Are You A Football Girl?

Our view at Purdue
I have loved football for as long as I can remember. On autumn Sundays, I was the kid hoping church would be over quickly, that mom would cook instead of us going out to eat, and that I'd get to the TV room first. I didn't care much who was playing, I just wanted to watch the hitting and the passing and the dancing that happens when a receiver is trying to elude a defender.

This week, I'm celebrating football in the spring with the release of my new book, Protecting the Quarterback, and I'm sharing three of my favorite football stadiums.

The view at Arrowhead
3. Arrowhead - I'm a Missouri girl, people. Not necessarily a Kansas City Chiefs fan, but I've been to my share of games there. It's a fun stadium ~ especially when the fans get loud!

2. Paul Brown Stadium - say what you will about the Cincinnati Bengals...their stadium is beautiful!
On the banks of a river, in one of the few downtowns where you can still walk around without worrying (too much) about being mugged or worse. We were season ticket holders when we first moved to Ohio, so I've made the trek there many times - the staff is great, the food is good and that helps make it hurt less when the Bengals bungle.

1. Purdue University ~ college football is (I think) the best thing. Ever. The excitement of the kids, the fact that the players are playing for the game not the money (I like my illusions that money comes after college...don't kill them for me!)...there is just something about walking up the hill to the stadium store, listening to the chatter of fans, watching the college kids and then yelling and screaming and yelling some more. Oh, and I think it's hilarious that the male cheerleaders have to do push-ups in the end zone after every score. Their arms have to be *burning* after the game!

Are you a football fan? Are you holding your breath until training camp and the first game of the season?

Kristina Knight's new book, Protecting the Quarterback, is available now wherever books are sold. Here's a peek:

This is more than just a game...to her 
Sports broadcaster Brooks Smith has always been more involved with the game than the players. But after she shares the spotlight at an awards ceremony with tabloid sensation Jonas Nash, one night of letting her guard down around the infamous quarterback spirals into many heated days and nights together when she gets assigned to the story of the year…

The hottest player in professional football is hiding a secret that could end his career for good. Now Brooks is caught on the sidelines between the job she loves and the man she is falling in love with.
