Last night I had a chance to put my football knowledge to work. I had been invited by Broward Health in Weston Florida to be one of two featured speakers dealing with Food, Fitness, and Football. Football 101 for women in a 30-40 minute time frame – so I had to pick what I felt were the toughest parts of football to grasp and also the basic foundation and rules of the game.
The event was catered by Ring-of-Honor Member and Former LB for the Miami Dolphins (Jets big rival), John Offerdahl who owns Offerdahl’s Cafe and Grill and Gridiron Griller. As I was answering a question about “what’s a nickel defense” I looked up and John Offerdahl walked up to me, joking:
“There’s something different with this picture. We have a Female New York Jet in a jersey teaching football, and I’m a male Miami Dolphin wearing an Apron doing cooking AND she really knows what a nickel defense is”! – John Offerdahl
