Football Overload

Football has taken over our lives recently, college and professional.  Usually that would be just fine in my book, but this year it means I hardly get to see Jeff on the weekends because as part of his Sports Medicine Fellowship he has to do Saturday morning clinics and cover football games on the weekend.

I went down to New Orleans again this weekend for probably the last time for awhile because this is the last week of Jeff's away rotation (yay!), but I didn't get to see too much of him.  Saturday night Jeff had to be at the Tulane football game to stand on the sidelines in case any of the players got hurt.  I got some free tickets to go to the game- my first Tulane game after going there for 5 years for grad school!  It was pretty cool getting to see him running into the stadium after the players and standing on the sidelines.

Tulane plays in the Superdome because they don't have their own stadium (they're building one on campus that will be finished next year).  Because of this, you can sit wherever you want since not many people go to the games.  We got some great seats about 10 rows up front and center!

Great seats to watch the hubs "in action" even though he never had to do anything the whole game ;)  Sadly, they lost the game by about 2 points, but it was a good showing for a team that traditionally has losing seasons.

He's the one looking at the camera

After the Tulane game, we headed to The Bulldog uptown to watch the LSU game that has a pretty outside patio.  There was beer, there were twinkling lights, and the Tigers won!  Good night in my book. 

But that wasn't enough football for one weekend, oh no!  The Saints played on Sunday and we decided to watch it at Dat Dog.  Gourmet hot dogs from around the world?  Cheese fries?  Yes, please.

By the time the game started, the restaurant filled with Saints fans (and a couple of brave Falcons fans) and we had a great time cheering them on with the crowd.  Thankfully, the Saints pulled out a win at the end!  The Atlanta Falcons are our biggest rivals so it always feels good to beat those Dirty Birds!

WHO DAT baby!
