    My husband and my son watch foot ball at home, they really enjoy it by shouting and seaming. I really don’t watch that much. But when someone is with me then I also get excitement and watch it sometimes. When I went to Chicago my brother-in-law arranged dinner +small party and we enjoyed watching the game. Myself, my husband, and my co-sisters and her husband. We really enjoyed watching the game, same time talking and gossiping with each other. It was a memorable moment when I went to Chicago. That was really nice trip. We still remember the evening.

    • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

      Bonding over football. Cute! Glad you had a good time!

      • ramadevi

        We had nice time in Chicago.

  • Jennifer B.

    I don’t watch much football, but when I do you can almost bet the game will go into overtime. It’s a running joke my husband and I have. He watched the first half of last night’s Super Bowl at another location while I stayed home. When he did get home we started the 3rd quarter together. It looked like there was no way the Patriots were going to launch a comeback. Lo and behold, OVERTIME! My husband just looks at me like this was my fault. He was somewhat rooting for the Falcons. I, being originally from NE, was wishing for another Pats victory. Now we are looking for ways to make money using my “talent”. lol.

    • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

      LMAO!!! That’s hilarious! Unfortunately, I can’t seem to stop smoking for too long so, when my husband or the whole family is at a restaurant, I usually go outside to smoke after the appetizers are eaten. (My husband hates that I smoke.) No matter how long I wait, the main course usually comes when I’m outside. One time, it took so long to get served that my husband actually said, “Why don’t you go out and smoke so they will bring the food?” Those are words I NEVER thought I would hear!!!

  • Nicole

    just before my parent’s divorce. things were starting to hit the fan, and we all knew it. junior year in high school, we would bounce around from friends’ houses and watch the game. the last year we spent together as a “happy family” was the year before coach cowher retired.

  • Brian Vaughn

    Of course it has to be my team being down 25 points last night to comeback and win the Super Bowl. Have always been a Pats fan and always will be. For anyone who hates the patriots, what do you have to say now? Deflategate, now comebackgate? SB51 definitely one of the best memories

    • Jennifer B.

      #comebackgate? Ha, love it! Go Pats!

  • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

    It had to be yesterday. My 22 year old son left his friends so he could hang with us from the second quarter until the end of the game, and do the “hors deuvres” thing we do every year. When the Patriots were losing, he told us exactly what had to happen for them to win, and it turned out to be EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED. Besides being the first Super Bowl game to go into OT, JULIAN EDELMAN made the most FANTASTIC catch. The ball didn’t touch the ground. He let go of it and caught it again, and it STILL didn’t touch the ground! My son was the one that got me interested in football because he would explain everything as it was happening as we watched games together, and predict what was going to happen. What an exciting game we saw yesterday!

  • Fayelle

    As a junior in high school, I signed up to play powder puff football. The cheerleaders were all boys, all girls played football. It was 2 practices, 1 game, juniors vs seniors. One of the most fun things I have ever done! The seniors won (because it was tradition) but our team of juniors actually slaughtered them. We came together – girls who maybe didn’t know each other, maybe didn’t like each other, but we had a common goal. And it was teamwork at its finest. So much fun!

    • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

      What a great idea, Fayelle! Whoever thought of that was pretty clever!

  • Louis-Philippe Noël

    a certain half-time show with Janet Jackson…don’t need to tell more ahah

    • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

      Hahahahahahaha. I still say it was staged.

  • edeliz

    Halftime show by Prince. It was really raining when he sang Purple Rain, for goodness sakes! To me, still the best halftime of all.

    • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

      Yep. Great half-time show!

  • Jennifer Foisy

    Lady Gaga last night. To die for!!

    • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

      Not bad at all, Jennifer! My favorite part of the super bowl!

  • Debbie Thompson Bulthuis

    When I was a teenager, my brother & I were HUGE pro football fans. My favorite memory was watching the games every Sunday and Monday nights together with my favorite snack being Munchos and Mello Yello. My brother now has Parkinson’s Disease and is so stressed by any company that I don’t get to experience those games with him as adults. Those were the good ole days!

    • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

      So sorry, Debbie. Hold onto those memories!

