Football garland • A Subtle Revelry

Football garland

This football garland project was inspired by a funny article Bill Simmons wrote, by this clip from Scrubs where J.D. embarrasses the guys by watching footi-ball like a girl, and by the fact that I now live in an NFL team city so it was due time I got into the footballing spirit.

Go Bronco’s…. oh wait… nope… oops… I meant… Go Chargers;)

An ironic take on a football pendant banner.

The download includes 10 funny and completely stereotypical girl sport phrases. It can be printed out directly from your computer onto your teams chosen colors and hung up to decorate for the big game day.

Once printed you will need to think back to high school geometry and cut each page into an upside down triangle (Isosceles to be specific). Then hole punch the two top corners and thread your ribbon behind to add a fun detail to your next football gathering.

I will be hanging mine above the veggie tray to give the ladies a little laugh during the play-offs.

PS. This is meant to be a lighthearted fun project so if you are a girl who actually does love football please don’t be offended. I am not anti-you liking sports, I am just trying to make it laughable for those of us who prefer the commercials to the game.

    I love your disclaimer at the end. I happen to be a girl who loves football and understands the game (did the chains in high school) but also loves the Vikings because I have a huge crush on Brett Favre! :)

    You had it right the first time when you said “Go Broncos!”

    While comics have made a living of gender stereotyping since time began, it still ruffles my feathers to see it promoted.

    I love the banner! Even though I love football, I still think this would be fun for a Superbowl party :-)

    This is hilarious! I want to hang this in my house for the game this weekend, but I think my husband would kill me!
