Our oldest daughter has recently become interested in football, which, for her, has naturally morphed into an obsession. She wants to know everything she can about the teams, the players and the rules as she watches games with her Daddy on Sundays.

She’s not alone, though, as more women are becoming avid NFL fans than in any other sport.

With stunning HD picture quality, the fastest and most reliable internet connection, and a mobile app that lets you watch the game wherever you are, Verizon FiOS is technology that empowers fans to be part of the game. Watch as FiOS Football Girl leverages FiOS to show up her brother with her football savvy:

Our girls haven’t played a lot of team sports, but after discovering archery at camp a couple years ago — and then seeing Disney’s Brave — they share a love for archery. For the past two years they’ve used a variety of toy bows as part of their outdoor play, but as their passion has continued to grow, we decided that this Christmas it was time to get them real bows and a target so that they can really hone their skills.

If you know anything about us, you may know that we’re not big on gender limitations — which is why I’m the one who works full time and my husband is a stay-at-home dad — and while we’re very traditional in some ways, we encourage our girls to run and climb and build and shoot bows the same way we will encourage their baby brother one day!

Play Like a Girl Contest

Verizon wants to hear from parents who are as proud of their daughter’s athletic achievements as they would be if she was a boy, and that’s why they’ve created the Play Like a Girl contest, where parents can share their daughters’ proudest athletic moments through photos or video.
