Rise Up!

This month, we took Lucy to her first professional football game. And, it was MY first football game as well! I was psyched. We had tickets (that were FREE, I might add!) in the end zone in the 11th row. Seriously. We had awesome seats.

The Falcons were playing the Ravens, my hometown team. I didn’t know who to cheer for! I ended up rooting for the Falcons, but I will say that I LOVED hearing the few Ravens fans in attendance shout the “O” during the National Anthem. It’s something that’s always done at Orioles games.

When the Falcons run out, they shoot off fireworks. Lucy LOVED that.



We stayed until the third quarter, and by then we had been there for more than two hours. I heard on the radio later that it took longer than normal to get through the first half. We were getting tired and, even though she didn’t want to leave, Lucy was tired as well. She had fun cheering and waving to the Falcon, though.


She also had a blast dancing and entertaining everyone sitting around us, though.





And, of course, I took a video of her dancing. The pictures don’t do her justice. You have to see this girl in action. You’re welcome.

It was only a pre-season game, but it was still a lot of fun. And, I know a regular season will have even more energy. We’re hoping to go to again this season, and we’ll probably leave Lucy at home so we can really focus and enjoy the game. I can’t wait!
