Over at One Fun Mom: Redeeming TV events for community

cheerleader 2 Today I have a post up over at One Fun Mom, where I'm talking about how we can take something as iconic in pop culture as a big TV sports event and use it as a catalyst for meaningful community connection. My husband's team lost last week (and our family/hometown team was out the week before), but that doesn't mean we won't be gathering for the big game on February 2nd.

From the post: 

That big football game is coming up, and while some of you may not tend to care about it all that much, I’m here to invite you to reconsider.

I always enjoy it for the most part– the commercials are entertaining, it gives me a reason to indulge in yummy snacks, and oh yeah, there’s football! Now I may be a pretty sporty girl, but the reason why I get excited about this particular event isn’t because of the game itself, no matter how thrilling it may be.  Rather, it’s because whether my home team is playing or not, it’s a great opportunity to gather with friends and family.
