Sports Freaks All Around Our House #SportsFreak365

For my husband, who grew up in California, the San Francisco 49er's weren't just a football team to him, they were "his" team. He has two older brothers, one of which is eight years older than him and he was taught a lot about football from a young age. They were 49er's fans, naturally so was he. He and his brothers would travel from Sacramento to San Fransisco often to attend games at Candlestick Park. Most of the time they were the "nose bleed" seats, but they didn't care they were at a niner's game! They were SportsFreaks then and now it has gotten worse. Here is my husband with his new NFL Sports Calendar from SportsFreak365!

My husband lived in California until he was 20 years old and for the last 12 years we have lived in Washington State. You would think (at least I did) that because he now lives in Washington that naturally he would become a Seattle Seahawks fan. I was WRONG. According to my husband you can't just change the team you root for and love. How dare I suggest otherwise! Ha! He tells me that just because he doesn't live in California anymore doesn't mean they can't still be his "team". Although he is now rooted in Washington, he proudly wears his niners gear all year long. If there is a hat on his head you better believe it is a 49er's hat. He must own a dozen by now but I am sure he could always use another. Check out this sweet San Francisco 49ers Training Camp 3930 39THIRTY® Flex Fit Hat by New Era this would make a great Christmas gift for him.

I myself am a Seattle Seahawks fan, but I didn't grow up in Washington either. I figure we are here and so are they, it only makes sense. All of their games are aired on TV every week so we never miss a game. It just makes things easier if you ask me. It has now been twelve years since I became a Seahawks fan and I don't think I can change "my team", even if we were to move. He is right, once a fan always a fan.

My husband, being the SportsFreak that he is, we can give him a gift relating to his team and it is always well received! If you ask me giving someone a gift with their team logo on it, that is one of the easier ways to win them over. My husband has so much 49er's gear that I have bought him (and several others) over the years that I do believe he could open his own Sport Shop! Everyone we know buys him anything with a 49er's logo on it from coffee mugs to hats, they know he will love it and wear it with pride.

So now here we are a "die hard" San Fransisco 49er's fan and a "die hard" Seattle Seahawks fan trying to live in harmony. Most of the time it is easy to get along when it comes to football, he cheers for his team and I cheer for mine. The one hard thing is the two teams are in the same division so this makes things a little more complicated when they are playing each other. But we seem to manage around here.
