Southern Belles Tackle Football
We take our football seriously in the South. Some people refer to it as a religion, but how many churches hold a congregation of 100,000 plus? We decided to find out just what football means to Southern women. The following essays depict love and disdain, but a respect for the social institution of the game that has led some to divide the year into the season, spring football and the offseason.
