, I moved on to following the antics of the Big 10. Now that I’m an adult, it’s about time I settled down with an NFL team.
It’s so interesting to hear about how different people first got interested in the game. So many of us really came for the vibes: the energy of a football game, especially an NFL game, is so distinct from any other sporting event. I have friends who got into football through the grind of their fantasy leagues. And, of course, some grew up playing the game. However you fell in love with the old pigskin, you’ll enjoy the following NFL memes.
