It’s Spring, But Are You Ready for Some Football?

As noted earlier this week, baseball and Spring go hand in hand. But, football sure joins the party this weekend!

The annual college football scrimmage games seem to get more popular each and every year, and definitely here in Happy Valley! To mark the end of spring practice, Penn State takes on, well, Penn State in Saturday’s annual Blue-White game. It’s a neat opportunity though, primarily for families, to enjoy Nittany Lion football. Not only is the game free to attend, but family fun is abound with a two-day carnival, live music and an on-the-field autograph session!

Along with other college games, the yearly NFL Draft continues this weekend. The childhood dreams of hundreds of football players are achieved as they are selected to NFL teams. Could your kid be a top draft pick someday? Find out with our Football Goal Post Set! Ready for hours of fun in the backyard, it comes with the goalposts, field markers, football and tee.

(Perhaps subliminally, we managed to pick the Football Goal Post Set for our weekly Twitter giveaway as well. On Monday we’ll draw a winner – could it be you? You can enter as many times as you want!)

Indoor fun and outside play meet with the Design Your Own Real Football Kit! Going out for a game of catch will be that much more fun with a football that’s one-of-a-kind.

What role do sports play in your family’s life? Stop by our Facebook page and let us know.
