The Boys of Fall

 

So as we approach the fall season (even though it’s the middle of August), my husband longs for that crisp fresh air…..longs for football season. Longs for the big game….cheering on his team….going over stats….setting up his teams….longs for the smack talk….longs for those touch downs and end zone celebrations….while he remembers his youth in Pop Warner football. My husband is truly the happiest those nine months out of the year and while I will miss him at church Sunday morning while we are singing hymns, he will be sitting in his arm-chair with The big TV tuned on one game, the small TV next to it tuned to the Red Zone and his laptop on his fantasy football team and I will know in my heart that he is content and happy. Really what can we do as wives and girl friends but support our men and their love for the game right? So this post is a tribute to my husband.

My husband, Hunky Hubs as a free safety.

When I feel that chill, smell that fresh-cut grass
I’m back in my helmet, cleats and shoulder pads
Standing in the huddle listening to the call
Fans going crazy for the boys of fall
They didn’t let just anybody in that club
Took every ounce of heart and sweat and blood
To get to wear those game day jerseys down the hall
Kings of the school man, we’re the boys of fall

(Chorus:)
Well it’s turn and face the Stars and Stripes
It’s fighting back them butterflies
It’s call it in the air, alright yes sir we want the ball
And it’s knocking heads and talking trash
It’s slinging mud and dirt and grass
It’s I got your number, I got your back when your back’s against the wall
You mess with one man you got us all
The boys of fall

In little towns like mine that’s all they got
Newspaper clippings fill the coffee shops
The old men will always think they know it all
Young girls will dream about the boys of fall

(Chorus:)
Well it’s turn and face the Stars and Stripes
It’s fighting back them butterflies
It’s call it in the air, alright yes sir we want the ball
And it’s knocking heads and talking trash
It’s slinging mud and dirt and grass
It’s I got your number, I got your back when your back’s against the wall
You mess with one man you got us all
The boys of fall

(Chorus:)
Well it’s turn and face the Stars and Stripes
It’s fighting back them butterflies
It’s call it in the air, alright yes sir we want the ball
And it’s knocking heads and talking trash
It’s slinging mud and dirt and grass
It’s I got your number, I got your back when your back’s against the wall
You mess with one man you got us all
The boys of fall

We’re the boys of fall

We’re the boys of fall

Hunky Hubs even though you don’t like country, I ask that you please watch this…at least once. I love you!

  1. Oh, football, I’m actually glad my hubby’s not into sports! (Sorry!) We are both willing to figure them out if are kiddos go that direction, but secretly hope they don’t. Yup, we’re geeks! It’s great that you can look on it so ‘supportively’! Maybe you should get out on a date again before it all starts back up! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Love this….it is so like my husband…these first few games they’ve had…he’s been down in the basement…”honey are you okay?” “oh yeah”….gotta love fall…and LOVE the Kenny Chesney Song….so good…following you now! Thanks so much for coming by!
