In case you didn’t know it ladies, we’re not your average chicks! All of us, (oh yeah, you too!) make up a growing legion of football lovin’ females who are getting the NFL to sit up and take notice of a major shift in its fan demographics. In fact, the league is going all out this season to open its arms and embrace the nearly 60 million women who “just love them some pigskin” by launching a major expansion of its women’s apparel line. And you’ll never guess who they picked to show off all these fabulous new fashions…
That’s right, yours truly, Nola Chick, had the honor of taking part in the NFL’s new “Fit For You Campaign.” The campaign is a way to show off all the stylish options suitable for everything from a day at the office to a tailgating party. The NFL’s apparel team enlisted the wives, daughters and even granddaughters of head honchos around the league to help show off its hottest new offerings, which include everything from logo rain boots and jeans to team inspired nail polish, checkbook covers, mini-skirts and more! They even showed major love to Chicks in the Huddle for being a voice for female fans, by letting ME model some of this amazing new gear for the NFL Shop’s online catalog.
Each week, you’ll also find new style ideas for fans of rival teams on nfl.com/women. Among some of the featured “rival” models were two gorgeous blondes who had the brilliant idea of designing team inspired snow boots. The Cuce Sisters, Kathleeen and Kristina, kicked off the campaign by modeling sexy styles for Patriots and Dolphins fans. (It’s a good thing Tom Brady didn’t see these gals in their daisy dukes or he may have never had the focus to break that record Monday night.)
This week, it was my turn to “work it” for the cameras, along with Kacie Colbert. (Kacie is a sales planner for the NFL and her dad is the Steelers’ GM.) My fellow Saints fans will have to forgive me for sporting Falcons gear for week 2 of the campaign. But hey, there were flashing lights and loud music. I was delirious people!
