Friday's Fancies: Fall Football Season

I couldn’t be more excited about today’s Friday’s Fancies theme: FOOTBALL.

That might actually be misleading – if you’re thinking NFL, we’re not on the same page. Truth be told, I couldn’t really care less about NFL football; I have lived in Massachusetts for almost my entire life and I have developed a pretty mild dislike for the “beloved” Pats.

BUT, I do love me some college football – Notre Dame football, to be exact. And no, I am not a Fighting Irish fan just because I’m Irish (even though I am…); my parents met, fell in love, and married at ND – not to mention that my uncle also went there and I have been to at least 10 fall tailgates in lovely old South Bend.

There’s nothing more beautiful and quintessentially fall than sipping a cold beer with mittens on a brisk fall morning and being a part of that absolutely awe-inspiring school spirit…not to mention the gorgeous backdrop of maple leaves catching the color of fire and a bright gold dome.

friday's fancies - ND style

Tailgate essentials: tall, flat boots (with wool socks, of course), sunnies to help see the game, a hot latte, blanket and a koozie (monogrammed!) for your beer to keep warm (and your beer cold!).

Do you love football in the fall? What are your game day essentials?
