The 2013 NFL season has arrived! Players and coaches reported to training camps all over the country. The teams get together, start getting to know each other again, play catch and practice. What makes this the best news of the week is that it means the kickoff to the season is just around the corner. In the past, ladies may have dreaded this time of year because, traditionally, you lose your man as he becomes infatuated with football. Not this year! I will provide you a guideline to football so you can appreciate the game, its players and your obsessed man.
1. The kickoff to the 2013 season is Thursday, September 5 on NBC, Baltimore Ravens at Denver Broncos. Some might say this is a preview of the AFC Conference match up to determine the AFC team in the 2013 Super Bowl. It will be interesting to see how the Ravens defense fills the gigantic shoes of recently retired Ray Lewis. Denver fans will be looking to Peyton Manning to exploit its holes.

2. NFL jerseys are on sale now. Is your man’s birthday soon? Or, a ‘let’s celebrate the start of a fun NFL season together’ gift? They also come in women’s sizes with cute, tighter cuts so you can still feel sexy while rooting on your man’s team at the bar or in the bedroom…have you heard that the NFL mesh jersey is the new lingerie?
This leads me to the final discussion point for this post:
3. Fantasy football leagues are starting to develop. Girls, if you learn that your man’s fantasy league needs a team (because all leagues need an even number of teams) go for it! Most leagues are managed by a computer based program which makes it so easy. Being involved will keep you invested in the games each week and if you beat your man, there is nothing better than bragging rights. Regardless, Fantasy Football drafts are usually scheduled on Labor Day weekend. Please do not make any plans without first checking with your man to avoid disappointment.
Hopefully this is a start to turning around your football feelings this season.