      • Debbie Thompson Bulthuis

        Very sweet, thank you 🙂

  • Anna Nicole

    Last night. I’m not a football fan but it was really important to one of my friends that the Pats win. Her father passed away recently & was a HUGE Patriots fan. Everyone had given up but I kept saying that the Pats could come back. Just because it’s never happened doesn’t mean it can’t happen. My friend is over the moon today!

    • Laura Winslow

      Miracles do happen Anna.

  • Timothy Mccollum

    The Giants upsetting New England Patriots when they were undefeated.

    • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

      Yes! I’m not a big football fan but my son is getting me interested and I do live in NJ so GO GIANTS!

  • Laura Winslow

    Through thick and thin I am a die hard Patriots fan. And one of my fondest moments is watching the games with my family and friends. He passed away last March so I know he would of enjoyed last nights comback win for the Pats. Love you Dad

    • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

      So sorry for your loss, Laura and, yeah, he would have LOVED yesterday’s game!!!

  • Jen Doute Colson

    Mine wasn’t a super bowl or any professional game for that matter. It was the Class D State Championship in Michigan, Fall of 1996. I was a cheerleader on the side lines and it was one of my most favorite moments of all times. Raiders for life!

    • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

      I was a “booster” in high school. We had the uniforms and pom poms and sang cheers. Everything went smoothly until the third game. It was their first loss of the season so we made two lines where the players would exit the field and said encouraging words to the players. Well, they didn’t take the loss well. They were cursing at us as they trotted by. A few F bombs were thrown at us, too. That was my LAST day of being a booster. I quit right after that game!

  • Judy Burba McGarvey

    Don’t know if this counts as a football memory or not. My favorite memory associated with football is the centerfold of Joe Namath in Playgirl magazine. 🙂

    • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

      I remember that! LOL

  • Jenn Blanchard Avon Rep

    I dont watch football or a favorite team. But because i am an true torontonian i support the argos.

  • Diane Lane

    It had to be the Thanksgiving Day High School game back in the mid seventies. Our school playing the next town team and someone in the middle of the game released two wild turkeys into the field. Then the turkeys began to chase the players all over the field. A game to remember.

    • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

      LMBO. That must have been hilarious! I don’t think my daughter thought it was too funny when, as a kid, she came home from school and found five wild turkeys on our front steps. She had to go around to the back of the house to get in! LOL. No matter how long I live in the ‘burbs, I’m still city folk and things like that still amaze me, even after living here for over 30 years!

  • Carol Miller

    My favorite football memory was when my brother Tom was the captain of his high school football team, Bishop Shanahan. He led the team to the all catholic victory for the suburban league. We had a big celebration back at our house and the Cardinal of Philadelphia at the time gave the entire school a day off. My brother was a real hero.

    • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

      Wow, Carol! Did he get to go to college on a football scholarship?

      • Carol Miller

        No Diane. He went to West Chester State and was a Phys. Ed major. The tuition at the time was very reasonable and my parents had 3 of us in college at the same time. It was much easier to get money back then. He was recruited for football from many colleges but went to West Chester because they were known for their Physical.Ed department. He did play football for West Chester though. He went into business for himself and never taught Phys Ed. Probably better. He is a very successful businessman. He runs his own painting company and is well known in our area. Thanks for asking. My mother use to go to church and pray no one would get seriously injured when they played

        • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

          I’m kinda glad he didn’t. Too many concussions causing long-term brain damage. I wish they could do something besides the precautions they already take. College kids are getting permanently damaged and nothing is being done for them.

          • Carol Miller

            Diane, that is why my mother use to go to St. Agnes church, which was right near Shanahan and pray no one would get seriously hurt. You are so right. There are way too many injuries in football.

        • Natania

          Awesome story Carol, good job to your brother.

          • Carol Miller

            Thank you, Natania

  • Sue W.

    My favorite football memory was last nite at the end of the Super Bowl when I thought….”NO MORE FOOTBALL!!”

    • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

      LOL. No more football…until next season!

      • Sue W.

        Don’t ruin my moment….LOL

        • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

          LMBO!!!

  • Michaele Dalin Goodson

    Senior prom winning the game, dating a linebacker.LOL

    • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

      Good times! LOL. I’m jealous. I was the shy one in high school.

