In January 2012, around the time of the NY Giants’ last SuperBowl run, I decided I had to do something meaningful with my thoughts, passion, and observations around the game of football, the NFL, and my life-long favorite team. The fact is, I learn a lot from the game I love, and from watching very closely what happens on the playing field and off. I don’t only watch from the perspective of a fan that wants her team to win; but I watch with an eye for the many life and business lessons we can learn from what happens in and around the game of football.
So I decided to write about it, and I called my blog Hergame. And ironically, as I continue to see so many strong and intelligent women sharing this interest in sports, the NFL and their favorite teams – and as I humbly receive great feedback on my blog from people in and around the game (players, media analysts, a many-year NFL GM) in a world traditionally run by men – there became the inspiration for naming this site, Man, It’s Hergame 2! I hope you enjoy my perspective! ~ Ali

I have a lot of favorite football commercials. Some of them just make me stop in my tracks and, well – I just ‘do them verbatim’. Here’s one of my favorites… Just ask me to do an impression of Singletary, Elway, Cowher and Namath! I dare ya!
