Lesson #1: The Field

So today I actually painted a football field for my ladies. That's right. I painted! I think football should be pretty and stylish. Is that so much to ask? So its missing a couple lines. Who cares? All you need to know is that its 100 yards long with a line every 5 yards. Those little white tick marks each represent a yard.

Simple, right?

There is a team (represented in PINK) that starts on one side of the 50 yard line, bordered by a 10 yard space (called the ENDZONE) and another team (represented in GREEN) on the other. Very basically, the Pink Team wants to run with a ball to the Green Team's endzone. The Green team wants to run it into the Pink Team's endzone. Got it?

Some field facts: So, the field itself is 100 yards long, but with the 10 yard endzones, the entire space is 120 yards long. (Not really important) What kills me is that its 53 and 1/3 yards wide!!?? wtf? Could they have picked a more random measurement? Anyway, I digress.

There are 2 goal posts at the back of the endzones, and the home team's logo is usually painted on the center of the field. That's about it! See what you've learned today? All sorts of interesting stuff. ;)

The oldest team is The Arizona Cardinals (you know, Rod Tidwell's team in Jerry Maguire) They can trace their history back to 1890 in Chicago.
