I have a confession to make. I absolutely love NFL football. That may sound odd coming from a middle-aged mom of three, but you have to understand: I married a Cheesehead – Wisconsin born and bred. So for me, rooting for the Packers is not just sport; it's marital duty.
It's also something that brings my husband and me together with our kids. Though one of our sons defected to the Chicago Bears, watching football remains one of our family's favorite activities. There's just something about experiencing the highs and lows of a game that bonds our family in this weird sort of way. If you're a fan, you know what I mean.
These memories are precious. And, that's why football remains incredibly nostalgic for me. I have fond childhood memories of watching NFL football on Sunday afternoons with my entire family. My mom would usually nod off after doing some crossword puzzle. But, the rest of us would delight ourselves cheering, groaning and yelling at the TV. Best of all, we kids would enjoy three full hours of uninterrupted time with my dad, which was no small thing. He was a surgeon and worked long, consecutive days, so that time together was precious. more >>

The NFL Players Association filed a brief in federal court on behalf of Adrian Peterson, stating that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell had no right to mandate that he should get counseling before returning to the league.
Peterson, the 29-year-old Minnesota Vikings running back, made headlines last Sept. when news broke claiming that he abused his four-year-old son whom the football star struck with a stripped tree branch, resulting in severe lacerations. Although his no-contest plea left him with the ability to continue with the 2014-2015 NFL season, the league officially decided he would remain suspended without pay until next April.
In the brief obtained by ESPN, the NFLPA outlined the parameters of Peterson's contract that they allege Goodell is not following by continuing to suspend Peterson. more >>
