Football is back. College football on Saturday. NFL on Sunday, Monday, and Thursday. We’ve waited all summer for this! YESSSSSSSSS!!!!!
I wish I would’ve taken a picture of my setup yesterday. I moved my blanket, favorite chair, and footrest into the living room. I set up the living room coffee table to hold my food, drink, laptop, cellphone, and remote controls. I was READY! I had several windows open on my laptop – fantasy football leagues, pickem league, and TweetDeck for my live twitter feed of the first Sunday of the NFL. I WAS READY. The games are going, the live twitter feed of the different games are hilarious and on point. Best first Sunday of football!!!
Then I see this little gem float on down my timeline…
Today is “NATIONAL SHUT THE HELL UP DAY FOR WOMEN” ……Ladies u r not allowed to talk to your man while football is on!!! RT THIS ASAP

Really Kevin? REALLY?
I’m not here for any of that nonsense. NONE OF IT. There are soooo many things wrong with that. I know a lot of women who know and love football more than men. I’m not talking about the women who pick a team based on their colors or the team that has the best butts. Yes, I know some of them are out there, but you’d be surprised how many women are stepping up their football IQ. Heck, I’m in an all-women fantasy football league with 20 women and we go hard!!!
You’ve got women broadcasters, women on the field interviewing players and coaches – we’re out there. Lisa Salters, Pam Oliver, Michelle Tafoya. I can name sooo many women on Twitter/FaceBook who are about their sports – including football.
Seriously Kevin, you tweeted that during football. Maybe you should have shut the hell up and just watched the game. I turned down a date last Thursday because Peyton was playing. I took the day off on Thursday to make sure I wasn’t tired and ready to watch the kickoff to the season. And I wasn’t the only woman in that bar who was serious about her football.
The days of hush and go get me a sandwich and beer during the games are over. Unless its ME telling YOU to go warm up my wings and pour my vodka and cranberry.
I’m trying not to completely cross the height challenged comedian off my list. I just feel some type of way about it. And this isn’t just for him because of who he is. Men who have tried it will tell you I don’t play.
Don’t come for women and sports.
Just don’t do it.
