"Yo fui al partido de fútbol Americano" - Football Weekend Recap

When I was in High School, every Monday morning my Spanish Teacher would ask the class "what did you do this weekend?" (in Spanish) and then if you raised your hand and answered (in Spanish) he'd give you like .1 of an extra credit point. So every Monday in the Fall I would raise my hand and say, "Yo fuí al partido de fútbol Americano" (I went to a Football Game). And it was true because I was always at either my High School games, San Diego State games, or Charger games.

Well, I'm starting to feel like my blog has become my Spanish class this Fall, because it seems that the major thing going in my life is Football games. So if you don't like football, just go ahead and skip this post. But for the pigskin lovin' girls like me, here's a recap of my Football weekend.

My cousin and his girlfriend arrived at LAX on Friday afternoon. Friday night we grilled out, drank wine, and went to the Laugh Factory Comedy Club in Long Beach. Good times!

Saturday morning we gave them a mini tour of Long Beach and LA and then headed to USC for to see the Trojans take on the Cougars!

I love seeing campus on Game Day! So full of energy and Cardinal & Gold. Here's the Mr. and I at Tommy Trojan.


The whole crew leaving home.


Tailgating.


I'm happy to report that the Trojans won this weekend!

Sunday morning we drove down to San Diego to watch the Chargers beat the Miami Dolphins!

We sat with a bunch of friends from San Diego in the first/second row of endzone. Great seats!

Here I am with my friend, Sarah.


The Charger Girls!


Right before the Chargers scored a touchdown!


I took a day off work on Monday to relax with my family in San Diego and go to Mission Beach.

Now it's back to the grind until next the Football Weekend, which actually starts this Friday when we fly up the San Francisco Bay area to watch the Trojans play at UC Berkely (Cal) on Saturday! And next Monday I can once again say, "Yo fui al partido de fútbol Americano."

Funnily enough, I am SO not a football (or any other sport really)fan but today I wore my husbands USC sweatshirt and got the STRANGEST looks from people in my class. Of course I forgot why everyone would be looking at me that way and was totally confused!

Fun - love the Tommy Trojan pic!

You're a good football fan for a San Diego girl, by the way. I find we tend to be such fair-weather fans - and I include myself here completely - but you're representing us very well.

Have fun at the Cal game! The People's Republic of Berkeley is such fun for a weekend visit.

My PSU husband would not take kindly to a comment on a USC blog! Good thing this means nothing to me.

Look at you guys all decked out in your USC gear. I'm doing photos of Angry Toddler in his USC gear for Kelly's Korner this week. It's about our teams.
