Football season looms. Come August, the NFL starts its pre-season games. And there will continue to be football, football, and more football until the merciful conclusion of the NFL season with the February Super Bowl.
Unfortunately, the game of football looks to you pretty much like a mega-sale at Wal-Mart.
Surely you've noticed those great outfits football players wear? Why, over the course of the season, you'll see jerseys in every glorious hue you can think of.
There are the Giants blue jerseys that match that cute pair of slacks you got for your birthday. And the Jets and Packers have that adorable green that matches your eyes.
Not to mention the Dolphins terrific teal (or is it turquoise?), Which might lead you to spring for a set of contacts.
And the Ravens and the Raiders do some wonderful things with that sexy old standby, basic black.
But what has that got to do with you?
In the spirit of 'if you can not beat them, join them,' get yourself one of those cool NFL jerseys.
Pick one for your lover's favorite team. Or one to match your hair. Or to complement those stiletto heels you bought to spice up your anniversary.
By the way, here's a tip: if you're not inviting the gang in to watch the game, and there's just gonna be the two of you, you might consider limiting your attire to the stilettos and a killer jersey. Just a thought.
And even if the gang's all there to watch the game at your house, while it may be prudent to add a pair of jeans to your ensemble, you can still slip into the NFL jersey of your choice.
Then try slouching seductively down onto the sofa amid all that cheering (or sobbing, as the case may be), and you will immediately look like someone who knows a thing or two about the game of football.
See? You're immediately a part of the gang. And you have not said a word. In fact, if your knowledge of the game of football is truly sub-par, silence is probably a good option.
Because if you've chosen your NFL jersey in just the right color and size, your knowledge of football may well become near the point.
