Living in the South, it’s pretty much a given that we are a football-loving family, and for me, it’s COLLEGE football that gets me screaming on any given Saturday.
Some like NFL football better, but I disagree.
NCAA football fans are fierce.
When you share a bond of attending a university together—no matter if you went to class 50 years ago or are still enrolled—you have an immediate relationship. You automatically are connected in a way that others just don’t comprehend.
I’m a UF grad and have personally watched the team win two of its national championships.
My son is a member of the Million Dollar Band at the University of Alabama, which means he gets to attend—and perform at—all the home games, many of the away games, and each of the bowl games (yes, he’s watched his team win a national championship, too).
And now, our next son was just accepted at LSU, where you can bet he’ll be yelling ‘Geaux Tigers’ as loud as any other fan.
We take our football seriously and yes, feel responsible for their victories. We KNOW that we somehow telepathically will them to victory with our cheers, despite the fact that we’re often hundreds of miles away from the stadium.
And when we’re IN the stadium, well, there’s no other feeling like it. Before the game, tailgating is taken to new levels (we have the details on planning the perfect Tailgate Party here). And when there’s a title on the line, it just makes things even more intense.
But those tickets don’t come cheap.
You want to scrape the money together somehow to be there for your team—in person—so you appreciate ways to save, like the special partnership created by NCAA, Walmart, Axe, Dove Men+ and Degree, where you can get a $5 Walmart gift card when you purchase $15 of Axe, Degree, or Dove Men+ Care products in one transaction. Heck, you want your guys to look–and smell–good, even when you’re sweating a close game.
Details can be found by clicking this link.
Just think…that can be $5 to put you closer toward your next bowl game.
But, imagine how much cooler it would be to get to go for FREE?!
I already know what you’re thinking…nobody ever really wins those things, right? Well, actually, they do. In fact, that’s how I got to see my Florida Gators win one of their championships—my best friend from high school (she’s in the pictures with me above) won a sweepstakes and was kind enough to take me as her guest to the bowl game in Miami (we figured it was good luck, since I had taken her to the bowl game we won in New Orleans a few years before).
Anyway, you can enter this giveaway for a trip to a college bowl game with a friend by clicking on this link.
And, if that’s not enough, we have other giveaways underway for one of 10 $50 Walmart gift cards or one $500 Walmart gift card (see below this post)!
I say enter all of them…you just never know!
Let me know what team you support in the comments below…and share with me what your pre-game festivities entail!
And if you win anything, come back and let me know! I’m happy to be the friend you bring along if you win the tickets to the bowl game–as long as you’re cheering for the right team!
