What a LOOOONG title, Jess! I know, but I had to fit in there what this post is all about, so you can decide how deep you want to delve into it.
Looking through my photo archives, this is apparently the only football-related pic I had. Velvet painting goodness.
I have been “watching” (read: tolerating) football my whole life, and I still know very little about it. I know touchdowns, I know line of scrimmage, I know the phrase “moving the chains” (thanks, SNL), but I don’t know what it means.
With that being said, I still enjoy a lot of things tangentially related to football. The fall weather, tailgating camaraderie, football OREOs!, shows, blogs and people who are wrapped up in football.
Here’s a few of my favorites:
♠ Kissing Suzy Kolber’s Fantasy Football and Sex Mailbag: great tips, not only about relationship/sex quandaries, but, you know, help with fantasy football.
♠ SB Nation knows everything about sports. I follow quite a few of the SB Nation guys on twitter (Matt Ufford, Jon Bois), and I can vouch that if you want to know anything about football, start here.
♠ There’s also Drew Magary at Deadspin, who is always hilarious.
♠ There’s also – delving into college football – Everyday Should Be Saturday. Spencer Hall recently wrote an excellent story on EDSBS about Herb Hand, someone I had no idea existed before last Saturday, but now have a touching story connecting me to him.
♠ Where would this list be without The League? It would be in a Yobagoya pile, that’s where.
♠ With Leather has tons of sports-related goodies, including MMA and wrestling nonsense.
