I’ll admit it, I’m a Ravens fan. I realize this makes me an outsider in Redskins territory, but I’m not from here originally.
From a suburb of Baltimore, everyone seems to “bleed purple” there, and it’s rubbed off on me.
I’m also, admittedly, a fair-weather fan. Last season was a great season to be a fair-weather fan, seeing as we won the Super Bowl. So while I don’t follow player statistics or even know when games are going to come on, I do enjoy some of the things that football season represents.
Football means fall, and tailgating, hot beverages, chips and dip, and wearing sweatshirts. Football is a nice distraction from the painful cold of January. It’s a good excuse to get out of the house to watch the game, or to invite people over for a watch party.
I can’t say that men tackling each other and women wearing next to nothing jumping around with pom poms is particularly exciting to me, but I do appreciate the fact that this activity brings people together from the area. And when people come together for football games there is almost always some delicious food to be had. In the same way we have a tendency to support the teams that hail from our hometowns, I’d like to suggest that you support those farmers and artisans in your area that grow and create things in your home state.
Our farmer’s market has everything you need to grill delicious meats and veggies, locally roasted coffee beans, homemade treats, and more! Plan to support your team and your community by shopping the Farmer’s Market this football season. What’s your favorite thing to eat during a game? Comment on this post and let us know!
