Raise your hand if you care more about football food than the actual football game. 🙋
Now raise your hand if you’re throwing a Superbowl watch party just so you can make these vegan baked potato skins. 🙋🙋🙋
Okay good, I’m glad we’re all on the same page.
I was raised to live and breathe football. Growing up in the deep South, where “SEC” & “LSU” are the most popular three-letter phrases, it’s something that you are inevitably born into. Saturdays are for college football games, Sundays are for all-day NFL coverage. If you aren’t wearing purple and gold on game days, you’re an outsider. We’re all Tigers, capital T, no ifs, ands or buts.
Truth is, I never wanted to go to LSU. Nope, I wanted to get the heck out of Louisiana and see something new. I didn’t want to go to the giant football games or see people from high school on campus. But life basically said HA HA to my plans and kept me here in the boot state, which in the end, couldn’t have been better. Funny how life has a way of working itself out, huh?
I never wanted to be a Tiger, but in the end, I became one. And I couldn’t be more proud.
