I think we are all excited that some sort of normal has returned with NFL football season under way. With Covid-19 still affecting everyday life, the NFL games look a bit different this year. Just because many of the stadiums will be empty of fans does not mean we won’t be enjoying the games and cheering on our teams.
We’re from Western NY, and hubby being born in Buffalo, we are Bills fans through and through.
But I will admit, watching at home is fun, watching with a group of lively friends and strangers is more fun. The energy you feel in the stadium is completely different than watching the game home alone, or with family and friends.
Luckily, there are places around us to hangout with others (6 feet apart/with a mask) have food and drinks, and cheer on our Buffalo Bills.
