A few years ago I was bamboozled into joining a fantasy football league and I named my team Pigskins and Stilettos. I thought it was the greatest name ever. Why do I say bamboozled? Well because I knew absolutely nothing about football and my friend knew that and tried to use it to his advantage. I was told what players to pick, and when to make trades, to him of course. Eventually uproar ensued. People felt that I was being taken advantage of, well of course I was, I knew nothing about football. Eventually, I turned to a friend for some outside help, and managed rank higher than my cheating friend.
Six years later, I still know nothing about football. Well, I do know that the players look good in spandex, but that’s all I have. On those days that football is played, my Twitter timeline and Facebook stream are littered with football talk. That’s usually when I log off.
Women love football. Plenty of my girlfriends are on fantasy leagues and attend games on the regular. I think I have more girlfriends that are into football than guy friends. I’ve seen everything from fingernails with NFL logos on them, lady NFL jerseys but my favorite are the women who actively participate in the tailgate parties.
After years of attending college games, watching football with boyfriends, and even having a good friend who’s a NFL agent, I just can’t get into. But, I will watch the Superbowl, well just the Half-Time Show, everything else I can as highlights on ESPN.
Clutchettes, Are you into football? Who’s your team? When/how did you get into it?
