14 Pets That Are Ready for Some Football! (Photos)

Note: You’re supposed to read that headline in a Hank Williams, Jr. voice, even though he’s been axed from ESPN’s Monday Night. Whatevs. You get the idea.

Anyway, college football is underway. The NFL season 2012-13 kicks off tomorrow (Wednesday), with the Dallas Cowboys playing at the New York Giants. The NFL season brings tons of quality family time our way, especially since my husband’s a Giants fan, I’m an Eagles fan, and my parents are Cowboys fans. We all vie for the kids’ loyalties.

So far two of the kids are Eagles fans and two are Giants fans. Thank God, none of them is a Cowboys fan, although I suspect that’ll be how one of them will rebel as a teenager.

We also try to sway our cats, but one of them is deaf and cares about this stuff even less than most cats, and the other one has decided he’s only into NCAA football. So there goes that.

Enjoy these pets that are ready for some football!

    This is so not a political statement. It's just that I couldn't find any photos of Gov. Romney with a dog that didn't also involve a crate on top of the car. Which is a shame, because I'm sure Romney's dog is super into tailgating parties.
