There’s no such thing as a wrong way to celebrate a new football season. If you and the people around you have a good time and enjoy the game then you’ve done it right. One of the best ways to immerse yourself in the sport and burn off the calories you consumed watching the first half is playing a friendly game of football during halftime or before the game. Two on two makes for just as much fun as a game between two full teams, and a quick turn tossing the old pigskin will build comradery as well as remind everyone why they love football.
