I was raised a Husky. Brandon has just literally always rooted for the Dawgs since he was a tot. I suppose a lot of it has to do with coming from generations of Western Washingtonians. Typically the Eastern side of the state roots for our rival,
Washington State University. With the exception of ONE cousin on my mom's side who went to our rival school, my family are all Dawg fans. The University of Washington is all Brandon and I know. Neither of us have attended UW, yet. I will attend there in a few years if I actually decide to become a teacher.
Hubbs is pretty hardcore. For his birthday last month, I got him a set of highly sought after tickets and so did his parents. He's so excited to enjoy a couple of games from Husky Stadium because last year we worked too much on Saturdays and he didn't get to go at all!
In true Seattle style, the stadium is right by the shores of Lake Washington! Beautiful!
While I like sports and I like football... I certainly don't get all worked up about it. I do understand Brandon's viewpoint that college is so much more exciting to him than the NFL. I enjoy that the game isn't about million dollar contracts and brand new stadiums and is more about the game and the kids playing. But to let the outcome of a football game ruin my day... or even my week? Not going to happen! ;)
Brandon says he's nervous for the game today. We'll see how it turns out! As for us and our home? We will serve the DAWGS! Purple & Gold baby!
Who are YOU Rootin' for and why?
