Went to My First Pro Football Game, Watched Saints Beat Bucs 38-7

Fan in the background got in the way!

I went to my first professional football game today. (Yes, insert “What?!” reaction here.) Growing up, I never went to football games. My dad wasn’t much into sports other than Nascar, so going to games was never something we did together. In fact, it wasn’t until college that I went to my first pro baseball game at Fenway. I’ve never even been to a college football game because my college didn’t have football. Apparently, I missed out.

During today’s Saints vs. Bucs game, I ended up watching most of the plays on the jumbotron because we had end zone seats. I liked being just a few yards away from the action on the field, though, and feeling the energy of the fans. Who dat!

The Saints beat the Buccaneers 38 to 7, so they’re now undefeated 10-0. You have to admit — that’s pretty remarkable, regardless of whether or not you’re a Saints fan.
