I honestly believe that the smart phone and unlimited plans are the greatest invention to happen to football fans and fantasy football fans ever. Instead of hours of sitting next to the computer checking the scores and stats of non-televised games for his fantasy football, he can pull his phone out of his pocket and know the score in seconds before coming back to what we are doing in the present.
We are a football family. When I first met my husband, I hated the game. He graciously gave up watching his favorite sport for a while, but after we had been dating awhile, he was done. He wanted to watch football and more, he wanted me to watch it with him. He took me on a date to a college football game and told me that when I could understand the game well enough to explain it to him, we could leave. I set out to learn the game quickly, so we could get out of there, but by the end of the half. I was hooked. Now that I understood the game, I loved it. We have spent almost every Saturday during football season since then either watching football on TV or in attendance at a stadium.
Football is an important part of our lives and since our purchase of smart phones a couple of years ago, easier to access than ever.
