Football Family Fun: A House Divided

Boy with a football #SnickersMinis #CBias

My family is a Football Family!! I am a die hard Cowboys fan (good times and bad) and my husband is a die hard Lions fan (good times and bad) so our household is always divided. I am also a University of Texas alumni and love my Longhorns (I have two tattoos to prove it and like to say that I actually DID bleed orange at least twice in my life!) and my husband is a Michigan Wolverines fan – again divided!!

Surgery with a football #SnickersMinis #CBias

From a very young age, my boy fit in with our Football Family. At 20 months he had to have surgery on his hand and the ONE toy he wanted to take in the operating room was hit precious football!

I  heart  football season!!

During football season, my family will all gather at my dad's house on Sunday (sometimes on Saturdays) to watch football and brag about our respective teams. My husband gets outvoted most days; however, because, well, where do you think I learned my faves?!! :) We always have a huge spread of food and just a fun family get-together.

Super Bowl is a totally different story!! My dad throws the largest party with a television in every room (and two outside) and the entire kitchen is full of food (and at least 3 grills outside). The furniture is rearranged for better viewing and friends drive from hours away to be there. He has a half acre lot behind his house that fills up like a parking lot full of cars, trucks, and usually at least one RV (gotta be friendly to those who are responsible and don't drink and drive). We are definitely a football family!!

    Thank goodness there’s only one football fan in our house. Funny thing is it’s me! Go Cowboys!!!

    I must say i live in a divided home also better yet an entire family against one. I am a die hard michigan fan and my family are a bunch of nut lovers :(. Hopefully someday they will get it right.

  3. Betsy Rubendall Barnes says:

    In our house, football rules! We stop everything when the Carolina Panthers are on and the Super Bowl is treated like a national holiday :)

  4. Laura Love says:

    We are also a house divided by football. My husband also went to UT (but no tattoos!), and loves his Longhorns, while I went to UCLA and love my Bruins. So football season is always fun and crazy.
    His mom has already bought our infant multiple UT outfits, which our baby wears when they visit (and only then…).
    I guess we’ll need to have snickers on hand for the next football game, candy is something everyone in the house can agree on.

  5. We are a house divided but in a friendly way. My husband is all about the Steelers and I am a huge Patriots fan also through the good and the bad. He is a PA boy and I am from RI. For the most part we are fine unless our teams are playing each other. Then we are pretty subdued about it all. I think we are still too much of a couple of newlyweds to trash talk each other. :) We both also really like eachother’s teams…just not as much as our own.

    I have a family who love Snickers. They now have a coupon for $2.00 off of one of these bags. We have a family divided as well. I love the Ohio State Buckeyes, while my fiance loves the Georgia Bulldogs. He also likes the Atlanta Falcons while I like the Cleveland Browns. It’s like that with baseball too. He likes the Yankees while I like the Indians.

  8. Hahaha! THis is awesome. I haven’t seen these snickers yet and need to pick up a bag (or two). Too bad hubby is allergic to peanuts. I may have to eat all of them on my own!
