Holy crap! I probably could have skipped the gym today!

This week is Bowl Week for college football and today was the Capital One bowl in Florida. You are probably wondering what this has to do with anything, and I'm going to tell you right now. Nebraska played South Carolina and it was one hell of a game. Nebraska is my team. I will drop anything to watch some Nebraska football.

Now, I always want the Huskers to win, but I also love to watch a damn good football game. This game was amazing. There were blocked extra points, missed field goals, bad plays on the 4th down, hail Mary's, fist fights, players ejected from the game, interceptions, fumbles, a million quarter back sacks, coaches having screaming matches with refs and players, and penalties in every direction you looked. Half this crap happened before half time too.

My heart was racing for the entire game, and I even had to call Janelle to have her ask Zach what certain calls meant. It was like doing cardio without leaving the couch. I should have worn my heart rate monitor. I swear I burned a good 600 calories watching the game. I was getting so worked up that I had to boil water and break out the tension tamer tea!

I feel like watching the game was my second workout of the day. I guess I could have stayed in this morning instead of going to the gym in the cold and snow.

So, if you are looking for some extra calorie burning watch a sport that you enjoy. You will surly burn more calories.

Oh yea, Nebraska lost. It was 30 to 13. South Carolina won. I'm not too sad though, it was an awesome game and a cold day. Watching the game gave me an excellent excuse to stay in and chill on the couch.


  1. I hear ya! Right now I'm watching BAdgers - Go Big Red!

  2. You're SO right on with this one. I get such a workout, watching my team. I do more jumping than I do in a plyo workout.

  3. So funny..... silly, crazed sports fans always make me laugh.
