I always love stories about communities and organizations giving back.
This one is really special, considering my husband was in the Marines for almost ten years.
Scott Wood a Marine passed away due to injuries he received during combat in Iraq. His wife Sara Wood and 5 year old son were invited to a halftime ceremony.
The Houston Texans surprised the fallen Marines widow and son with a custom built home. The home was provided by an organization called Operation Finally Home.
Operation Finally Home provides houses to wounded, disabled veterans or the widowed and their families and all homes are mortgage free.
The house is located in the suburbs of Houston.
This charity has built 32 homes in 32 different states.
This is why I love our country…it is the greatest!

It was all smiles from Tony Romo in the last few huddles on Saturday night. Recently married in May, a baby on the way, and a win. Tony Romo has to be feeling good about life. He led his Cowboys team to a victory in a month, that in past has been a frigid one for Tony. The Cowboys now have an 8 and 6 record and control their own destiny to win the NFC East. He had 23 completions with 30 attempts against Tampa Bay. Romo threw for 249 yards with an average of 8.3 yards.

Fans Show their support for Tim Tebow by “Tebowing”
Tim Tebow has created fans around the globe. His religous background and hunger to win has many following him. His fans show support by what might now be considered a word…”Tebowing.” I found plenty of fan pictures of them supporting Tim with his now seemingly famous prayer pose. Check out these cool fan pictures.

Add some Turkey sliders to your football recipe list. I like to serve my sliders with a bowl of chip and dip. If you’re looking to please the younger crowd too, this recipe does it. Using the Turkey instead of Beef is a better choice.
Also, add some vegetables with the plate for the dip.
No, I am not writing this to promote Direct TV, earn money from affiliate links or to be paid for blogging this. I honestly love my Sunday ticket. My husband and I love our football. Careers have taken us out of our home town areas and into an area that doesn’t have an NFL Team. All of the local channels show the team games in the next state over. With that being said, we both have teams that remain in our home-state hearts. Direct TV allows us the opportunity to watch our home state teams play.

I Hate Prevent Defense…
I hate prevent defense. Many times a team has dominated the game, then in the end played prevent defense and allowed a team to drive down the field. Is anyone on board with me here? Why if a team has found a way to control the game, do you change things in the final quarter? We know the “ole” saying “if something works, no need to fix it.” Right? Not! I find myself asking this question time and time again. Changing things in the end of the game after you have held a lead playing a certain type of defense is well…..SILLY in my opinion. You see teams change it up because they are afraid of a big play happening, or don’t want to turn the ball over. “Com-on Man” as Keyshawn Johnson would say. If it has worked all game then….let them play the way it has gone for the game. Yeah, sometimes a big play happens. It seems to me that many times prevent defense leads to a LOSS plain and simple. So just stop it would ya!
