I easily came on board with the basketball games. The stadium is loud and full of excitement, and the games are fast and very easy to understand (for a girl completely unfamiliar with any sports besides golf). And the year we first bought tickets, the Heels were pretty great and fun to watch. And, of course, Michael Jordan played there!
And then came football. The first year we had football tickets, the Heels were... well... not awful. But not super fun to watch for a girl who didn't understand how the game was played, didn't like shivering on a cold metal bleacher seat, and thought there were much better ways to spend a Saturday afternoon (shopping, anyone?!). So, needless to say, I needed some convincing. But, I loved my new hubby, and wanted to enjoy the things he enjoys. So I toughed it out. And over the next couple years we got better seats, the team got better, and I finally learned the meaning to words like "down" and "sack." Now, I won't go so far as to say I *love* football. But, I do now enjoy going to games. And will even admit that I look forward to them!
So, at the end of summer, I was shopping in a local card shop which also stocks plenty of local college team paraphernalia. And I saw a burlap football door hanger for a rival team. And I thought it would look really cute on our front door... if only it had been the right team! I looked around the shop to see if they had a similar one for our dear Tar Heels, but no luck. Later that night, an internet search also did not turn up any results. So what's a crafty girl to do? Set out to make it herself.
I love this door hanger and am thrilled to have it hanging on our front door to support the Tar Heels. And Hubby loves that his wife will finally fully admit to being a Tar Heel Football fan!