  • jock

    Me and my childhood buddies would go to a game with so much belief. We always had so much spirit and dressed up to go to the games, we would wear our teams colors, we would shout and cheer on top of our lungs, even though our team was pretty bad we thought ours is the best. And we fight(friendly way of course) thru tooth and nail to win.

  • Vonnie Aldrete

    My favorite football memory is when I was a teen and at a highschool football game. It was raining cats and dogs and with no umbrella or anything, was literally soaked, but wasn’t going to leave this important game. I have always had terrible hair, baby fine, thin, somewhat curly and it was always a lengthy chore to me to get it to look nice. Needless to say, drenched, I pulled out my brush and was constantly trying to make it look decent in pouring rain, in a stadium packed with people. My friends just kept telling me I was crazy and I’m sure people I didn’t know were thinking same. There was nothing I could have possibly done to make it look better, but I sure did try. Lol, teenagers!

    • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

      LOL. That was funny! Bet you wouldn’t bother if it happened now!

  • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

    Sounds like a fun family, Karen!

  • Nicole D. C

    Every Sunday and Monday was my Dad’s nights/days to watch tv. It was always on football. If you stayed in the room you cheered for who he was cheering for or you were quiet. Majority of the time it was a nice excuse for a nap!

  • DM

    The last football game Dustin and I went to were his two favorite teams. He could not decide which jersey to wear. So he wore one and I wore the other. Will never ever forget the magical day.

  • Ken Grant

    It just happened. After Superbowl 51 they interviewed Tom Brady’s mom who is dealing with a serious illness. The joy on her face took my breath away.

  • renee

    It was actually last night seeing Brady’s mom. That was special.

  • Erin Estilette

    When the Saints won the Super Bowl!!

  • Theresa Holly

    Going to a Penn State football game and Penn State won. Had a party afterward to celebrate. After that I became a big fan fan of Penn State football

  • Sally

    my favorite football memory was this past Sunday when i watched Superbowl 51 when record history i got to watch my team the patriots come back from a big loss to end up taking the field and bringing there team into an overtime and then taking it home for the win….i will never forget this superbowl and how i ws so proud of my team and the passion and commitment they had with determination to take it home

  • James Goucher

    My favorite memory of football was in the late 80’s, when I was in college studying and went to one of the local Universities football games. I entered the stadium wearing my college jacket and had my camera with me. The gate attendant pulled me aside and proceeded to ask me if I would be interested in photographing the day’s football game. Will it took me all of about 2 seconds to to say awesome, Yes I would be honored . He proceeded to tell me that I’d be shooting from the 50 yard line at field level… yeah, I said right in the middle of all the action. I got some really awesome photos that day and 2 pairs of ticket for the seasons final game, to boot. One of the photos I shot that day I entered in a photo contest at the college I was attending and won first place in the sports category. That was just the beginning of my shooting Football and University sports as an amauter photographer. Oh and the home team that day, that wanted me to photographer their game won 34-28. Just like the Super Bowl LI game I watched last night… Go Patriots. 🙂

  • Ann Gaetke

    my favorite football memory is when a friend took me to my first vikings game and i wore all vikings stuff and had one side of my face yellow and the other side purple that was a blast i will never forget that day

  • Natania

    In 2005 we had a big super bowl party, all of our friends and family came, we had so many snacks, it was great. Most of the men was watching the game on the big screen and the women were playing cards. However we did have the game on,but we would only watch when the commercials came on and play when the game was on. I guess it was so memorable just because we were all together and had a great time, and maybe a little to much to drink also. Now it seems most of them have kids and would rather stay home and watch the game. I guess you could say we are all older and more wiser and don’t want drink and drive.

    • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

      Well, obviously that’s smart of them but I’m glad you got to have a “Super Bowl” experience, Natania. Sounds like lots of fun!

  • Kari McDowell

    Watching my 5 year old son play for the first time. He looked like a running helmet all the equipment was so big on him and the other kids too. That really is what it is all about, the kids who love to play and never asking for anything in return except for a roaring audience – of course mostly parents.

    • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

      He must have looked adorable, Kari! Enjoy him!!!

