NFL Fans Among Most Social

American football as it is widely referred to in many quarters is one of the most celebrated sport in America and the National Football League (NFL)  is arguably the most profitable sports business on this planet. The American population is widely renowned  for the love of football, if it is not watching an NFL game on the television with a couple of friends or family then you will probably find them on the stadium cheering  on their favorite NFL team. That in itself goes a long way to show the social impact NFL has on the lives of many people.

Well, a number of factors come into play when you consider NFL fans among most social. Firstly, the NFL is usually associated with a lot of fun fare that goes a long way in attracting large audiences. Talk of the color and pomp usually seen on the game day inside and outside the stadiums, the cheering squads and the entertainment the fans get to enjoy inside the stadium during recess period. Those who opt to enjoy the game at the comfort of their living rooms are not left out as well, they get to  bond with friends  as they enjoy a game of football. All this activities go a long way in creating a socially conducive environment for the  interaction of fans.

And although the league has recently put some limits on players, coaches and referees using Twitter during the games and 90 minutes prior to the games, players are widely followed on social media and interact regularly with their fans.

In a nutshell, the NFL has cemented its place as one of America’s most  popular sporting culture and as such it is inevitable that it has grown to be a social force to reckon with. The passion it commands within its ranks certainly aids in the understanding of why we find NFL fans among most social.

Perfect Golf Swing

Anyone having a little bit golfing expertise cannot forget who Ernie El is. The popularity of this famous golf star rose to a new height when he won the British Open Tournament. This victory of Ernie was not a common one. In this British Open Tournament, which is thought to be one of the most prestigious tournaments in a golf year, Ernie presented an outstanding performance.

Ernie is one of the South African golf players and is also known as “The Big Easy”. The reason behind this nick name of his is that he is 6ft and 3 inches tall in stature, and has such a stance which is perfect for golf swing. Ernie is one of those players who has remained number one for a long time and have won sixty-five victories. Four of these victories are major championships which makes his profile particularly impressive.

In 2010, keeping his outstanding achievements in mind, he was elected the World Golf hall of famer. This is truly a great honor for any golfer to achieve such a position in a short span of time.

Theodore Ernest El was born in October 17, 1969 and has a weight of 95 kg. He started his carrier in 1989 and joined the European Tour in 1992. In 2012, the battle for the title of British Open was between Adam Scott who is currently at 13th position and Ernie El who is at 15th position.  In the last day, Ernie surprisingly won the tour due to outstanding performance. In honor of his win, Golf Sports Info announced their new informational offer for new golfers. With the help of uploaded videos, new golfers can learn how to make a perfect golf swing. Golf Sports Info has announced a free perfect golf swing offer and people can get more information about it from their website.

Our friend, Don Davey is an ex-NFL player and champion for retired NFL players.  Don played 8 seasons for the Packers and Jags.  He will join us on the News, Notes and Rumors show on Tuesday June 12 at 6:00 PM EDT.  Here is an article I felt was important to share with you from Don.

Life After the Game: Keys to Post-NFL Success

By Don Davey

I spent nine wonderful seasons in the NFL with the Green Bay Packers and Jacksonville Jaguars until retiring with a knee injury in 2000. I have spent the past twelve years re-defining myself as an entrepreneur, husband, father, friend, brother, son, athlete, and philanthropist. This transition has challenged me financially, emotionally, socially, intellectually, physically, and spiritually. I freely admit that I struggled with it for a long time and, truth be told, even after twelve years, I still struggle from time to time.

During this time I have watched literally hundreds of my former teammates and opponents go through the same transition. Some have handled it very well…but most have not. Below is a list of the most common mistakes I have witnessed over the years, some of which I have made myself:
