In honor of the Super Bowl next weekend, can you guys each share a lesson from football that women can apply to their relationships? If you were coaching ladies for the Super Bowl of relationships, what would be your (short!) pep talk/#1 piece of advice in the locker room?
Girls' BFF says:
Here's the Panama Jackson rule to relationships using football lingo:
You don't have to score on the first play of every game. The best way to win for the long haul is to focus on the short game and first downs. Move the chains. The more first downs you have, the longer you have the ball, the closer you get to scoring. Focus on the game plan and don't give the ball over all willy nilly. And mostly, realize that you can't win without the ball. What does that have to do with anything? Nothing. But it's true.
Always go for the sack.
Mystery Man says:
What's this Superbowl thing again? You guys have some really weird customs. My advice though: "A good player will always go for the touchdown once he gets into your end zone."
Chic Geek says:
Football is the one with the round ball, right? Or is that "bases ball"?
Actually, love is more like "Calvinball," the sport Calvin and Hobbes used to play. It's crazy and unpredictable, but also follows a sort of beautiful logic. The rules may constantly change (and sometimes you might get tackled by a tiger) but ultimately if you keep at it and play to win, you'll come out on top.
Gal Pal says:
Sometimes the best moments happen in-between the main events - in love and in Super Bowl commercials.
