If you’re a big fan of American Football, you might well be biding your time for that golden moment when the NFL can once again grace your screens and your free time is filled with things to do again. However, while watching all the games you can is a great way to pass the season, you might be interested in other ways to make this season one to remember.

Due to the season kicking off right around where summer ends, it actually serves as the perfect transitional phase. Your time in summer may well be full of seasonal pastimes such as barbecues and holidays, so being able to fill the calendar of the darker months with something fresh is always a plus. If nothing else, it gives you something to look forward to after summer closes upshop.

Play Some Games with Your Friends

This might be a concept that you’re familiar with due to occasions such as Thanksgiving providing you with an opportunity to throw the ball around with your friends and family. However, whenever such a time rolls around, you might find yourself feeling as though it would be nice to have a more dedicated session that you can all enjoy. Well, provided that you have a network of friends or family who are willing to play the game, you can do this whenever you’re all available – and the opportunity for you all to put time aside to exercise might prove to be very beneficial for your health.

Unfortunately, not everyone has this kind of time, and you might find that the physical demands that such an activity makes of a person might not be met by those you spend time with for whatever reason. While this might be disappointing, this isn’tthe end of the road. Thanks to the wonders of advancing technology, you can all enjoy the game of American Football while sitting on your sofa at home, through the means of video games such as Madden – which are released yearly by EA. 

Whichever you decide to do, having a chance to enjoy your hobby while spending time with your loved ones can allow you to perhaps enjoy both to an even higher degree.

Get in on the Action


Sometimes, when you’re watching a football game, you’re not content to simply be rooting for your team – you want to be more personally involved. While this isn’t always going to be possible to the extent that you’re hoping for, there is certainly something that you can do to scratch that itch.

Betting on NFL games with OddsShark can allow you to immerse yourself further in the action, feeling higher stakes than ever before while also having a good time doing it. 

If the game that you’re betting on happens to fall on a weekend or an evening that you have to yourself, you can even take it as an opportunity to let yourself unwind fully, indulging in other similar joys such as a beer or ordering some food in.