  • Christy

    My husband was selected as the 2016 Falcon’s American Hero. My 9 year old grandson had never been to a pro football game so we took him. We spent the night in a gorgeous hotel in Atlanta and had front row seats on the 50 yard line for the game. Before the game we were allowed on the field and Riley was able to practice with some of the guys and was given star treatment. Especially by the cheerleaders which freaked him out LOL At half time they honored my husband for his 20 years of service including 4 tours in Vietnam, 4 purple heart awards and a medal of honor. He received a standing ovation in the middle of the field at a packed Georgia Dome and everything was aired on the Jumbotron and on national TV. I was so very proud of him and honored to be there with him. It was a football game I will never forget and my grandson still talks about it 7 months later!!! Riley and his PaPa on the field and the moment he saw his PaPa on the Jumbotron! Cheesing with Grandma.

  • M.D.

    My favorite football memory was when my family realized I was a lover and not a fighter. This happened as they realized I was already the last one to jump onto the pile when someone was being tackled. When I asked I told them that I just couldn’t hurt other people like that. I knew it was a game but I didn’t like causing unnecessary pain. So from that point on my dad and I had our own team helmets mine the Dolphins and him the Raiders and we would always throw a huge party when our two teams would rival.

  • Poyani Mehta

    It was a great game I remember

  • Tabatha Howay

    My favorite football memory happened last year when I got to see my cousin’s college football team win regionals! He was the kicker but still pretty cool for his Freshman year!!!

  • Taylor Matheny

    When the Chiefs beat the Broncos with a bounce in field goal.
    Made my Night!

  • rose morgan

    10 years ago when the New Orleans Saints won the Superbowl and the entire city exploded in excitement.

  • Sarah Turner

    My favorite football memory was when I was little I would watch the Seahawks with my grandpa. This is my favorite because he passed away in 2004 and I have not really watched one scene then.

  • Leslie Anne Soloman

    My favorite football memory is when my eldest son was 12 years old and joined the local pal league football team. He went and participated in every practice and was so excited, he just knew he was going to be a starter when the season began. To his great disappointment he was bench reserve player. On the last game he finally got a chance to start and did really well. After the final team dinner celebration he told me that if he could not be a starter he wasn’t interested in being a bench player so he decided that was it. Well I was glad because I’m not a football fan anyway so I was fine with his decision.

  • Chrystal Ozovek

    We are HUGE Dallas Cowboys fans!!! On special Sundays my husband and I and our three children enjoy going to a local sports restaurant, Damon’s, to watch our team play!! We all wear our jersey’s – even our one year old! My 11 and 9 year old like to paint their faces too! We order our favorite appetizers and cheer as loud as we can! It’s so much fun!

  • Felicia League

    My favorite football memory was when I was a little girl growing up in Baltimore City, I was able to go to the Ravens game with who I called my Poppy, which was ny grandmas boyfriend but he had raised me since a baby and treated me as my own. I didnt know anything about football but just adored him so much i would if went anywhere with him, he was so happy and loved being at the stadium. That was one of my last memory’s with him because my family treated him horrible and did so much wrong to him that he ended up wanting nothing more to do with me anymore even though I was just a child. But I understood I didn’t want nothing to do with my family either. But I’m just so grateful he chose me as his partner for the football game because it was one of my favorite times with him, and also some of the last memories I have with him. I’ll never forget it!!!

    • Melissa McLaughlin

      Aww, your story is cute, but sad. Is he still alive? You should try to find him, if he is. He probably loved you as much as you loved him.

  • dottie p

    don’t like football, i don’t have one. i don’t think football players should get paid more then the men and women protecting our country. however, i did get to go to one game. my brother was a security guard and got 2 free tickets to the game. (green bay packers) on family night so my daughter and i went, she had a great time. me… well i read a book. but we spent time together. and she loved it. that’s when she really got into liking football, not as much as my brother but she’ll watch it occasionally

  • katrina kaine

    My favorite football memories were when my 3 boys played in little league with there sister as a cheerleader they were the cutest little football players ! I enjoyed those memories much better than pro or college football . They only played upto middle school but it was the best!

  • Paul Clément

    When we were in our teens, my friends and I would regularly play tackle football in a local field without the usual equipment. Fortunately, no serious injuries were had and we enjoyed quite a few good times. Wonder if today’s generation would venture in the same direction!

