Female G.O.A.Ts

 

 

We will let others take the baton in the debate over whether or not Tom Brady is the G.O.A.T (Greatest of All Time- which he is, obviously.)

While the entire country will be zoned in on the Pats vs the Rams in Superbowl LIII, we want to talk about another Boston football team who is no stranger to championships and has the rings to prove it.

The Boston Renegades are a full contact, semi-professional women’s football team with four national championships under their belts.  These women are extraordinary. The game is the same as the men's, the dedication and the drive runs in parallel but I would argue that the passion and grit goes beyond.

Each of these athletes (and the all-volunteer staff and organization) has full-time job. Many have family or grad school obligations. Some are active military. They are not paid for the hours they spend training, or compensated for the long travel to away games. They sacrifice for the love of the game.  They have a simple mission: to expand the visibility and influence of women’s football, and to bring another championship home to Boston. 

For anyone who is questioning if women can play football, I'll stop my eyes from rolling back in my head long enough to invite you down to watch a game- the skill is extraordinary and the hits are hard

And Family Dinner has a special place in our hearts for this team. Many of them are members and Erin is a proud alum of the team. You can find Tim and Erin at home games, in matching Family Dinner hoodies, cheering our hearts out.

Oh, and they happened to win the National Title this year.  Beating LA on July 28th, 2018 with a score of 42-18. Your turn, Patriots. We already did our job.

Also! We got you guys some amazing chips for the game. Fresh from the Mi Nina kitchen. They are light, salty and awesome. And don't feel like you have to share. We consider this a single serving bag.

RECIPES

All American Chili:  You can nosh on this all alone or top your chips with it and cheese. 

Tofu Chili: Vegan Chili in the House!  Tofu and beans make for a rich textured chili. 

Fish Stew: Calls for Clam juice which I don't tend to keep gallons of around the house, maybe you do. We will sub out for fish stock or another stock you have on hand

Grape Tomato Salsa - This calls for citrus, which sadly doesn't grow locally, but hopefully you have some kicking around to brighten up the salsa

Roasted Watermelon Radish: These are a bright ray of sunshine for your roasted veggie tray. We also love to eat them raw on salads or sliced thinly on top of your nachos. 

Spinach Dip: I want to swim in a pool of this. That is all. Thank you Christine Liu for bringing this into my life.
