    I am a big Tennessee fan ... In fact, I am watching the game on the TV as I read through the Board info. I have the game on mute and am listening Bob Kesling on the UT network. I love the Colts because Peyton Manning graduated from Tennessee, also love the Tennessee Titans ... hopeful that Randy Moss will behave and just play good football.

    I'm a big football fan. Growing up in Texas I didn't have much of a choice. Am now living in Lousiana. My favorite college team is Lousiana State University, listened to them play this afternoon while I cleaned house. Geaux Tigers!! My favorite pro team is the New Orleans Saints.

    Been a Cowboys fan for as long as I can remember, really not liking it right now, never was a Houston Oiler fan and not a Houston Texan fan either. Guess that makes me a rebel, since I live in Houston......

    I am a Viking Fan, through and through, excluding Randy Moss! What a dork! If anyone read about his tirade at Tinucci's restaurant,it just proves what a loser he really is! We eat there, they have wonderful food. As a matter of fact, Tinucci's offered to their customers the same buffet at the restaurant as they served the Vikings this past Sunday and if you bring in a Randy Moss jersey, you get a free buffet. The Randy Moss jersies (Viking design, of course) would be given to the Boys and Girls Clubs in Tennessee!!!!! We don't want him here anymore! Besides that, Tinucci's gave $500 to the Boys and Girls Club here in the Twin Cities! So, we will see how Harvin and Brett and the boys play today. We have have bad years and we have good years. This may be a bad year, but basically, the guys are good guys! I am embroidering a Christmas quilt, which I am sure is going to take a few years to get all embroidered, so I do that while I watch the game! GO VIKES! Edie

    Goooooooooooooo GIANTS!
    Love my Sunday football. Have been a Giants fan forever. Made a take 5 quilt w/giants fabric for my gs baby shower 2 years ago and my son was thrilled. One for him is on my list of things to do.

    If its a good game (not one with one team running over the other) I can watch, but mostly I catch the news and see the whole game in 5 minutes. Hubby watches, I sew.

    YES!!!
    I will say that I was a bit disappointed in some of the NFL teams. I was chairman of a fundraiser and wrote to several teams for something to auction off. They all wrote back and said no because we were not in their viewing area. HELLO - we live in Montana! We don't have a team here, so does that put Seattle, Denver, Vikings, Packers & Cowboys out of our area. Heck no - we watch them all! I am also a Dolphins fan & you can't get much farther away than that!

I learned to understand the game and I have been a fan ever since. Later, my husband thought it was really neat that I knew the game. Of course, as fate would have it, I ended up marrying a Pitt man, so every Saturday we had a war at our house!

    My dad's enthusiasm for pro football rubbed off on me and, needless to say, I always have been and still am the biggest, most avid Pittsburgh Steelers fan. I get very emotional about the Steelers and, even though I live alone now, I never miss a game on TV, and I holler and cheer and pound the furniture and jump up and down and curse and cry and just get SO excited - all by myself! As much as I love sewing and quilting, it all has to wait until after the game!
    Hey fellow "burger"!!! I absolutely love the Steelers!!!!
    I get dressed in Steeler gear and yell and scream and pound furniture too! Have been to a few games in my life and that is just so intense and wonderful. Pgh. has the greatest fans in the world!!

    I prefer college football! Purdue football, actually, although they have struggled for a few years now. There is nothing like watching them, especially when they are playing in Ross-Ade and I can see campus in the background...takes me right back to my college days! That said, unless I have handwork to do, I generally do not watch football on Sundays. I don't have TV in my sewing room anymore (we don't have satellite in there) so I find myself either listening to music or, watching DVDs. If I were to watch pro-football...it would be the Colts.

    Oh my gosh, you and I are alike with football!!! My hubby and 3 sons each have different teams; and the boys all played from 9 yrs. old through high school. I watch their games every Sunday and Monday nights...gives me something fun to talk with them about. Green Bay, Steelers, Dolphins, and Giants are the teams we cheer for in this house. I don't have a team, so just cheer for theirs. I missed the big Steelers/Dolphins a couple weekends ago because I was at my nieces baby shower. My oldest called me on my cell phone at half time to tell me how it was going. Some of the ladies laughed and the others were kind of disgusted hee,hee.

    Well, I am a great OSU (OHIO State) fan and sure glad we got the Big Ten channel on TV. We live in Tennessee and also really enjoy the Titans (Eddie George of Ohio State made me start watching the Titans).

    I like Tennessee and have been looking for a picture of the team back in 1952/53 and can't find any. Hmmm. Does that date me.

    Even though Canadians are supposedly hockey fans, I'm married to an American ex-pat and it's football in this house. Thank goodness!! Sundays are great, because football is on all day and I can sew in between running to watch the replays (and then staying 'cause I'm hooked). My DH is a Brett Favre fan. I'm less faithful.
    I've been to CFL and NHL games and football wins hands down every time. Live hockey is weird because they skate around aimlessly every time there's a commercial on TV. Football just plays on and lets the TV work around it.

    Suzi, I thought my daughter and I were the only ones! Believe it or not, my husband can take football or leave it; he just goes to the games because I love them. I'm a huge Georgia Bulldog fan (with quite a disappointing season going on right now). College football is my first love; but I watch NFL also. Like the Vikings (same bad season as my Bulldogs). Also the Colts and Broncos. I guess I have to keep up with the Falcons since I live in the Atlanta area.

    Go 9ers! Yes, I too watch football every Sunday. Some weeks that's ALL I do. The one thing I will give up quilting for is a 49ers game. Too bad Sunday Ticket got so expensive. They don't broadcast enough 49ers games here in Arizona. We're stuck with the Cardinals.

    Not me, not since the Eagles got rid of all our good quarterbacks. I am a NASCAR fan; have been since I was a kid. I knit while watching it.

By the way, i am an avid San Fransico49ers fan!
    I only like to watch my son play. Friday night lights. I will watch Peyton Manning & the Colts. I love him. He & my oldest Ds kinda look alike. I hate the Dallas Loser Cowboys. Haven't liked them since Tom Landry was fired. Texans are OK.

    Hi, I like football too, and watch with my husband when our favorite team is playing... "The Chicago Bears" Win or loose we stick with them, and this year isn't so good. We live in Wisconsin, so being a Bear fan isn't easy!!!

    Bears game is on - I watch when the announcers sound excited!

    Can't just sit and watch - too much to do around the house.

    Go CARDINALS! Never used to watch but the guys work so hard and carry off some great plays.

    Also watch the Notre Dame college ball games because grandchild goes there.