  • Deb Bryant

    Being in the marching band and playing the half time shows.

  • MT

    All th backyard games with my cousins growing up! Both my parents had huge families so we always had plenty of kids to play at family get togethers. Nobody was a pro but we had fun!

  • Lynn

    My favorite football memory is from when I was a child. Every Sunday my father and grandfather were glued to the TV watching football. They both had opposite teams, of course. Through the years I was taught the rules of the game. I treasure those days and thank them both for instilling my life-long love of the game. I look forward to each new season with great anticipation!!

  • MyKinKStar

    My Daddy loved being outside in any kind of weather, doing something in his shop or in the yard, but on Sunday it was all about football. He had a chair in his bedroom and would be there watching TV, with his Pomeranian pup Smoky by his feet or on his lap. I would hear him on the other end of the house whenever his team would score.

  • Melissa Lopez

    I would have to say last night the Super Bowl 2017. When in the last quarter when New England Patriots where down 20/28 Atlanta and with 57 seconds left Tom Brady ties the game.. that was just crazy and u never say its over til it is over.

  • Joanne Blacketer

    Tough to come up with one fav, I watched my baby brother play football and then my youngest son. .i guess my most memorable was once my son graduated from high school my brother and him plagued football together on a local flag football league. Loved watching their games, cheering them on and being their Foy the championship game in which they won

  • Faydra

    Years ago when Bernie Kosar was a “big” deal with the Cleveland Browns, he was out for an injury to his leg, and showed up at our high school (Harvey High School in Painesville, OH) football game! He was just an “average joe”… Don’t know if he was looking for pointers from the kids or what HAHA….

  • Julie Dascoli-Yanop

    My favorite football memory is my brothers playing football with the coach pillows in our living room growing up.

  • Mark Hall

    Liverpool FC winning the European Cup in Istanbul having been 3-0 down, what a rollercoaster of a night. However if you are referring to the American Hand-egg game, then that jaw dropping moment when William Perry aka ‘The Fridge’ threw a Touch-down Pass, that was a moment I shall never forget.

  • 77giggles

    My fav football memory was being able to see my son get his ring when his semi-pro team won their championship. The smile on his face was priceless when they won that game! I’m so glad I was there to see them win!

  • Unknown

    My favorite football memory was the comeback the patriots made in the super bowl 51.

  • Rebecca lee

    I still love to watch the video of Katy Perry’s half time superbowl show involving “the shark on the left”. As she sang she had two dancers behind her dressed in shark costumes. They began the show in sync however halfway through the shark on the left seems to forget the routine and just starts doing their own freestyle moves! I love it! I think it’s so funny and as I’m not really a fan of football, for me it was the best bit of that years super bowl.

  • Rhonda J

    My favorite football memory was when my brother played for the boys club and they did not they were the only team that did not have cheerleaders. Start Axor coach about it and he said if I could get some girls together that we could become their cheerleaders. We were there very first cheerleading squad

  • Stacie Snow

    The first time my grandson played peewee football! So funny watching all the little boys trying to play right but all doing it wrong!;

  • Shereida

    this season and how well the Raiders did!!!!

  • Tyanne Hickey

    My favorite memory is watching football with my family and friends. Rooting for the same team and being happy when our team wins. Assisting with fixing the food to eat before, during and after the game.

  • Andrew Reynolds

    My favorite memory was at home with my dad watching Florida State football games.

  • Melissa McLaughlin

    I got to meet one of my all-time fave Philadelphia Eagles players – Harold Carmichael #17. I used to rock that tiny little Eagles jersey, as a baby. I went up to the beach in Wildwood, NJ, one summer, and Carmichael & a few old school Eagles players were all playing a charity football game. Carmichael ended up staying afterwards and signing autographs & meeting fans. I ran straight home (luckily, I live down the street!) I got my little ol’ jersey and ran back. He saw me in line and came running over! He actually thought that my little old jersey was so freaking awesome (his words) He signed it, took pics with us, and I ended up chillin’ with him for awhile, just talking old football. He was a great player, and an even greater man. He was a very nice guy all round. I was soo very proud to be an Eagles fan that day!
