Football, Football, Football!

footballs on a fieldFootball season is here! At least that’s what the radio tells me. This morning while I was sitting in traffic, I quickly noticed that every single station was discussing opening weekend, speculating on how the Texans will do this season, or finalizing fantasy football teams. I admit, this wasn’t my favorite thing to listen to during my commute, but it did get me thinking about movies. I may not be the world’s (or even the library’s) biggest football fan, but I do like good football movies. They make me think of fall and marching bands, team spirit and hot dogs, and standing on the bleachers at

college, cheering on my team.

If you are in the mood for a football flick, browse the HCPL catalog and request a movie today!

Let's Hear it for the Tie!

Okay, perhaps my wearing the Texas A&M tie on Saturday did not have anything to do with Aggies scoring a major upset over 21st ranked Texas Tech! Still, sports fans are full of superstitions and I am willing to wear the A&M tie every Aggie game for the rest of the year as long as they keep winning.

Where Has Aggie Football Gone?

Shakespeare once said “Tickle us, do we not laugh? Prick us, do we not bleed maroon?” Okay, maybe those weren’t his exact words but no Aggie would disagree with that translation. And, I am definitely a proud fightin’ Texas Aggie!

Glory on the Gridiron

It's hard to tell summer is soon coming to an end. The trees are still green, the weather is still hot, and the pool still beckons. Regardless, we know autumn is fast approaching because that great American tradition is back again - football. Yes, dust off those shoulder pads, shoes, and helmets for another exciting season. Or maybe you'd rather pull up a chair next to the TV.  Whether you're a participant or a fan, these books will help you get into the spirit of the game.
