1st & Flirty: A NFL Viewing For Ladies

It’s football season (duh) and Jersey Girls Sports kicked off the big Falcons vs. Eagles game with a special “Football 101 Course & Mixer!” Sunday evening at Atlanta’s Hudson Grill ladies gathered ready to tackle football basics and etiquette with a feminine twist. Angela Davis and Marcelle English founded the lifestyle organization Jersey Girls Sports for “women who are just as passionate about sports as men, but with better shoes,” and “1st & Flirty” marked their first NFL event. Twins Brandi and Karli Harvey, daughters of comedienne/media star Steve Harvey and founders of Young Fit and Fly, were featured co-hosts. As MC’s they provided comic (they’re actually hilarious) and pulled raffle-tickets/awarded prizes to guests.

In addition to football lessons, guests learned fashion pointers, won prizes, and heard from several speakers. There were flat screens of football slides, a buffet, merchandise table, and relationship expert Dr. Alduan R. Tartt spoke candidly. He listed places women in Atlanta should venture to find quality men and surprisingly, he didn’t list the normal, over-saturated spots. He also promoted his book The Ring Formula: How To Be The Only One He’ll Ever Need in stores now. Gift bags filled with Carol’s Daughter, an issue of Kraze Magazine, and a celebrity fragrances from retail giant Macy’s were given to all attendees.

Blending football, food, fun and sports education was a great success! Women enjoyed a private environment feeling comfortable to ask questions about or profess their passion for the pigskin. Looking forward to the next sporting event for women only, and supporting the movements of both Jersey Girl Sports and Young Fit and Fly in the future. Thanks to T. Morrison Agency for the invitation. *For more pics, check out (and LIKE) my Crackbook Fan Page!*

  1. I hate that I missed this. It was so on the agenda but I got swamped in other obligations. I hope that they have another one.

  2. This looked like a fun event.
