I sat on the beach watching my small people toss the football back and forth with my husband during our vacation last year and FINALLY decided I was tired of being a spectator. I have spent so many hours sitting and watching them play, confident that my un-athleticism had permanently delegated me to the sidelines, but at that moment, something shifted. It isn’t my family that has kept me out of play, but rather, my fear of getting in the game.
Knowing me as many of you do, it may be hard to believe that within 30 minutes – and with some one-on-one coaching that included ‘line your fingers up with the laces’ and ‘toss the football with your body, not just your arm’, I was able to throw a perfect spiral more than fifty feet…. That, for me, is impressive. But the magic comes with playing with my family and playing FOOTBALL with my family.
Add another 10 minutes and the small dude had full-body tackled me to the sand. I did ask to play, right?
I have long loved the game of football. I learned the sport by watching it with my dad as a little girl. My love of the game hasn’t waned as I have grown up. I am not a ‘watch-the-Super-Bowl-for-the-commercials-football-girl’. I truly enjoy the sport. And I understand the game.
And I know there are other women just like me….who appreciate the sport, love their team, enjoy going to the games and truly supporting their team.
So, do the St. Louis Rams. That’s why they have the Lady Rams – an organization offering exclusive access to Rams Events, merchandise, and this year extra special gifts.
As you may know, my family was honored to work with the St. Louis Rams last year on their commercial campaign and it ranks as one of the greatest things we have ever done…not only supporting a team we love, but a shared experience as a family.
This year, I’m thrilled to be back working with the team again, but this time supporting women and football as an ambassador for the Lady Rams.
Here is what I love about the Lady Rams:
Team Support – joining the Lady Rams means being surrounded by other women who love the same team you do. Some know more about the game, the players, the history of the team….so know less. It is an opportunity to learn and enjoy the sport.
New Friends – the Lady Rams are made up or women of all ages, so it is a fantastic opportunity to meet others with a shared interest and develop new friendships.
Football, Fashion, Fitness, Fun! – So many of my favorite things all rolled in to one. The membership provides you VIP access to training camp (happening Sunday, August 9th and Lady Rams can bring a guest), a football Fashion Show, Girls Night out events and new this year, a ‘Picked 6’ gift box delivery that arrives every month including gifts and products from Lady Rams partners.
Membership for the entire season is only $40. (The ‘Picked 6’ boxes alone are worth the membership fee!) If you are a returning member, there is a 25% discount – just use the promo code LR2014.
And if you join, or have any questions before you do, let me know! I so want to watch for you at the events!
Disclosure: I’m proud to be partnering again with the St. Louis Rams and the Lady Rams for the 2015-2016 Season. As always, all thoughts and opinions are mine and mine alone.
