      Since another season of NFL Football got underway last night, High School Football started last weekend, and Penn State has their first game of the season at Beaver Stadium tomorrow, I thought I’d post this article from about.com.  


Five Relationship Lessons You Can Learn from Football

1.  Teamwork.  Just like on the field, when you're in a relationship, you need to know how to work together as a team.  That means understanding YOUR role, and trusting THEM to do their job. 

 2.  Discipline.  Being a pro football player requires discipline, sacrifice, and hard work . . . and the same goes for being in a serious relationship.

 3.  Conditioning.  A player needs to be in top form during football season.  And you should be in a good place before jumping into the dating game . . . that means mentally, emotionally, AND physically.

 4.  Celebrating.  One of the best parts of football games is the touchdown celebrations . . . it keeps the team motivated and builds momentum for the next big play.  And the same principle applies to everyday life too:  So don't forget to celebrate your small victories along the way.

 5.  Perseverance.  Just like winning and losing games, being in a relationship is full of emotional ups and downs.  But if you stick with it, it'll pay off in the end.
