Xs and Os: Those white marks on the field

Every stadium is different, but the field is always marked the same excluding any team logos and colors on the field.  Every field is the same size and shape and has:


End Line and Sideline: the outer boundaries of the playing field






End Zone: 10-yard areas at each end of the field used for scoring


Goal Line: beginning boundary of the End Zone that extends across the width of the field; cross this line for a Touchdown


Yard Line Markers: on both Sidelines, each yard is marked; every 5 yards is a solid line across the field; numbers are placed every 10 yards


Hash Marks: After each play, the ball is brought to the nearest Hash Mark for the next play

Happy Gameday

Snack on the Stadium

With bowl week upon us, I felt it "important" to re-publish October's Snack Stadiums post.  Snack Stadiums strike me as the uber-appropriate addition to a holiday gameday party.  Whip one up in the next couple weeks or start planning for a Super Bowl Snack Stadium.  Enjoy!


You are going to love this gallery of football stadiums made of  enough food for the entire party.  Holy Taco gives you the instructions to  create this beauty, complete with the dip field.  Click here for the instructions.



Now this is the time I should let you know that there is an entire website  dedicated to these pieces of edible art/architecture/engineering feat.   www.snackadium.com.  I am not making this up!   Here's what you'll see over there:



The Old Try

The regular season is over and it's time to start thinking about the season (aka bowl season).  Don't forget to check out past Gameday Style posts for more great gift ideas.
First up, is The Old Try.  I purchased this print a few months ago for my home that's trying hard to raise two gentlemen...

The Old Try has some Gameday Style in a subtle, fun and classy way.  Subtle, because you may not know what some of these designs are referring to, unless you're a devoted fan of one of these Southern schools.
