Growing up football was a big part of my life. Every Sunday I would sit down with my dad and watch all the games. We would dissect what the teams were doing and what we thought they should do. I grew up in Brooklyn, New York, being a San Francisco 49ers fan was odd but it was due to my love for Joe Montana. I am now a Kansas City Chiefs fan and if you can figure out the connection and why then you have solved a mystery that not many get.
Football is a way of life and it is has been such a part of my family, that even after dad passed away I kept up with the family traditions because it is a way to create strong bonds and continue with family traditions. I have to admit that I am the female who has the cave, I am the one who has DirectTV so that I can watch all the games at once and no miss a down. You should see how I am with my fantasy team. I am also the one who loves to have all the food ready for game day.
While game day happens just once a week, the preparations for game day begins right after the last game. From a appetizers on a random Sunday to a large scale, annual party for the division rivalry game, each and every gathering has many game day traditions. Since I prefer to have one-stop shopping, Walmart is my go-to destination for all our game day traditions supplies.
From laundry pods to paper towels, I can purchase all my P&G products at affordable prices. Plus, once I’ve stocked up on supplies, I can fill my basket with all the food and drinks that are needed for the big game.
When game day arrives while I am cooking I need to get ready. I believe that once I am showered and pampered I will be ready to root on my team. I love using Crest 3D White Whitestrips Professional Effects these help my smile shine for those up close pictures during the game. It removes up to 14 years of stains, the results will last up to 12 months and the advanced seal technology means no-slip grip stays put. Plus it uses the same enamel-safe teeth whitening agent that dentists use.
Then it is time to hit the shower and use two of my favorite P&G products. Head & Shoulders Classic Clean Shampoo during the Fall and Winter I love this shampoo because it fights a dry scalp, calms an itchy scalp and relieves irritation. It is gentle and pH balanced for daily use on all types of hair, even on colored or chemically treated hair. I t is the number one dermatologist recommended dandruff brand. While I am taking care of my hair my legs need some care also and I turn to Gillette Venus Swirl Razor. With the Flexiball technology it helps to better reach the tricky area, like knees and ankles. It has a water-activated moisture glide serum that provides an incredible glide and a micro fine comb guides hair to the blades.
Once I am dressed and ready to go it is time to focus on the food. We love having everyone over to cheer especially during the playoffs and this calls for my chicken dinners. I love preparing chicken and all the sides to have everyone enjoy the day. All of my friends look forward to these days as they know it is my big cooking day.
While our preferred team may be your rival, game time traditions are more than just cheering your team to victory. From the football parties to the team attire, the team supports a camaraderie between friends, neighbors and family. The time spent together whether in front of the television or in the stands create memories that will last a lifetime. The game time traditions will last longer than any winning streak but the Chiefs have just won five straight. Go Chiefs Go.
