Last weekend I went to Madison, Wisconsin for a Badger Football game. I briefly visited Madison in June when traveling to Milwaukee, and that first brief visit didn’t make me fall in love with the town, but last weekend was definitely a redemption!
We had a rain-free pre-game and first quarter, but after that it was rainy and chilly. Today I’m off to the Vikings game, and grateful that the new stadium has a roof.
Since I’ve been out of town or busy the last two Sundays, that means I haven’t had my usual church and grandparent time. But I thankfully have been able to stop by their house and visit. I know I am lucky to be able to have this time together.
Football can be a tradition for families, but I think each family’s version of the tradition is different. Sometimes it is 100% about the athletes on the field, sometimes the atmosphere of the stadium, or the food enjoyed while watching, but it can also be just the people you are with, no matter who is playing, what is being served, or what the weather is like.
What is your favorite part of football? Does your family have a different sports tradition?
