Heels & Helmets is here!

Hello Ladies!

Welcome to Heels & Helmets! This weekly blog is your one stop for all things football... players, game and business. Just follow me and you'll be able to join the conversation at the office and surprise your sweetie at home! ;)

Now this isn't about becoming one of the guys. This is a resource to help you join in on the conversation when the guys talk about football. But, I am a lady and I'm not trading in my heels! So, I'm going to cover what's going on with the game and give other tips like good recipes for tailgating and of course where to find the best deals on fabulous heels!

Super Bowl XLIV is on! The New Orleans Saints and Indianapolis Colts are going to Miami. To kick things off, I’m going to do a two-week special and write every day to get you ready for the game. This week I will explain how the game is played. Next week I will discuss the strength and weaknesses of both Super Bowl teams, so you will be able to make an informed prediction on who will be the champs.

OK, let’s get started with where the game truly starts – the line of scrimmage. Football is played between two teams with the object being to score the most points. Each team has three units: offense (move the ball to score), defense (stop the other team from scoring) and special teams (handle all kicking situations). Each team can only have 11 players on the field at one time.

At the beginning of each play, the offense and defense line up facing each other at the line of scrimmage. This is the point where the quarterback calls his play and the defense prepares to stop them. The offense works to move beyond the line of scrimmage and the defense puts on pressure to force them to stay there. Each team wants to dominate the line of scrimmage.

Now tomorrow we’ll look at the offense side of this line.

Oh, if you are getting ready to head to Miami for Super Bowl Week, I saw the cutest accessories from Nordstrom. Shop online and they will give you 2.5% cash back and free shipping on orders more than $200. Let me know what you get!
