You know, not that I particularly WANT girls to play football, given all the information about the long-term effects of routine head injuries, but I still can't help find it amusing that 32 years after Helen Hunt was the Quarterback Princess, the idea of a (gasp!) girl playing football is still wacky and crazy enough to to be the premise of a whole tv show.

(Before you start listing all the physical reasons football would be a particularly tough nut to crack or why sports are sex-segregated, etc: I KNOW, really. The issue is not whether girls in general should play football. It the stereotypes that such a story relies on for its humor and drama.)
