Thankful Thursday: Football

Can I get a "Go Falcons! Rise up!"? No?

Oh come on. We have a bandwagon. It feels pretty great to have a bandwagon. Are you on the bandwagon?
It's definitely an interesting phenomenon to have the Falcons in the Super Bowl and for them to be doing so well. I actually feel like I need to defend myself in any and all conversations like "I'm from Atlanta. I've been a Falcons fan since birth." Living outside of Falcons country right now is difficult!

Matty Ice is certainly on fire but this team is so much more than that. And sure I could list some other super stars (on BOTH sides of the ball) like Julio, Sanu, Freeman, Vic Beasley, Keanu Neal, the list could go on. But, to be honest, I admire how much this team is a team. A brotherhood. They all work well together. They all build each other up. Yeah there are some super stars but they don't think of themselves that way. And honestly, that's what makes me the most proud of my Dirty Birds.
I know that sounds cheesy and cliche, but I'm serious. You're probably rolling your eyes at the last sentence of that last paragraph. "Oh come on. Charlene. You're more proud of them for winning than for building each other up. Just admit it." Yes, I would be a little upset if they lost. And yes I am proud of them for making it this far. But I really am so impressed with their attitudes. And I think that is a big factor for why they've made it this far.

So if you're not already on the Falcons' bandwagon, I just gave you one more reason to be. You can add that reason to the fact that they are certainly the under dogs. They've only ever been to one Super Bowl (the Patriots have been to 8). Atlanta fans need this win. And, simply because they're playing the Patriots.

Side note: if you didn't click that link up there for "Atlanta fans need this win," you should. We really need this.
So what does all this have to do with being thankful? Well, let me tell you.

I love football. I love everything about it. I love watching and getting into it. I love the competition and rooting for my teams. I love that it can bring people together. It can unite a city.

I love that it's something Pearson and I have in common. We can talk about it and watch it together and get excited about it.

And I am thankful for all of these things. And I am thankful the Falcons are going to the Super Bowl this year because after my 2016, I need this.
