    Of course. If the women takes the time to listen, then she is a keeper.

    I love sports. Football mainly grew out of basketball it's more about money then the talent lately. I try I really do when it comes to football, but it's like when I get one ruled drilled into my head something comes along to contradict it.

    It's hard to explain trust me bf and exbf, father cousins everyone tries. It's more of while we're watching it. Like one time forget who was playing we'll say the Bengals and the Ravens
    Ok QB throws to the endzone, let's say Ray catches it, now he catches it while his feet are in the air but he's over the endzone, TD right? The call had said he was out of bounds because his upper body landed out of bounds. I thought once your feet touched the endzone while ball was in hand it was a touchdown. Confusion!!!!!

    I'm not qualified to answer the guy question, but I understand sports largely because my brother took the time to make his little sister less annoying when sharing the TV. He explained the rules when I asked questions (most of the time) and, uh, the world is better off for it? Sure.

    If his feet touch the ground then it is a touchdown.

    If she needed explaining, then she's not a fan to begin with. In that situation, I wouldn't voluntarily offer my input. But if she asks, I'll gladly explain.

    Guys don't even explain sports to other guys, in my experience. I have four friends who play on my school's water polo team, and I have no idea how that game works.

    Well DM it's not the explaining of what is football it's the understanding of it with me. I mean I can sorta follow the game but the ref's make some ass backwards calls.

    I mean if she's like Danger what's a quarter-back? Stare at her, slowly turn back to the screen and ignore her until yer ready for bed. But if I said Danger...'Why did he make that call when you clearly saw....(whatever), then do I get input?

    He also has to have possesion of the ball. He can't be juggling it as he goes out of bounds.

    Respond to her the short stop, he has to pitch the ball to the goalie so the team skate around to catch the puck so the forward can slam the ball into the bat so the jockey and the horse can score, but only if the Harry Potter's broomstick can dodge the birdie. LOL

    The damn thing was tucked into his chest like a baby. It slipped from one hand to the other while he was still airborne but when his back hit turf it was secure.

    If he had possesion,and his feet were on the ground then it should have been called a touchdown.

    NFL, Both feet have to be in bounds.
    College, Only one foot has to be down in bounds.

    I've been with my current girlfriend for a little over a year and I've turned her from your basic "Huh? What's happening?" to, well, a sports fan. It was difficult to explain football, but baseball and basketball were easy to "teach." Now she's familiar with the players (even their numbers) and has even bought a few jersies for herself. *Excellent* (in best Mr. Burns voice)
