Not me! I have absolutely no interest in football despite the constant tries from my family. I usually do my grocery shopping during big games as I know the stores will be empty. My daughter is hoping that I will watch with her. She plans to watch even though her illustrious Eagles did not make the cut yet again. Will this year be different?
Probably not but at least I now know and understand some of the lingo thanks to VF Castro the author of “The Modern Girls Guide to the Gridiron” This book is a comprehensive guide of all things football for women. Written from the perspective of a woman, I love how she not only sets out to increase your knowledge of the game but also adds the historical perspective as well. For instance, did you know,… the NFL came to be in 1970 following the merger of the NFL and the AFL. A lot of people are under the impression that 1970 is when the Super Bowl was born, but the first Super Bowl was actually played on January 15, 1967, following the '66 season. Super Bowl I was played at the historic Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, where the Green Bay Packers beat the Kansas City Chiefs, 35-10. You can be the hit of any Superbowl party with these historical facts.
Imagine how excited your son and/or husband will be when you call plays and even scream at the television citing bad referee calls. Each chapter of this book provides this and so much more. What I love even more are the game-day fashion tips. Glad to know that a team jersey is not required but you should at least show up in the team colors.
Are you ready for some football? Tell me your favorite team for a chance to win a copy of the book.
