Did you know that 43% of all football fans are us "girls".  That's right, amazing isn't it.  What's more amazing is the fact that just now has there been a movement in the football gear we are supposed to wear.  I can't tell you the endless number of xmas and birthday gifts with my teams(skins) logo on it that the first thought that comes to my mind is " Guess I am wearing that potato sack to bed". I mean, really.

How challenging is it to support our favorite teams and still resemble a shapely woman? VERY.  I know I get the sideways looks in pre-season and September games because of my choice of footwear.  It's hot, so I want to wear my open-toe high heel strappy sandals and show my painted toes, another myth dispelled about girls that follow the game.  It doesn't get any better in the winter months, as my choice moves to the stilletto knee high boots much to the chagrin of my boyfriend.  In my defense, I always manage to point out to him a few of the other women (you know who you 3 are) that are wearing them as well.

They kicked off this whole craze with the "pink" jerseys which led to gold, butter yellow and for god sake's sparkles.  Bottom line, they all are ridiculous.  My team is NOT pink or sparkly, get rid of them.  I can see if there was a purpose behind some of them, maybe all proceeds going to Breast Cancer Research, but it's gotten out of control.  The next lame attempt was some strings sewn together over one shoulder in your teams colors, have you seen these? thumbs down, if I want to go braless it's going to be in BCBG or BEBE, not to a stadium with thousands of over intoxicated men  who think they are Joe Namath reincarnated.

I've often been in the ladies room line watching, taking fashion notes but mostly feeling sorry for the majority of jersey girls hanging to their knees, two sizes too big, tennis shoes that look like they mowed the grass in and the ever loving baseball cap.  It's not your fault, the choices are slim to none, we know.  It's not a fashion runway but we can still try to appear feminine. That ticket doesn't give us a free pass to look sloppy. 

Hopefully the nike, reeboks, and nflshop.com's of the world are listening. Give us some options!

If she's a true MILF she shouldn't care about the clothes, she'll just want to get a look at that pay stub of yours.


Ya, but I want my wife to like her too.  WE have to have choice.

Tell ya what gal, you can have your variety of apparel if us guys get two things...more than 2 options on pants and more than 4 options in shirts at JCPenney.  If they all suck, I have to wear the same junk I did the year before, not cool when I am trying to hit on the pink clad, high heeled, MILF.

Big E-

Having two daughters myself, I feel your pain. However, she should know she has made a great statement in being a true fan with NO FLUFF needed.  The pinkies will fade out like all fads do then she wouldn't wear it because it was PINK.

And your last statement rings so true...fine example you are settin there! lol.

Funny thing is...since the Super Bowl, my daughter has been wanting a pink Eli Manning jersey.
Unable to find one in any store, or any decently priced ones on-line, she relented and we're getting her a blue one.

I'm just happy she was into the Super Bowl.

Great first blog, keep up the good work....

It's called imagination...we need to use it more to dictate our fashion statement, rather then having some designer dictate it to us....

Next season...my two size (or 3 size) too big jersey will cover a tiny little black slip dress, the jersey will be belted and will be accompanied with either the strappy sandle or the pump and appropriate colored stockings...along with the appropriate accessories....

And I refuse to wear pink.

You made some very good points!  My wife ways the same things!  She is a huge Bears fan and has to shop in the childrens department to find a jersey that fits.
