How To Become An NFL Fan

By Liz Panucci // @ourturffb

Have you often wondered what the hype is all about? Do friends disappear from your life a few months every fall? Is it coincidence? That’s when the NFL season starts.

Well, we are here to help! Below are quick steps to get you feeling comfortable during the NFL season, which kicks off Thursday, September 7 and ends the season with the final BIG game, Super Bowl, happening February 4, 2018 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Do you live in a city that has an NFL team? If so, being a ‘homer’ is the best choice.

If not, do you have a favorite city out of the 32 NFL teams? Then choose that team.

Arizona, Atlanta, Baltimore, Buffalo, Carolina (Charlotte), Chicago, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Green Bay, Houston, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Kansas City, Los Angeles (has 2 teams), Miami, Minnesota (Minneapolis), New England (Boston), New Orleans, New York (has 2 teams), Oakland, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, San Francisco, Seattle, Tampa Bay, Tennessee (Nashville), Washington (DC)

Quick 5 with Shannon Sanchez, Football 101

Come chat Football 101 with me // @ShannonSanchez3

NF: Where did you learn about football – When? and from Who?

SS: I was around 9 when I started getting very interested in football.  My mother taught me the basics and my father taught me the strategies of the game.  It became the thing that bonded us together, Sunday football was the father/daughter time.  And are some of my dearest memories of my father.

NF: Priorities of Life – What are your top 3?

SS: 1)  Jesus  2)  My family  3) This one is very hard, many things vie for third place – friends, the causes we support ( fighting human trafficking is a very passionate cause we put time and money into), making memories…

NF: If you had any job in the world – what would it be, and why?

SS: I can’t choose just one, sorry…

I would love to teach the Bible to high school and college students

I would love to work for non-profits who fight human trafficking (IJM or A21)

I would love to write a book

I would love to be a stand-up comic

Football Movie Marathon Time

By Marcela Vargas // @ethne88

We’re a month away from the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game and the return of football-infused days and nights. With a few weekends left until we can put our jerseys back on to cheer for our teams, I have devised a mini-marathon of football related movies to enjoy with your fellow NFL fans.

(Also, this marks my first cinematic contribution to NFLFemale. I’ll be reviewing movies about football once a week for as long as I can find them.)

Remember the Titans (2000)

A family classic! Set in 1960’s Virginia, this movie stars Denzel Washington as Herman Boone, an African American football coach set with the task of leading a recently integrated high school team in small town Alexandria. The newly-formed Titans face a tough season, but also the need to overcome fear, ignorance, and hatred in order to become a real football team. It’s a feel-good movie –produced by Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer– and includes performances by Will Patton, Hayden Panettiere, and a young Ryan Gosling.

Show Me What Ya Got

By Sonja Greenfield @Mom23RN

February 28 – March 6

The COMBINE!! (Or Underwear Olympics)

One of my favorite offseason events.   It’s always fun to armchair GM to see who potentially is going to change the face of your franchise.  Personally, I enjoy it because I love watching the players do their drills.  I don’t know why…I guess I’m just weird that way!  Plus, I enjoy listening to the analysts break down what they’re looking for and who has a good motor and good hands or who’s got a good backpedal.   You know…The details!

It certainly has evolved over the years, and now that it’s televised, it’s pretty cool.    So much like my other articles throughout the season, I will post my big winner and my not big winner of the combine.   Of course, you can feel free to disagree.  I mean, there were 330 players there, and I’m only picking 2.  OK fine, I’ll pick 3.  It is the Underwear Olympics.  You have to have a gold, silver and bronze.
