Come chat Jets with me: @Pontecarloblue

NF: Where did you learn about football – When? and from Who?

AA: In the 80s in the UK American Football started being shown on Channel 4 and it was very popular; my parents went to New York for a holiday and brought me back a Jets jersey in 1987 and that was it, I was a New York Jets fan and have followed the team and the sport ever since.

NF: Priorities of Life: What are your top 3?

AA: Family, friends and football!

NF: If you had any job in the world – what would it be, and why?

AA: I’d like to run a cafe that doubled as a doggy day care and sports bar and sewing room…..that way I could eat cake, watch sports, pet dogs and make dresses.  Sounds practical I’m sure!

NF: How has your association with NFLFemale been a positive influence in your world?

AA: Finding NFLFemale has been brilliant for me. I have found a community of likeminded people who love the game and support it and each other in a  positive, proactive and friendly way.  I have had the pleasure of meeting some other NFLFemale fans when they’ve been in the UK for the International games and know that I will continue to build friends through the community over the years to come.

NF: If you want to know the real side of sports legends, listen to their kids and grandkids. What do you hope others say about you?

AA: I hope that they will say that I was kind, that I was there when they needed me to support them when times are tough and to celebrate and lift them up when things are good.  Oh, and that I make a good G&T.
