One of the many amazing things about Teri is she loves to watch football. She caught the bug from her mom, Helen, who gave her family generous helpings of TLC all year long. But when New Year's Day rolled about, it was her day off to watch football. No ifs, and or huge linemen's butts about it.
Teri roots on her beloved Seattle Seahawks of the NFL and the Oregon State Beavers of college ranks. She'll even occasionally root for Jeff's alma mater. the Oregon Ducks. With their high-powered offense, and No. 1 ranking in the nation midway through the 2011 season, it's hard not to dance around the house every time they score. In the Ducks' come-from-behind win over Stanford, we danced up a storm.
I'm already looking ahead to the next time we are lucky enough to share the same TV screen or, better yet, be at a Duck game in person. When Oregon scores a touchdown, I'll ask Teri to do the Duck Dance with me. It's easy to learn. Just let the inhibitions run free. Twist in circles like a little kid and raise both arms high in the air. Spin until you're dizzy and giggling.
Guaranteed, you'll feel 40 years younger in no time.
