Football Is Family

Do you bleed your favorite football team’s colors each weekend?  Does the difference of a W or L in the box score dictate how you respond for the rest of the week?  Or do most of your conversations with your family and friends revolve around your favorite football team?

If you answered yes to any (or maybe all) of these questions, then you are in the right place.  The host of this podcast truly believes that “Football Is Family” and he is on a mission to share the stories of other fans out there sharing how they have been touched by the greatest sport on Earth.  Listen below to the trailer and learn more about the host and show.

Host – Jeremy McFarlin

Growing up in Middle Tennessee, I didn’t have a pro football team that was close enough to me to feel a part of.  My first memory of pro football was Super
Bowl 22.  I picked the Broncos to win, and, even though they didn’t win, I followed them from that point on.

John Elway was (and is) my favorite player.  I have played as the Broncos on Tecmo Bowl, Tecmo Bowl Super Bowl, Madden, and 2K Sports.  I fondly remember the moments when the Broncos won Super Bowls 32 and 33.

Around this time, the Oilers came to Tennessee. I was hooked. I finally had a team just down the road from my home town of Bon Aqua. Oiler (and later Titans) mania hit this area. Jerseys, hats, footballs, merchandise, and several autographs later, I’m a Titans fan through and through. 

That’s me with Titans great – Eddie George.

It’s the dedication, the love, and the passion for football that helps me realize that football is family. Each fan base has a story, a history, and a love for their team.  That’s what I want to talk about each and every podcast.
