With the NFL football season under way, football "widows" everywhere will be ignored and / or cast aside, while their significant others turn into football "zombies". You've no doubt hear the old expression, "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em?"
And why not? With the millions of fans (women included) that football already has, there must be something to this game, right? Don't understand the game? Let's face it, if you don't understand something, you're probably not going to enjoy it very much, and football is no exception. Bottom line....football really isn't that complicated. Sure, it does have its own "lingo". But learning football is no different than learning a new language and it takes time to learn. Tried asking your significant other questions about football? Forget it. Particularly when the game is on; you may as well be talking to the wall.
How about forming a "football club"? Women only, of course. You can watch the games together and pick each other's brains. Remember, there's safety in numbers. Read whatever you can, i.e., on the internet, books, magazines, newspapers, etc. Most of all, be patient! It's not going to happen overnight. Trust me, in the end it will all be worth it.
