The NFL guesstimates that of the 313+ million people living in America, 90 million of them are “avid female football fans.” That’s 44% of the total fan base. What is it about the NFL that creates so many “avid” fans of U.S. women? We can point to the adorably bedazzled...

NEW UNI DAY IS COMING!!! The anticipation was great, the build-up greater, the unveiling? Sort of snooze worthy.
