But I guess in Football, every time someone fell or was brutally jumped or tackled by 7 of the biggest guys, it's a signal for fans to stand up and cheer! And I get it, I do! Because seriously - getting trampled on and surviving it really needs a round of applause.
Speaking of getting hurt, a fight almost broke loose in our aisle, because apparently you can't cheer for your team without offending the fans of the opposing team. It's like an unspoken rule. I mean, come on guys, whatever happened to friendly competition?
I remember contemplating what I was going to wear to the game (duh! I'm a girl). At first I was going to wear the San Diego colors because, well I live in San Diego, but I also lived in and love San Francisco, so I was undecided, but mostly because if I wear the wrong color, I might get jumped in the parking lot after the game...it's that serious! I'm serious. I've heard horror stories about people getting attacked. So it doesn't help that when I think of a football game, I automatically think of the fights that's bound to happen.

|These violent acts definitely get an Uncool stamp!|
I think I paid more attention to the background noise than I did the game. There was just so much going on. I think I've come to the conclusion that football games are just not for me. Now if it was a Basketball game, that would be a different topic! I love basketball and if you were sitting next to me at a game, you would probably be absolutely annoyed, because I tend to be vocal and I'm probably not the most pleasant person to sit next to. People would be like, "Ley, your such an innocent looking girl, I can't believe the words that are coming out of your mouth!" and I would be like, "If want me to be quiet, then sit next to me at a football game." I'm joking...it wasn't that bad. I did get to eat $6.00 Cracker Jacks.
I hope you enjoyed my post. Feel free to share your thoughts and leave a comment.
Here are some pictures from the game:
