Wedded to the Game: The Real Lives of NFL Women is an actual account of the lives of the women who stand beside the men who comprise the National Football League (NFL). From the players to the coaches, each has a life partner who has endured the rigors associated with living life in the fishbowl of professional athletics. The book examines all phases of life in football, from how women met their player or coach husband/boyfriend, to an NFL woman’s self-identity and career challenges, to raising a family in the spotlight, to helping in the transition to life after football.

Complete with compelling stories from Hall-of-Fame or future Hall-of-Fame players’ wives (Kim Singletary and Jackie Rice) to head coaches’ wives (Kathy Nolan), Wedded to the Game takes readers deeper into the game than ever offered before.
