Fearing football season could turn your relationship into pigskin? We've explained the psycho-social reasons that guys are so obsessed with football, and we've even shed light on the fantasy football obsession. Now our resident male offers insights on what women can do to stay in love through Super Bowl Sunday and beyond.
Our series on guys and football kicked off this week with insights that our resident guy's guy, Tomfoolery, provided the women in our office. See, we were starting to think that NFL stood for "No Freaking Love" and that for the next five months in our lives, we'd never see our significant others during weekend daylight hours. Tomfoolery schooled us on the important psychosocial role football plays in guys' lives.
Football season: five months out of every year during which most heterosexual males would rather look at men in tight pants than at women in tight pants. The women at YourTango knew we weren't the only ones whose relationships are affected by our significant others' relationships with football, and so we took our questions and frustrations about football to our resident male mastermind, Tom Miller.
We thought Derek Jeter was officially off the market when he starting dating actress Minka Kelly three years ago. The 37-year-old Yankees short stop and the 31-year-old star seemed like a match made in "beautiful people heaven." There were marriage rumors and everything, but in a surprising turn of events, these lovebirds have called in quits!

I'm a huge Yankees fan. It's a fact. An inarguable one, actually. I mean, what 12-year-old girl gets Yankee tickets for her birthday? (If you couldn't figure that one out, it would be me.) My most recent superfluous expenditure was my 100-dollars-a-pop July 9th tickets. Nevermind that my (BRAND-SPANKIN'-NEW) car broke down en-route to the game, I got to attend one of the greatest days of Derek Jeter’s career. Congrats on 3,000 Captain, and here's five reasons everyone should love Derek Jeter.
Still on a high after the NBA finals? Who's the hottest player? Dirk Nowitzki? Lebron James? Still on a high after the NBA finals? Who's the hottest player? Dirk Nowitzki? Lebron James?

Even if you don't get a visceral thrill from the violent, steroidal ballet of professional football, you (and your relationship, if your partner's a football fan) cannot escape the NFL playoffs, which begin this weekend. Football has never been bigger. It's not just the most popular spectator sport in America, it's the hottest thing on all of television – eight of the top ten broadcasts in 2010 were NFL games. What, you ask, is all the fuss about? Here's a casual fan's guide to the playoffs.
It seems like every show with "wives" in the title is filled with drama, craziness and confrontation—often between the women and their men. Earlier this year, VH1 debuted the series Basketball Wives for which a more appropriate title would have been Exes of the Tall and Unfaithful. So when the network announced the show Football Wives, expectations were more drink throwing and unhappy couples. Not so fast. You won't see any reality TV antics from Deion Sanders' wife, Football Wives star Pilar Sanders.
For as long as we can remember, people have debated whether women who wear provocative outfits are just asking for verbal harassment. While "provocative" is a relative term, it apparently applies to a pair of tight-fitting jeans and a white top. In case you haven't heard, Ines Sainz, a reporter for Mexico's TV Azteca who donned the aforementioned outfit, was allegedly sexually harassed by New York Jets players while she was conducting interviews in the team locker room. 78 percent of the people surveyed on Asylum said that her pants are a "ploy for attention," while only 21 percent have answered that sexual harrassment is unacceptable.
This week's Life & Style is trumpeting Kim Kardashian's new relationship with Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin, and has perhaps the seventh or eighty-first permutation of her "revenge body" on the cover. The tabloid says that Kim's ex-boyfriend Reggie Bush has been e-mailing Kim nonstop since she started dating Miles and is wildly jealous.
Ryan Seacrest and his girlfriend, Dancing With the Stars pro and aspiring country singer Julianne Hough, attempted to put to rest all those "Ryan is gay" rumors by engaging in an enthusiastic snog-fest aboard Ryan's yacht in Italy, well within camera range of the elite paparazzi corps that follows Ryan around whenever the Kardashians are in seclusion.
The World Cup comes only every four years, so its sexy storylines have to have staying power. And while this tournament has been historic for a number of reasons, we'll choose to remember it for the scandals and love matches off the field. Join us as we take a stroll down Memory Touchline.
