It’s great if you’re a gal who loves all things football and tailgating on Hawkeye gameday with your guy.

Why let your man be the only one who gets to watch his favorite thing all day? You might as well have an excuse to cry over something besides your husband abandoning you for football. Invite the girls over to catch up on the latest season of Grey’s Anatomy.
