    ANOTHER AWESOME ROUNDUP! I don’t come from a footbally family, so whenever I see anything related to football (anything), I think of Adam Sandler’s HIT MOVIE (jk) The Waterboy.

  19. Love these ideas! We do “Football Sundays” all season long. We ALWAYS make football food. Every.Single.Sunday.

I need some new ideas for this year’s season!
