12 Things Girls Who Watch Football Are Tired Of Hearing
Emma Clune

Ah, football season - the time of greasy food, profane language, and obnoxious screaming. For some reason, over the past 49 years, football has evolved into a sport that has been dominated by male fans. As a huge football fan, and a female, I can confidently say that there are plenty of girls out there who care just as much about their team as the guys do, and there are some comments and questions we are just plain tired of hearing.

1. "So do you actually understand what's going on?"

No, I just like to watch them run back and forth so I can pretend like I know what's going on, *she says sarcastically*.

2. "Do you only like that team because your dad does?

I have to admit you aren't wrong, but who said I couldn't switch if I ever wanted to? (which I won't, but nice try.)

3. "Could you go grab *insert food or drink item*, you weren't watching anyway."

Yeah, that's a joke, right?

4. "Name 5 players on the team then."

Okay, probably the easiest question you could ask me, but what would you do if I failed? Ban me from watching football forever?

5. "Do you only watch football for attention or do you actually like it?"

Yes, I waste multiple hours on a Sunday sitting alone in my dorm room watching a football game just to get attention.

6. "Have you ever been to an actual football game?"

Multiple actually, but even if I hadn't...who cares?!

7. "Do you really know the rules though?"

Yes, and I can probably give you a definition of off-sides, pass interference, automatic first down, Hail Mary, shall I continue?

8. "You don't look like you'd be into football."

Thank you, I was unaware I had to look a certain way to partake in watching an American pastime.

9. "Which player do you think is the hottest?"

It's impossible to deny that there are attractive football players, but why does it matter which one is the absolute cutest?!

10. "Do you need me to explain what just happened to you?"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F27%2F636131980279664689-1843168429_minaj.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=306&h=b4959789f0a47fd806af2fd6210036ea4f2e40c2015c2d28a28c48fe88509d7a&size=980x&c=3869885479 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F27%252F636131980279664689-1843168429_minaj.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D306%26h%3Db4959789f0a47fd806af2fd6210036ea4f2e40c2015c2d28a28c48fe88509d7a%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3869885479%22%7D" expand=1]

Thanks, but no thanks. How many times should I tell you I can very much follow the game myself?

11. "Are you going to freak out if your team loses?"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F27%2F636131882964496651112768606_himym.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=670&h=d522bde7848a385c1cc4c673e722139bb2d01027b8d2713bed41f1eb0c3cb9a0&size=980x&c=1589308154 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F27%252F636131882964496651112768606_himym.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D670%26h%3Dd522bde7848a385c1cc4c673e722139bb2d01027b8d2713bed41f1eb0c3cb9a0%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1589308154%22%7D" expand=1]

Probably a little bit, but aren't you too? I think I can control myself, thanks for the concern.

12. "Wow, so you actually aren't a fake football fan."

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F27%2F6361319988938949061211316505_friends.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=198&h=25f2da4748f697b3f1816be2d73c03ea97d583c3366064ab9acdf7a12cdbb4d2&size=980x&c=1237668901 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F27%252F6361319988938949061211316505_friends.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D198%26h%3D25f2da4748f697b3f1816be2d73c03ea97d583c3366064ab9acdf7a12cdbb4d2%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1237668901%22%7D" expand=1]

Yes, thank you, because I definitely needed your approval.

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.
