Three boys, one dog, one chinchilla…Sometimes, you just have to STOP…and Count To Ten.

**GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED**  Winner has been notified (Congratulations Christy!)


We FINALLY flew back home from our trip to North Carolina on July 11th, and I just KNEW that I had to make a stop to Walmart.  The new NCAA Football 13 game was released on July 10th and Eli has been waiting…and waiting…  He was SO good helping out on our trip, how could I NOT get him this game?

Once in Walmart, my hubby and I could quickly find the game.  (this guy running out of the game case was JUST a little hint!)

After we got out our game from the case, we had to pick up one more important surprise for Eli.  EA sports also launched a program called You’re Covered Facebook app.  This program lets you put your gamers’ photo on the cover and allows you to print it at home OR at Walmart.

You can see our shopping trip and see how EASY it is to make your own cover by clicking HERE.

If you haven’t played this game before and don’t know WHY you need NCAA Football 13 if you already have NCAA Football 1, here’s some of the newest features:

Heisman Challenge—Win it for your school as you play as one of 10 former Heisman Trophy winners under center, in the backfield, or split wide, see if you can utilize his legendary skills for your favorite college team in a quest to match his award-winning historical performances and win the Heisman Trophy once again.   Choose from the following former Heisman greats:
·         Robert Griffin III
·         Doug Flutie
·         Herschel Walker
·         Marcus Allen
·         Charlie Ward
·         Barry Sanders
·         Desmond Howard
·         Eddie George
·         Carson Palmer
·         Andre Ware

An All-New Passing Game—A revolutionary passing system brings added authenticity to the Quarterback position from ball trajectory to play action pass to the option. Enhanced receiver control puts you in position to make a play on the ball and new read and react defensive coverage delivers greater realism on the gridiron.

Reaction Time—Great players see and feel the game differently. With Reaction Time, the game slows down during key moments, increasing your on-field awareness and opening up more opportunities as you sense things before they happen.

Dynamic Dynasty—Recruiting goes deeper than ever with the addition of dynamic recruiting pitches. For the first time ever, your recruiting grades can change each week based on your performance in Dynasty mode. In addition, Gameday Saturdays come to life with live studio updates and enhanced commentary by Rece Davis.

OK…all that information is just going to make Eli crazy about this new game!
