NFL- kNowledge Females Lack

Today, in addition to being the 10th anniversary of 9/11 was also opening day for the NFL. I LOVE football season, you can literally smell the pigskin in the air. Or maybe I love the things that come with it including the weather, the food, tailgates, and I definitely love the games (especially if it is a team that I truly love).

Growing up in a football family, both of my brothers have played football since they were 4 and I have been a team mom’s assistant since I was about 10. However I just recently came to the realization that in spite of the number of games and practices that I attended, I have never actually bothered to learn the ins and outs of the game.

So I have made this seasons goal to actually learn what all the men are talking about. I no longer want to contribute to the countless number of women yelling at the team that their boyfriend likes or asking questions after every play. So far, I have managed to learn the majority of positions on the field and now I am working on being able to keep up with the game without getting lost.

You have to remember, most men have been doing this their whole lives and I really feel like its similar to learning another language…..I WILL get there. Bare with me people.

I say all that to say this, women….let’s get it together and know what we’re talking about so we can form our own opinions. Either way whether I know the terms or I don’t…I’m still Team Eagles!
