Hi,

I'd really like to get into football and get excited about it- it's a good way to meet people as well as do fun things with others.

What's the best way to go about it without turning into an ESPN zombie? lol.

I don't usually care much about the players or coaches so much as the teams overall.

Watch it. Read about it. Keep up with it.

... I find it hard to keep up with the NFL-- or maybe I just don't care about it. But I follow college football religiously.

haha, thanks. I figured I'd just jump right in and keep track of when and where my teams are playing so that I can try to get some game time in on the tube.

I'm currently watching the Chargers play and I'm a little disappointed in their defense.

Play fantasy football. You will be screaming or cheering at every game. I was at my cousins this week watching the game and i had some guys on the patriots on my fantasy football team. I started going WOOOOH! when welker scored a touchdown. My cousins dog freaked out and attacked me. Lucky for me he is a little miniature dog and not a pitbull.

I've never played fantasy football, but I can see how that should work to get you interested and on top of the game.

A very simply way is to get into a pool. A $1 pool will work. Or if you don't know of a pool to get into, simply get online and try to "Beat the Insiders". It's free and easy. INFL - Showtime Sports - Beat the Insiders

kindof impossible without becoming an ESPN zombie, or any sports show. You usually have to watch sports shows of some kind haha. When your at the games, you have to "know" what your talking about or you will look like a loser. Not all people will see it that way but most will. lol.

Gotta love football.
