Yep that is right, I love football. Namely my San Francisco 49ers. As mentioned in an other thread I love baseball more…GO Giants! But hey, aside from some fun fall hiking and some snowshoe trips, I love a good sunday of football. Especially when my Niners are 3-1 (and could easlily be 4-0!). I know Rick Horne is a Packers fan.
Anyone else?????Oct 2, 2011 at 3:03 pm #1785853

It pains me to say it, but I'm a fan of the 0-4 Rams. Just got home from another loser. They were close this time, but close still doesn't show up in the win column.
The 'Niners are 3-1? Really? How could that possibly happen?Oct 2, 2011 at 3:21 pm #1785854
Auburn Tigers fan here first….then Falcons. Love love football. Esp SEC football.
NFL network's REDZONE channel makes Sunday afternoons great.
Ken…I played little league with yalls pitcher Matt Cain….he's a beast.Oct 2, 2011 at 3:32 pm #1785857
Ken, with the schedule that The Rams have had for the first four games it seemed like the NFL wanted to play a cruel hoax on them or something….That said, they improved quite a bit last year and I am a little bit stunned to see them not putting up much of a fight. Still early though!
As for the Niners, they beat The Eagles today 24-23. AND they almost beat The Cowboys a few weeks ago. Lovin it right now!Oct 2, 2011 at 5:01 pm #1785873

Got to love those Packers and Badgers.
Also, don't want to forget the Brewers. Good year for Wisconsin teams.Oct 2, 2011 at 7:01 pm #1785927
Yep, this is a good year so far! Just imagine if the Packers, Brewers, and Badgers all take home their respective championships!
Though, the Packers better tighten up their defense…Oct 2, 2011 at 8:51 pm #1785967
niners and packers! looking good so far.Oct 2, 2011 at 10:11 pm #1785990

One of my favorite places on earth in the winter is the Randolph Mountain Club cabins on the side of Mt. Adams, second highest mountain in the northeast. Its a 3000 foot climb from the base to the cabins. One year I was up there at unheated Crag Camp during the Superbowl–the Pats were not there(in the Superbowl) so neither was I. As I sat there alone with the howling wind, suddenly the door burst open with a loud roar. I couldn't believe it. A group of crazies had lugged up a small TV, heavy batteries, a full-sized antenna collapsed, and two cases of beer, all with snowshoes and crampons the entire way. The next day as a blizzard blew in, we all watched the game. And those guys were blessed–they shared their beer with the stranger. Those guys loved their hiking and loved them some football!Oct 3, 2011 at 6:15 pm #1786288
O.K. 49ers beat the Eagles??!!?? Fine, but former Cal Bear Aaron Rogers is unconscious.
Bring pepper spray if you play Green Bay!Oct 3, 2011 at 6:30 pm #1786292
Green Bay are the big boys…and just think, the Niners passed on Rogers….groanOct 3, 2011 at 8:28 pm #1786325

I have always watched football but I never really had a team, so I figured I would arbitrarily pick one (it's much harder than you think). You can't really go for the pats or the packers since it's just too easy and you're a bandwagon fan, so I figured since I love the San Francisco Giants (not to be confused with the dreadful NY Giants) I might as well give the 49ers a chance. I've also found that having a fantasy football team enhances my football knowledge greatly. I've been playing fantasy baseball for a while now and I can name off completely useless stats about random people, but who cares, I love it.
By the way…. do any of you guys do fantasy baseball/football/hockey? We should definitely get a league going either this year if it's not too late or next seasons for the respective sports. Who knows.
Finally, Aaron Rodgers was a god this past sunday, and i was extremely thankful to have him on my fantasy team.Oct 9, 2011 at 9:25 pm #1788659
Packers pull another out and Brewers win. Woohoo!Oct 10, 2011 at 5:00 pm #1788923
49ers are now 4-1
Is this the return of one of the premier football franchises?Oct 16, 2011 at 2:22 pm #1791265
And we keep on winning.
Detroit loses its first against the 'Niners.Oct 16, 2011 at 2:29 pm #1791268
Niners are 5-1 who would thunk that!Oct 16, 2011 at 2:43 pm #1791275
packers and niners keep rolling!Oct 16, 2011 at 2:52 pm #1791282

I need a cuben fiber football with spectra lacing. Dyed, if possible. In the interests of space and weight, I think a junior size will work best, perhaps with Nike's "spiraltech" shape to it.
Come to think of it, an ultralight football will float rather than fly. I'm going old school! Ha ha! My ten year old is perfectly happy to add his football to his pack if we can toss it around a high alpine lake.Oct 23, 2011 at 5:25 pm #1794114

Not sure if you guys have heard of rugby? : )
World Cup Final last night,
New Zealand beat France, one up for the conservation movement ; )

Every sport is an offshot of fighting, gladiator sport(mma/ufc). What i mean is france scores on germany in the world cup and screams at the goalie he just scored on. It is a primal urge, he really wants to kick his butt. But hes too scared to do so, every sport is like this. Its primal urges expressed in a way nobody gets hurt. Thats why i prefer the real thing instead. I dont like any sport except mma, boxing and kickboxing.Oct 23, 2011 at 7:03 pm #1794151
