Are you ready for some Football!!

All right, sports fans, the regular football season starts Thursday night! Break out your team colors, ice down the beers, and plate up the nachos. 

My father used to say, “Any team can beat any other team on any given day.” As a New York Giants fan, I certainly know the truth of that, and so do the New England Patriots

The season starts all bright and shiny, no disappointing losses spoiling the win-loss column. The must-win games are in the future, the injuries taking out key players haven’t happened yet, and the weather hasn’t adversely impacted any games. 

We have “Did you see that?” moments in our future. We have “I can’t believe that just happened!” moments, for better or for worse. 

ESPN and NFL Network are on Sunday morning. Who am I kidding – ESPN is always on, every morning. is a great resource for score updates, stats, standings, and so much more. 

I wrote American Football Basics because I thought more women would enjoy football if they understood it. In my experience, it’s hard to get an explanation of something that just happened in the heat of the moment.

Throughout the season, I’ll post recipes for fan favorite foods – perfect for a tailgate party, whether at home or at the stadium.

Let me know if you have any football questions!
