Francine In Retirement
Seeing Life Through Photography



I love football!  I attend my grandchildren’s high school games, my granddaughters college games, and watch my favorite NFL team, The Pittsburgh Steelers on TV (it’s hard to get tickets to their games).




Pitt Panthers

It’s playoff time in the NFL and even though my Steelers are not in the games, ( they are the only team with six Super Bowl trophies ) I am right there on my couch, during the weekends cheering the playoff teams on.


Six Super Bowl Trophies

As some of you may know that means two games on Saturday and two games on Sunday leading up to Super Bowl Sunday.  There is also pre-game shows, the football game itself, and then post-game shows.  A total of around  twenty-four hours sitting on the couch in front of the TV during the weekend.  Evidence of a true fan and couch potato.

Couch Potato

Now during the Super Bowl game there is more pre-game and post-game time involved.  All of which is exciting and somewhat physically and emotionally exhausting.  The price you pay as a true fan and couch potato.

Surrounding all this time on the couch and in front of the TV, I am well supplied with nourishment to sustain my energy level.  We have pizza, hot chicken wings, cheese and pepperoni trays, relish tray with dip, Italian hot sausage sandwiches, soft drinks and water.  

My weekends during football season, especially the playoff games, are spent in football heaven.

PS. Trying to win a trip to Australia with the Ellen DeGeneres Show.  Wish me luck.
