Previously: See my 2004 football season layouts here and here.

Stats: I designed a little card with the season win-loss record, the name of the coach, and the names of the quarterbacks.  I’ve been including this information on my football pages since I started going to games in 2000 and it adds great context.

Lots of Newspaper: Every year I decide to save different things.  This year I had a lot of newspaper articles to work with.  I spaced them throughout the pages and they cover some very key events.  Hindsight is always fabulous because I already know that these articles would have big implications a few years later.

Write in the Dates: When I use newspaper articles, somewhere around the article I’ll write the date in very small writing.  It’s probably the archivist in me, but I like to have record of when the piece was published.

Vertical Stripes: I added some flair by cutting eighth-inch stripes out of blue, gold, and white cardstock and glued them down the side of the page.  I like how it adds a little something without being distracting.

That’s it, a whopping 4 layouts for the season (not including the Big Game, that will come later!).
