One of our philosophies here at Football Bettys is that no matter what type of football fan you are- die hard, casual or "I just love football parties"- we accept you and love you for your own brand of fandome. For those of you who aren't die hards but want to learn more about the game, we found a really great article that explains it: "The Beginner's Guide to Loving Football: Who, What, Why? Touchdown!" on Fix.
As you can see, Fix created custom illustrations for those of us who are visual learners!
The article also explains 12 basic football terms like Hail Mary, safety and down. You can now watch the final games of the season, including the Super Bowl on February 5th, and have a basic knowledge about the game and not be the delayed clapper or whoop whoop-er that are the dead giveaways of a person who knows nothing about football!
We like this "how to pick your team" graphic
Other topics include Fantasy Football, offense positions and how to play a game of touch football. Read the entire article, A Beginner's Guide to Loving Football, on Fix.com
Finally, Fix says, "Football is more than just a game. It brings people together and offers a way to bond with friends and strangers alike. The next time someone invites you to watch a game, say yes. If all else fails, at least there will be delicious food." and we couldn't agree more!
