Women Love Football Too

Football is proverbially seen as a man’s sport, an excuse to get together with the guys and drink until the final touchdown. While men do seem to be the most common demographic (perhaps they can relate to the idea of men knocking each other unconscious and screaming) there are many women that do actually enjoy the game. This is not simply referring to women who tolerate the Super Bowl parties and serve up BBQ wings to the army of NFL fans walking through the door. These are actually female fans that keep track of the score, root for the home team and would kick the average guy’s butt when it comes to organizing a Super Bowl party.

What is to explain this phenomenon and why don’t more women enjoy football? Realize that some sports parties are characterized by gender bonding. If men want to hang out with their friends then, nothing personal, they may not warm up to the idea of a wife or girlfriend crashing the party. The UFABET ลิ้งค์ทางเข้า man may even fear that the women will bring an awkward energy to the event, such as criticizing some guy-like staples or focusing on the negative aspects of football. The man may be afraid of such a scenario and attempt to keep the game as mysterious and unwomanly as possible.

However, some guys are open to the idea of their spouse joining in on the Sunday fun, especially if she is a natural follower and enjoys watching a good show. The woman may warm up to sports in an effort to bond with her spouse or to make more friends. They may find exhilaration in showing the team spirit, having the common enemy and foe as their mate. When you think about it, football is a rather operatic sport; at once an expression of primal human emotion and a gladiatorial battle between giants. People live vicariously though these sports figures, and so both men and women find human aspiration thrilling and maybe even inspiring.

Then of course there are women who just love football for the same reason that men do-because it’s fun, because they enjoy making predictions and cheering on their favorite teams, and because they’ve watched every Super Bowl since 1975. Men are not the only ones who can become obsessive over sports. There are some female NFL experts out there who can feel the same rush of adrenaline that comes from watching Tom Brady throw a game-winning pass. Everybody loves a good competition and football is America’s most competitive game, with the most passionate of fans. It is at once, a patriotic event (watch the city of Atlanta be humbled by Dallas, while New York feuds with Green Bay) and a riveting thriller involving real life heroes and villains who grab that ball for dear life.
