    Where are all the Football Fan Quilters? It's quiet out there!

    I know that some of us love football and are going to watch today. Who are you pulling for?

    I am pulling for Seahawks.... DH is pulling for Patriots...

    (just because we can't pull for the Packers )

    It's hard for me to pull for one or the other - but my husband was born and raised in Seattle, I grew up in WA but that was before the Seahawks - my parents didn't route for them either - but I decided to pull for them this year and when we were in Vegas last week I put $20.00 on them to win. Figured it would make the game a bit more interesting.

    Went to the grocery store for a few items. Forgot about the football game. I wanted to leave and forget about the crowd but few things were needed as DH insisted We will not be watching the game. Just not into all the hoopla. Would rather watch a good movie.

    I do not follow football too closely, but am hoping for the Patriots because I was born 13 miles from where they play.

    Wow! I did not think they would be able to pull it off. I wish my Bruins could do as well in their hockey games.

    Not so much of a win for NE as it was a loss for Seattle.

    ​I am not a big sports fan but that game certainly had some weird moments.

    What a day. Played touch football pre-game then a party during the game. Good food with family. Sometimes it's good to move around, get some exercise , and watch a good game. My team won! Go Pats! Boston Strong!
    now back to sitting on my duff quilting. Lol

    I don't have a sport bone in my body. DH asked me which team I was for I said the Patriots because I like the name. LOL. I watched the opening ceremony but that was all.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.

    Especially the ending. I am a die hard Seahawk fan...I worked with one of the people who helped name the team!! They had a contest and about 3 (maybe 5) people suggested 'Seahawks.' They won box seats for some years...how cool is that?

    I love football & am so sad when the season is over. It is the main reason I have a tv in my sewing room! After watching the Kitten Bowl we settled in it cheer for the Patriots! I lived in CT twice & my son who was born there, is a rabid fan.

Who thought that was a good idea?

    I wanted to watch the halftime show but lost track of time and missed it. That's the only thing that interests me and sometimes, not that.

    I'm not into sports but we do watch the Superbowl almost every year just because it's a good excuse to hang out with our friends and drink beer and eat potato chips. And of all sports, I like football best - it's the only one I can stand to watch at all, really.

    I don't follow either of these teams (wasn't even sure who was IN the Superbowl until the day before), but since my VP is a Seahawks fan I had to root AGAINST them, just so I can give him a hard time later today!

    It was a pretty good game! I like the close games, it's no fun when there's a 40-point spread. Some pretty good plays, and one really dumb decision, LOL.

    We are Packer Fans, and we lost to the Sea Hawk`s and lost our chance to play in the Super bowl! I wanted the Seattle to win so at least we could says we lost to the Super Bowl winners. Personally I like the game, it was very well played. We just felt the coaches lost the game for them on the last play. We knew only one team could win!

    I haven't been watching football but my neighbor did with others from the complex. All the players I use to love to watch have retired.
