Football season started just a couple of weeks after Brian deployed, and it became my own little tradition to settle in for a day of football at home every Sunday. I am the type of person who needs to relax and have some downtime before the hustle and bustle of a new week begins, and I began to really treasure those football days. I cheered with every success, every amazing catch and last-minute win. I groaned with every failure, missed tackle, and dropped pass. It is easy to feel lonely in a house all by myself, but Ravens games were always a welcome distraction and passed the weekends a little bit easier.
It has been an incredible season, and I am so excited that they made it to the Super Bowl!
Brian will be waking up in a few hours, at 4am his time, to cheer on the Ravens from Afghanistan. I hope they can bring home the win!
