Why Quarterbacks Have Short Names?
The National Football League also known as the NFL is the highest level of professional American football. Currently consisting of thirty-two teams from the United States, the NFL is by far, the most attended and much anticipated domestic sports league in the world by average attendance per game, with 67,509 fans per game in the most recent regular season in 2009.
Of all the players in the team though, it’s the quarterbacks who get to bag most of the attention from the team, the coach and definitely the fans. Ever wondered why? Let’s take a look at some facts to help up get to our conclusion.
If their was a single guiding star in every NFL game, that would be the quarterback. Quarterbacks are the leaders of the offensive team and they are most responsible for calling the play in the huddle. And as you know, being the so-called leaders of the pack, it’s the quarterback who gets most of the perks like money or being the coach’s most-favored player. Is that all? No, it doesn’t end there.
Did it ever cross your mind that quarterback players are much better off with shorter names every time you see a smoking hot lady wearing micro-mini shorts that could pass for knickers with their favorite quarterback’s last name tagged at the back? Take a closer look.
NFL quarterbacks; Tony Romo, Brett Favre and Tom Brady are lucky men! Not only are they star quarterbacks from eminent teams, but they were also born with short last names. On the other hand, quarterback players like Ben Roethlisberger is the most unfortunate man in the NFL for having such a long and hard-to-read name.
Why lucky or why not? The answer is simple; quarterbacks with short names are lucky because girls can easily print the last name of their favorite quarterback on the backs of their barely-there bikini bottoms.
As we all know, in this male dominated sport, bouncy bikini babes and the love for football makes a good combination!
