For me, waking up on football Sunday is equivalent to a kid waking up on Christmas morning. Football has always been my favorite sport and a pretty big part of my life. I was Born in San Diego, CA but bred in Charlotte, NC, which is how I developed my love for both the Chargers and the Panthers. My dad has always been a huge Charger fan, so I was born into the fanbase. My family also quickly adopted the Panthers as a second team after settling in Charlotte. The older I got, I learned more and more about football, and I was hooked. My love for football was taken to a whole new level in 2008 when I started regularly attending Panther games with my boyfriend. Since that time, I have very rarely missed a home game and I have even traveled to several away games!
My passion for football developed even further when I started partaking in fantasy football. For the first couple of years that I played, I was a participant in several leagues. Now, I am the commissioner of a league with some of my closest friends! I love researching the best starts and matchups of the week and watching the waiver wire. The competitive group text banter is a pretty fun perk, too.
For me, nothing beats the excitement being a fan on gameday. I love how football brings everyone together, no matter our differences, and unites us in a common interest. I love the thrill of a victory but have also experienced my fair share of agony in defeat. No matter what, I am loyal to both of my teams and keep coming back for more. Football is not just a game, it is a lifestyle! I can’t wait to see what this season has in store for the Chargers and the Panthers!
