Have I mentioned that I'm still on a high from the Back To Football photo shoot last week in NYC? Part of the high is because of the cool people I met and hung out while in NYC. This was the first year that the NFL and Nike have done something like this and I must say that they could not have picked a better group of fans! We all bonded instantly, represented our teams well, and just had a blast together. We've even said how we look at games differently now, because when we see a team, we see each other (and we even call each other by our team names. Sappy, I know, but true!) It really is true that football brings people together. Here are a few more behind-the-scenes photos (sorry guys! Most of you had already finished your photos by the time we got there.).

The next day we visited the NFL Headquarters to attend a Fan Forum with Roger Goodell with special guests Chad Pennington, Willie Roaf, and Gale Sayers, where we got a chance to ask Commissioner Goodell questions.

That night we were VIP guests at the NFL Kickoff Concert featuring Mariah Carey and No Doubt.
Rockefeller Plaza was absolutely beautiful for the concert and Viewing Party for the Cowboys/Giants game. The Viewing Party was held right after the concert and had lots of food, beverages, people, and fun.

This experience was truly amazing and I can't wait to see my NFL family again! I can't thank the NFL and Nike enough for this opportunity and for bring this great group of NFL fans together.
